We use JSON in conjunction with .Net apps. It's obscure only in the 400 world. Huge in .NET land. Works great with Java!--script-- etc. It is also a lighter footprint for data transfer vs. XML.

That's what I'm hearing too. I've been able to port a JSON library over to the IBM i system. It can be used to create or parse JSON using C and eventually RPG. It seems to work well.

I've run into it once or twice. If I understand it correctly, JSON is a way to serialize a Java object. Useful for import and export if it's all Java talking to Java, I guess.

Dale,

Java!--script--, perhaps Java, but its JSON="Java!--script-- Object Notation" and as we know, Java!--script-- has zero to do with Java, It was just a dumb NetScape decision to name it similar to Java.
