Description: ------------ PEAR Wddx library has a buggy data types handler when serializing associative php arrays (collections/hash tables/dictionnaries...) with non strictly sequential numeric keys it is interpreting keys as indexes for normal real php arrays as a result keys are lost another minor bug is when dealing with numeric string Reproduce code: --------------- Expected result: ---------------- should have struct nodes Actual result: -------------- got array nodes instead and numeric keys are lost

Can you try the CVS version - I've added the fixes that I spotted. Regards Alan

sure Alan but you forgot the most important: _serializeValue did you carefully take a look at the diff : what's the use of adding _isInt and _isAssoc private methods if you don't call them somewhere besides your swith/case tests are always wrong: switch (gettype($value)) { case 'string': ... you should have this instead: switch (strtolower(gettype($value))) { case 'string': ... anyway my fixes in _serializeValue private methods don't need gettype anymore as it is not strictly reliable best regards Antonin

can you do a quick test to make sure it works, then I'll fire of a release Thanks Alan
 [2004-08-13 02:01 UTC] ez at daoldskool dot org
sure Alan here is the test: no more diffs the array is now correctly serialized and when re-serialize it again i got the full array back ;) best regards Antonin
