There have been a number of interesting discussions in recent months
format. It is easy for humans to read and write. It is easy for machines
Programming Language, Standard ECMA-262 3rd Edition - December 1999.
JSON is a text format that is completely language independent but uses
conventions that are familiar to programmers of the C-family of
many others. These properties make JSON an ideal data-interchange language."
X3D, wondering: which X3D players support JSON in the script node?
- BitManagement's BS Contact
- Fraunhofer InstantReality
- Fraunhofer X3DOM
- Sensegraphics H3DAPI
- Octaga Player
- Castle Game Engine
Status reports (yes/no/maybe someday) will be welcome.
It would be great to be able to exchange JSON data from within an
embedded X3D script, or from an HTML/script/X3DOM page, back to an http
server. These might be some really cool examples.
Meanwhile, several of us are interested in examining whether an X3D
encoding using JSON might have any use. It probably isn't too hard to
define an X3D encoding in JSON, we could write a stylesheet to produce
that from the X3D Schema.
We expect that
- JSON is a candidate for streaming mesh compression
- JSON is an alternative for DIS animation streaming
- JSON as part of the forthcoming X3D Compressed Binary Encoding
all the best, Don
