Hi Stephan;Thank you for the kind words; I think it is working well. I'm glad to hear the Haiku Network API is getting some polish too.
I am presently doing some work on localisation setup. Time permitting, I should be able to push some of that material later in the week.
You are right that JSON generation and parsing is quite easy to implement; some years ago I wrote one in another language. Beyond the basic JSON serialisation there are downstream infrastructural complications around marshalling model objects and that has the potential to get quite complex.
The library used in the JSON-RPC element on the HDS application server _should_ be able to automatically produce this stuff from the model objects used in the API;
https://github.com/netmail-open/wjelement It does not look like it does stub-generation though. :-/Have you see any other C/C++ side libraries that might support this _sort_ of thing?
cheers. On 25/03/14 11:30 am, Stephan Aßmus wrote:
With the work on the Haiku network API for WebPositive making it really easy to connect to the server, the only question mark remaining is the JSON implementation. I've looked at existing libraries, and there are really many of them, just for C++ and C alone. I am still wondering whether I should bother with porting something. While there might be pit-falls with JSON that can be avoided by using something mature and proven, the format does seem quite simple and I don't want to implement something usable by all, but something which targets a specific server only. Also, converting to/from BMessages seems the obvious way to go. I'll see.
