Processing XML using JSON and Eval

In this article I will discuss using Eval to manage a relatively common situation - processing and extracting data from XML. XML data is used extensively in the Task Engine, but frequently the format is not exactly what one wants or only certain values in the XML string are needed. Creating a specialized handler is not an ideal solution because of the overhead of testing and installing coupled with the potential differences to the XML format you want to process. This creates a perfect scenario for using Eval which creates essentially a handler "in place" and is easily customizable and changeable. .
