Zend_Json provides convenience methods for serializing
native PHP to JSON and decoding JSON to native PHP. For more information
on JSON, visit the JSON project
Zend_Json provides a useful way to convert any
arbitrary XML formatted string into a JSON formatted string. This built-in
feature will enable PHP developers to transform the enterprise data
encoded in XML format into JSON format before sending it to browser-based
Ajax client applications. It provides an easy way to do dynamic data
conversion on the server-side code thereby avoiding unnecessary XML
parsing in the browser-side applications. It offers a nice utility
function that results in easier application-specific data processing techniques.
