Subject [jira] [Commented] (CAMEL-4930) Provide a Data Format to convert XML <-> JSON directly (json-lib)
Date Thu, 05 Apr 2012 15:44:25 GMT


Raul Kripalani commented on CAMEL-4930:

The last release is less than 1.5 years old (December 2012), not 2+. 

json-lib is quite a stable and mature project from my experience.

It clearly isn't in heavy development at the moment, but shows higher adoption rate
of json-lib (16 users) vs. Jackson (14 users) and Gson (7 users) - the other JSON-processing
libraries supported in Camel (leaving XStream aside - which is a whole different story). 

So I'm inclined to think that Camel should offer json-lib support simply because users use
it, and it solves a different use case than the rest of the libraries currently present in
the project.

> Currently if one wants to convert from XML to JSON, the payload must first be serialised
to an object / POJO.
> The proposal is to create a new Data Format called camel-xmljson which uses the json-lib
library to perform the conversion directly: This library
is Apache-licensed.
