Ken Treis has post up called Deep SIXX with XMLPullParser about how he and the folks at his company use SIXX to transfer objects between GemStone and Pharo.

Ken ported Antony Blakey’s XMLPullParser from VisualWorks to Squeak in a (successful) attempt to reduce the amount of memory consumed while copying large object graphs using SIXX.

If you are developing in Squeak/Pharo and deploying in GemStone, then you should check out Ken’s work.
