JSON-lib is a java library for transforming beans, maps, collections,
java arrays and XML to JSON and back again to beans and DynaBeans.
It is based on the work by Douglas Crockford in http://www.json.org/java.
The following tables sumarizes the types conversion between java and
|string||<=>||java.lang.String, java.lang.Character, char|
|number||<=>||java.lang.Number, byte, short, int, long, float, double|
|array||<=>||net.sf.json.JSONArray (object, string, number, boolean, function)|
Json-lib comes in two flavors, depending on the jdk compatibility. json-lib-x.x-jdk13 is compatible with JDK 1.3.1 and upwards. json-lib-x.x-jdk15 is compatible with JDK 1.5, includes support for Enums in JSONArray and JSONObject. Please reffer to the appropriate javadoc links available in the project menu.
Json-lib requires (at least) the following dependencies in your classpath:
data-interchange format. It is easy for humans to read
and write. It is easy for machines to parse and
Programming Language, Standard ECMA-262 3rd Edition -
December 1999. JSON is a text format that is completely
language independent but uses conventions that are
familiar to programmers of the C-family of languages,
and many others.
These properties make JSON an ideal data-interchange language.
