deserialize Argument Reference

useCustomSerializer boolean
Required
Default: true

Whether to use the custom serializer or not. The custom serializer will be always used for deserialization.
If false, the XML/JSON deserialization will be done using the default ColdFusion behavior.
If any other type is passed with useCustomSerializer as false, then TypeNotSupportedException will be thrown.
