A function to get value from multi level object. Usage: get_obj_attr(item, "ItemAttributes.Title")
def get_obj_attr(root, str_path, default_val="", debug=False):
attr_path = str_path.split(".")
base_obj = root
for attr in attr_path:
if hasattr(base_obj, attr):
base_obj = base_obj.__dict__[attr]
if debug:
print "No attribute: %s" % attr
base_obj = default_val
if base_obj != default_val:
base_obj = unicode(base_obj)
return base_obj
