There's quite a bit going on at Rockall Towers right now, work-wise, which is giving me lots of excuses to learn about things I've always meant to, while getting paid to do so, as well as being able to pass the benefits on to you guys. Luckily for you I always seem to have an understanding with my
customers clients that parts (although, only ever the underlying technology) of what we work on together will inevitably end up on this site. IPR rarely rears its ugly head. If a client ever did object to this I think I would probably turn the work down.
Anyway, I digress. Late last week I used JSON (in conjunction with Ajax) for the first time. And I like it. A lot!
I don't want to go in to to much detail right now, as I want to share the demo and write about it more in a full-on article. For now I will tease you with this demo application. Like the Name Picker demo from a while back this app also uses the data in the database you lot helped compile.
What surprised me was the lack of straight-forward documentation out there. Not only about using JSON with Domino, but JSON in general. This can be off-putting when JSON is just another acronym you're supposed to know about (JAAYASTKA?). Well, it was for my anyway. Hopefully my article/demo will show it's something to embrace while being easy to learn as well as a benefit to your applications.
