According to the user perspective, if user has a xml representation of json
object then user can convert it to json with Badgerfish convetion and send
it to Axis2. But if user doesn't have such xml representation then he needs
to generate Badgerfish convention of Json object. If Axis2 support normal
json object then it would be easy to users to communicate without using
Badgerfish convention.

And there is no point of converting json to xml in middle as both are used
for same purpose. and also Json is
a light-weighted data exchangeable format so it would be great if axis2
supports fully Json too as it support xml.

JSON string is processed inside the JsonMessageReceiver. All dispatching
things happen url based. Therefore Axis2 engine can identify service ,
operation etc.. without processing incoming json string.
