[Arp] Question about using XMl in ARP applicatuions- Should Iparse and convert to valueObjects

I have my own service which uses the XML service from Christophe to get my
XML data in ARP. In my own service I transfer the XML to VO's or keep it XML
. When it's a site structure (for use in a tree or other navigation View) I
store the XML in a ML .. Then I have a state management class which provides
acces to this model and acts as a layer between the model and views .. I
use the xfactorstudio Xpath api to acces the XML (for example to see what is
the path to the current selectedNode) also all other views listen to the
state management class. So when a different node is selected in the tree
(menu) I set the new value in the state management class.. All views who
listen to state managent updates itself according to position, depth etc..
Easy when the selectedNode is provided from outside the app (
stateManager.getInstance().addState(_root.id) ) so for deeplinking or
For my pages I also use the XML service, but then I convert the data to VO's
and store them in a Model.
Is this any help? Tell me:>

What's the best practice for getting my XML data into an ARP application.
To be more specific say that a client would like to load an XML file that
would provide a bunch of complex dataObjects with other objects within them.
My gut is telling me to create a sevice that would generate valueObjects for
the elements of the xml file. This would make them have more relevant
meaning in the whole application than parsing XML throughout the project
I came across a post by Jesse that seemed to echo this sentiment. To be
clear I wanted to check with the ARP user community and see what has been
most effective in the past.
As a subquestion- if I were to convert this content to some value objects
then what's the approach for populating a dataTree with this- Usually I can
just pass the XMl file a s a data provider but it seems to me that in this
case I would have to code out something to parse the objects and generate
the tree structure.
Let me know what you guys feel is the best way to approach this.
Thanks in advance,
