Hy. I create some c++ classes for opengl(mesh ,polygons,light) ecc.. I would create a c++ parser for that classes. I see that collada is that i search , but it's a xml and what is the best library to work with xml in c++? I see also thath there are some collada library for work with collada , but i don't understand how work , they are simil to an API? in particular what do FCollada and collada dom? Thanks. ps I use vs2003 and vs2005 and vc++ 7.0 and 8.0. [Edited by - giugio on July 30, 2008 9:52:47 AM]

Collada DOM and FCollada are two APIs that parse Collada files. In other words, they do the XML parsing for you.

Parsing COLLADA files by yourself is a nightmare, use FCollada or COLLADA_DOM as pointed out.

You MUST get the collada spec for reference though, as it can get really complicated.

I don't really know exactly, I hear FCollada does a lot more automation than the COLLADA_DOM, but in the other hand the COLLADA_DOM allows for greater control.
