JSON becomes more and more important by the day, and a growing number of IBM i shops now need to generate and/or process JSON data.

In this session, you learn how to use the YAJL Open Source JSON utilities which allow RPG programmers to easily generate and consume JSON. We will also discuss the YAJL derived DATA-INTO parser and how it can be used to easily consume most JSON data.

You will learn how to use the free YAJL tools to generate and parse JSON. You will also learn the benefits and limitations of using RPG's DATA-INTO with the YAJLINTO parser.
YAJL is an important alternative to using SQL to consume and generate JSON. It can handle any JSON document without jumping through the hoops sometimes required by SQL. It is an important tool for RPGers to add to their toolbox.
