JSON is becoming the backbone for meaningful data interchange over the internet. This format is now supported by an entire ecosystem of standards, tools, and technologies for building truly elegant, useful, and efficient applications. With this hands-on guide, author and architect Tom Marrs shows you how to build enterprise-class applications and services by leveraging JSON tooling and message/document design. JSON at Work provides application architects and developers with guidelines, best practices, and use cases, along with lots of real-world examples and code samples. You’ll start with a comprehensive JSON overview, explore the JSON ecosystem, and then dive into JSON’s use in the enterprise. Get acquainted with JSON basics and learn how to model JSON data Learn how to use JSON with Node.js, Ruby on Rails, and Java Structure JSON documents with JSON Schema to design and test APIs Search the contents of JSON documents with JSON Search tools Convert JSON documents to other data formats with JSON Transform tools Compare JSON-based hypermedia formats, including HAL and jsonapi Leverage MongoDB to store and access JSON documents Use Apache Kafka to exchange JSON-based messages between services
This compact syntax reference covers syntax and parameters central to JSON object definitions. You’ll learn the syntax used in the JSON object definition language, logically organized by topical chapters, and getting more advanced as chapters progress, covering structures and file formats which are best for use with HTML5. Furthermore, the JSON Quick Syntax Reference includes the key factors regarding the data footprint optimization work process, the in-lining of CSS and JS files, and why a data footprint optimization work process is important. What You'll Learn • Use the object definition syntax supported in JSON• Define a JSON content production workflow• Gain an understanding of the concepts and principles behind JSON object definitions• Use JSON code snippets and apply them in your web applications• Utilize the NetBeans, Android Studio, and Eclipse IDEs for your JSON coding Who This Book Is For Web developers, Android application developers, and user interface designers.
The web services architecture provides a new way to think about and implement application-to-application integration and interoperability that makes the development platform irrelevant. Two applications, regardless of operating system, programming language, or any other technical implementation detail, communicate using XML messages over open Internet protocols such as HTTP or SMTP. The Simple Open Access Protocol (SOAP) is a specification that details how to encode that information and has become the messaging protocol of choice for Web services.Programming Web Services with SOAP is a detailed guide to using SOAP and other leading web services standards--WSDL (Web Service Description Language), and UDDI (Universal Description, Discovery, and Integration protocol). You'll learn the concepts of the web services architecture and get practical advice on building and deploying web services in the enterprise.This authoritative book decodes the standards, explaining the concepts and implementation in a clear, concise style. You'll also learn about the major toolkits for building and deploying web services. Examples in Java, Perl, C#, and Visual Basic illustrate the principles. Significant applications developed using Java and Perl on the Apache Tomcat web platform address real issues such as security, debugging, and interoperability.Covered topic areas include: The Web Services Architecture SOAP envelopes, headers, and encodings WSDL and UDDI Writing web services with Apache SOAP and Java Writing web services with Perl's SOAP::Lite Peer-to-peer (P2P) web services Enterprise issues such as authentication, security, and identity Up-and-coming standards projects for web services Programming Web Services with SOAP provides you with all the information on the standards, protocols, and toolkits you'll need to integrate information services with SOAP. You'll find a solid core of information that will help you develop individual Web services or discover new ways to integrate core business processes across an enterprise.
"Json.NET Declassified" is a must-have book if your .NET applications communicate over the internet. Sooner or later, all web developers will have to work with JSON data. When that time comes, most C# programmers turn to Json.NET, the most popular .NET library for parsing JSON data. Json.NET is a robust library with many useful features, spread across an abundance of classes. Most developers use only a fraction of Json.NET's powerful capabilities. If you are already familiar with C#, then you can quickly master Json.NET for your Visual Studio (and Visual Studio Code) applications using the techniques contained in this book. Simple code samples are used to illustrate each concept. "Json.NET Declassified" guides you step-by-step, from the beginning, learning the basic concepts before tackling more advanced features. Written by a poor, country, computer programmer from Long Beach, California, "Json.NET Declassified" is the culmination of many years spent developing .NET e-commerce applications.
Java XML and JSON is your one-stop guide to mastering the XML metalanguage and JSON data format along with significant Java APIs for parsing and creating XML/JSON documents (and more). The first six chapters focus on XML along with the SAX, DOM, StAX, XPath, and XSLT APIs. The remaining four chapters focus on JSON along with the mJson, GSON, and JsonPath APIs. Each chapter ends with select exercises designed to challenge your grasp of the chapter's content. An appendix provides the answers to these exercises. What You'll Learn Master the XML language Learn how to validate XML documents Learn how to parse XML documents with the SAX, DOM, and StAX APIs Learn how to create XML documents with the DOM and StAX APIs Learn how to extract values from XML documents with the XPath API Learn how to transform XML documents with the XSLT API Master the JSON format Learn how to validate JSON documents Learn how to parse and create JSON documents with the mJson and Gson APIs Learn how to extract values from JSON documents with the JsonPath API Who This Book Is For /divIntermediate or advanced Java programmers/developers.
This second edition of the bestselling Learning XML provides web developers with a concise but grounded understanding of XML (the Extensible Markup Language) and its potential-- not just a whirlwind tour of XML.The author explains the important and relevant XML technologies and their capabilities clearly and succinctly with plenty of real-life projects and useful examples. He outlines the elements of markup--demystifying concepts such as attributes, entities, and namespaces--and provides enough depth and examples to get started. Learning XML is a reliable source for anyone who needs to know XML, but doesn't want to waste time wading through hundreds of web sites or 800 pages of bloated text.For writers producing XML documents, this book clarifies files and the process of creating them with the appropriate structure and format. Designers will learn what parts of XML are most helpful to their team and will get started on creating Document Type Definitions. For programmers, the book makes syntax and structures clear. Learning XML also discusses the stylesheets needed for viewing documents in the next generation of browsers, databases, and other devices.Learning XML illustrates the core XML concepts and language syntax, in addition to important related tools such as the CSS and XSL styling languages and the XLink and XPointer specifications for creating rich link structures. It includes information about three schema languages for validation: W3C Schema, Schematron, and RELAX-NG, which are gaining widespread support from people who need to validate documents but aren't satisfied with DTDs. Also new in this edition is a chapter on XSL-FO, a powerful formatting language for XML. If you need to wade through the acronym soup of XML and start to really use this powerful tool, Learning XML, will give you the roadmap you need.
