<!--- parse it into xml --->
<cfset xml = xmlParse( CFHTTP.Filecontent )>

<!--- grab the values --->
<cfset status = xml.result.status.xmlText>
<cfset message = xml.result.message.xmlText>
<cfset request = xml.result.request.xmlText>

Thanks!
 I included the code and when i return back as json string to Jquery I get this: {"MESSAGE":1514,"REQUEST":{"cfdumpinited":false},"STATUS":"Success"},

Notice the Request is cfdumpinited: false  . Its supposed to be anumber.

Any suggestions?

Not sure how you're serializing, but this works for me

<cfset data.status = xml.result.status.xmlText>
<cfset data.message = xml.result.message.xmlText>
<cfset data.request = xml.result.request.xmlText>
<cfoutput>#serializeJSON(data)#</cfoutput>

I am just returning as a struct to Jquery.

<cfset status = xml.result.status.xmlText>
<cfset message = xml.result.message.xmlText>
<cfset request = xml.result.request.xmlText>
<cfset returnStruct.message = message>
 <cfset returnStruct.status = status>
 <cfset returnStruct.request = request>

Then when i alert it.

var strIDO = JSON.stringify(DataOBJ);
alert(strIDo)

I get


{"MESSAGE":1514,"REQUEST":{"cfdumpinited":false},"STATUS":"Success"},

<cfset returnStruct.request = request>

Well request is a reserved word. Perhaps using it as a variable name is causing a problem. Try using another name instead

<cfset requestValue = xml.result.request.xmlText>
...
<cfset returnStruct.request = requestValue>
