Hi all,

I'm working on a project that involves two layers: one is written in C++ 
and the other one in Javascript. The C++ layer contains the model of the 
application in form of a tree in a similar way as HTML does (nothing really 
complicated, just elements with attributes).

The interaction between these two layers is done using JSON. We manually 
implement the classes that serialize/deserialize JSON requests/responses 
and it is becoming a waste of time (plus the impact in maintenance). I was 
thinking about using protocol buffers to describe our model in terms of 
.proto files and then write a layer that automatically performs the 
serialization/deserialization to/from JSON according to our schemas.

I started to look at protocol buffers recently so I might be asking 
something stupid. My question is: is protobuf the right choice to represent 
our data model when:

 1. the model consists of hierarchy of classes.
 2. a model instance is a tree (objects are connected creating a tree 
 3. the model not static: these tree suffer changes (tree operations like 
add/delete/move/update nodes, etc.)

Thanks in advance.
