If you want to try the XML to JSON Conversion Tool at freeformatter.com, you can follow this tutorial:

1. Go to the JSON and XML Conversion Tool page at freeformatter.com.

2. Enter the following XML document in the XML text area:

<profile id="10001">
   <name>John<mid>M</mid>Smith</name>
   <age>25</age>
   <address>
      <street>21 2nd Street</street>
      <city>New York</city>
   </address>
   <phone type="home">212 555-1234</phone>
   <phone type="office">646 555-4567</phone>
   <children/>
</profile>

3. Click the "CONVERT XML TO JSON" button to convert it to JSON. You see the following output near the bottom:

{
   "@id": "10001",
   "name": {
      "#text": [
         "John",
         "Smith"
      ],
      "mid": "M"
   },
   "age": "25",
   "address": {
      "street": "21 2nd Street",
      "city": "New York"
   },
   "phone": [
      "212 555-1234",
      "646 555-4567"
   ],
   "children": []
}

Note that the conversion used some implicit rules:

  • An XML attribute is converted into a JSON name and value pair, with "@" added to the attribute name.
  • Repeating XML elements are converted into a JSON Array.
  • "#text" is used to name XML text content, if needed.
  • Scattered text contents are aggregated to a single JSON Array.
  • Empty XML element is converted to an empty JSON Array.
  • type="..." attributes are incorrectly converted to nothing.

So the XML to JSON conversion tool at freeformatter.com is not good, because it truncates type="..." attributes.
