Felix Meschberger commented on FELIX-3773:
------------------------------------------

I have quickly looked at the code. First we only use the JSON serialization part of the library,
that is we are just writing JSON. What we need here is to probably just be able to create
JSON strings from Map and Collection structures with the added "complication" to care for
escaping.

Second, and this is hurting a bit, we have the odd WebConsoleUtil.keyVal method which depends

> WebConsole uses the JSON library from json.org that contains the following term in its
licence (http://www.json.org/license.html):
> "The Software shall be used for Good, not Evil."
> I believe that this restriction is incompatible with the ASL.
