Forum OpenACS Development: Re: JSON Array & objects
Although we had recently problems on one site with tdom 0.9, it turned out finally that the same problems were already in tdom 0.8.3. I think, tdom 0.9.0 can be recommended in general. The updated version of install-ns.sh contains by default support for 0.9.0.
Concerning Tcl 8.6: since Tcl 8.6.7 there are no known issues in connection with OpenACS.
In fact, that's why I'd rather use it.
JSON's format has become more and more popular, as for website and webservice's integration.
I realized we have very few ad_procs related to JSON. Unfortunately, differently from XML-RPC, JSON is very much encoding dependent, which makes it hard to maintain, even harder to build API standard procs, for community-wide contribution.
