JSON Serialization is the new XML Serialization

Category: Java

We like angle brackets, but sometimes { key: value } is our friend. We are seeing a lot of projects coming out to help with JSON serialization which we can use to send right to the browser.

XStream is a popular XML library written by great developers such as Paul Hammant and Joe Walnes from ThoughtWorks.

Paul just talked about the new JSON support that is coming to XStream.

Now I am waiting for projects that bridge JSON and the relational DB ;)

You may visit the XML-JSON serialization here, too, if you are working with .NET:

JSON has definitely expanded its usage penetration lately. Looking on there are now 5 separate resources available for JSON and PHP, and 2 for ColdFusion, and those are just the libraries that have been released publicly. I must say I really like JSON over XML in a lot of instances. Hopefully it keeps gaining popularity and we see even better interfaces to the model.
