Re: [xml-dev] use of JSON instead of XML

Thanks, Ken for pointing to the earlier discussion. Sorry just forgot that.

This topic has emerged twice in this time frame from me; looks like it is still relevant.

Hi all,
   I've seen in few commercial projects of which I was part recently, and here's the trend I saw,

1) Architects have been choosing to implement REST services instead of using Web Services (using SOAP & XML). Perhaps this is fine with a mobile app, but not always in other software applications.
2) Architects have been choosing JSON in general, instead of XML as a data exchange syntax. Perhaps this is because, JSON is simple to use instead of XML.

My personal feeling is, that people would choose XML when they're developing a big software instead of a tiny one. And when good software engineering is important.

It would be nice to know, opinion from this list, about the above points.
