36AO Working with JSON in RPG

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

JSON is quickly becoming an important document format for business data interchange, so what's the best way to process it from RPG? JSON provides the same benefits as XML, but is smaller (and so transmits over a network more quickly) and is much more efficient than XML to work with in web applications. Naturally, this means that your RPG business applications need to learn how to speak JSON in order to talk to many of the newer web services or exchange data with many tech-savvy business partners. In this session, Scott will explain how the open source YAJL tool can be used from an RPG program to process or generate JSON in an efficient manner.

Learning Objectives:

  • Refresher on the basics of JSON and why it's important

  • Learn about the YAJL open source program

  • How to generate JSON in RPG

  • How to read/parse JSON in RPG
