JXON: an Architecture for Schema and Annotation Driven JSON/XML Bidirectional Transformations
Senior Principal Software Engineer
JSON and XML are seen by some as competing markup formats for content and data. JSON has become predominant in the mobile and browser domains while XML dominates the Server, Enterprise and Document domains. Where these domains meet and need to exchange information there is pressure for one domain to impose on the other their markup format. JXON is an architecture that addresses this problem by providing for high quality bidirectional transformations between XML and JSON. Previous approaches provide for only a single mapping intended to cover all cases, but generally cover few cases well. JXON uses Schema and annotations to allow highly customizable transformations that can be tuned for individual schemas, elements, attributes and types yet still be easily configured.
