    Out of curiosity have you tried working with Java object serialization? Understand this introduces it's own set of problems, but I think it would be interesting to include in the analysis you've presented thus far, especially how it would interact with query data.... read more »

    CF XML processing is slow and memory intensive because it uses a DOM processor (Xerces), which has to represent the entire document in memory to work with it. My preferred alternative is XOM (http://www.xom.nu/), which provides a very nice API atop a SAX processor instead, which is considerably fast... read more »

My blog entry details the problems and a solution using XOM and a StAX processor: http://orangepips.instantspot.com/blog/index.cfm/2007/3/28/XML-StAX-Processing-with-Coldfusion... read more »
