Server API's Part 3! Bruce will be showing us how to create and consume JSON instead of XML. Bruce will be using jFiles, a brand-new product from CapeSoft, and show us how to construct different types of JSON!
This webinar will be on using JSON instead of XML when building a Server API, or when consuming someone else's API.
JSON is a bit like XML in that it's primarily used to transfer information between programs, or to store ad hoc information for a program. I'll spend a bit of time looking at the JSON format itself and different sorts of JSON you might encounter.
In order to do all this I'll be releasing jFiles, our newest accessory. jFiles has all you need to create and consume JSON using really simple and friendly commands. jFiles works with Clarion 8, 9, 9,1 and 10.
During the Webinar I'll show you how to integrate jFiles into your NetTalk Web Server to add JSON to the supported formats for your API (Hint: that's pretty easy to do.) You'll also see how to construct any JSON packets you may need when making use of other people's API's.
