Processing and Creating JSON from RPG with YAJL
JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) is an increasingly important vehicle for data interchange. Initially used with Web 2.0 style apps for requesting and receiving page updates, it is now commonly used with web services and many other forms of data interchange. Its simple format makes it faster and easier to parse, and uses less space. As a result In some cases it is fast superseding the use of XML and that means that it is essential that your RPG applications can both create and parse JSON.In this session Jon will discuss how Scott Klement's port of the open source YAJL tool kit makes it simple for RPG programs to both create and consume JSON.
