I am looking for an Idea how to best store following data in XML so it can be easily read.
Background, i have an app which has api and each api has functions and the functions require parameters and values when they are called. So i am trying to build a test client who has the following hierarchy

<api>
  <function>
      <parm><value><required>
      <parm><value><required>
  </function>
<function>
      <parm><value><required>
      <parm><value><required>
  </function>
</api>
<api>
  <function>
      <parm><value><required>
      <parm><value><required>
  </function>
<function>
      <parm><value><required>
      <parm><value><required>
  </function>
</api>

How are you planning to read the xml?
Are the parameters simple types (int, string) or objects(classes)?
Are you planning to call the method with this parameters and check if the result is OK?
For functions I will have: (Assuming you are using simple types and no result needed.
 <function name="MyMethodName">
     <param>
              <type>
             <value>
     </param>
      <param>
             <type>
             <value>
      </param>
</function>

The method should know whether a parameter is required.
