I'm not even talking about xpath. JSONPath does the same thing, except through JSON documents.


The *only* reason JSONPath is simpler is because JSON *structure* is simpler (no attributes, no namespaces, all keys are fixed to field names instead of based on the key marker in an XSD schema)

Yes, *XML* is fundamentally more "powerful" than JSON because it can represent more data in more ways. It's more expressive.

However, it's also clunky if all you need is something basic like JSON provides.
hack everything.
