More for my own sake than anything else I thought I would comment on this article… This is a good post that details how to create JSON Web Service with .NET technologies.
- JSON is easy
- JSON is nothing more than name : value pairs assigned within an object
- JSON is easy to understand because if written well, it’s a self-documenting structure.
- JSON is fast (parsing is extremely efficient)
- JSON organizes the ugly mess of procedural programming
An example of a JSON object:
"name": "Jack (\"Bee\") Nimble",
"frame rate": 24
From my seat, this is a lot easier to understand than SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) that has been the standard for .NET Web Services ever since I can remember…
But also an interesting read is The Limitations of JSON, so it’s not a silver bullet.
