Re: [Suncoast-iPhone-Devs] JSON Frameworks

Thanks for the json-framework link. ?You might want to look into ObjectiveResource as a solution for wrapping JSON dictionaries in objects, if you haven't already. ?I haven't used it in production but it looks pretty good.

We briefly talked about using JSON for the web service interface

ObjC frameworks we mentioned.

Barry mentioned TouchJSON -
I mentioned json-framework -

I use json-framework in my CoreGraphics game, Pucker, to convey
scoring and neural network information between the app and a web
service. ?The web service uses Ruby on Rails, so it was really easy to
configure access to the data in multiple formats, including HTML, XML,
and JSON. ?On the iPhone side, json-framework is easily integrated
into the app, and there's a simple guide on the project web site. ?The
documentation is a bit obscure, but it's open source, so you can dig
into the code if you can't find answers in the docs.

Both of the frameworks mentioned here follow the same basic premise.
They both provide parsing utilities to convert JSON content in a
NSString object into either a NSArray or a NSDictionary object
representation of the JSON content, and vice versa. ?At the moment,
I'm trying to figure out how to encapsulate the NSDictionary data into
a custom object type, so I can wrap the JSON data in an associated
object instance and access it directly. ?If I find anything promising,
I'll share what I find.

I could go into a lot more detail. ?If anyone is interested, let me
know, and I will be happy to elaborate.
