NAME

       SOAP::Deserializer - the means by which the toolkit manages the conversion of XML into an
       object manageable by a developer

DESCRIPTION

       SOAP::Deserializer provides the means by which incoming XML is decoded into a Perl data
       structure.

METHODS

       context
           This provides access to the calling context of "SOAP::Deserializer". In a client side
           context the often means a reference to an instance of SOAP::Lite. In a server side
           context this means a reference to a SOAP::Server instance.

EXAMPLES

   DESERIALIZING RAW XML INTO A SOAP::SOM OBJECT
       A useful utility for SOAP::Deserializer is for parsing raw XML documents or fragments into
       a SOAP::SOM object. SOAP::Lite developers use this technique to write unit tests for the
       SOAP::Lite module itself. It is a lot more efficient for testing aspects of the toolkit
       than generating client calls over the network. This is a perfect way for developers to
       write unit tests for their custom data types for example.

       Here is an example of how raw XML content can be parsed into a SOAP::SOM object by using
       SOAP::Deserializer:

           $xml = <<END_XML;
           <foo>
             <person>
               <foo>123</foo>
               <foo>456</foo>
             </person>
             <person>
               <foo>789</foo>
               <foo>012</foo>
             </person>
           </foo>
           END_XML

           my $som = SOAP::Deserializer->deserialize($xml);
