XML to NSDictionary

I hope you could help me. This is the scenario:

1.- My client have a RSS with XML.
2.- He wants to publish it into a iPhone.
3.- As you know, the native XML Object for Objective-C really sucks... so, here is my cuestion:

¿There is a library to convert XML to NSDictionary like SBJSON does?

Also for my client policies, I am unable to create a proxy file in my server which could convert the XML to JSON. I need to connect directly to their server.

Or maybe, ¿do you know an alternative XML Parser?

Thanks in advance. CYa!

    NSXMLParser is a little clumsy, but will do what you want and is quick enough for smaller XML packets.

    Have a look through this article to see if it suits what you are planning to do

    If your XML is coming from a SOAP webservice then this code generator takes all the hassle out of dealing with the SOAP service and also does handle parsing into a NSDictionary (depanding on the format of your XML).
