NAME

JSON::Any - Wrapper Class for the various JSON classes.

VERSION

Version 1.08

SYNOPSIS

This module will provide a coherent API to bring together the various JSON modules currently on CPAN. This module will allow you to code to any JSON API and have it work regardless of which JSON module is actually installed.

        use JSON::Any;

        my $j = JSON::Any->new;

        $json = $j->objToJson({foo=>'bar', baz=>'quux'});
        $obj = $j->jsonToObj($json);

or

        $json = $j->encode({foo=>'bar', baz=>'quux'});
        $obj = $j->decode($json);

or

        $json = $j->Dump({foo=>'bar', baz=>'quux'});
        $obj = $j->Load($json);

or

        $json = $j->to_json({foo=>'bar', baz=>'quux'});
        $obj = $j->from_json($json);

or without creating an object:

        $json = JSON::Any->objToJson({foo=>'bar', baz=>'quux'});
        $obj = JSON::Any->jsonToObj($json);

On load, JSON::Any will find a valid JSON module in your @INC by looking for them in this order:

        JSON::XS 
        JSON 
        JSON::DWIW 
        JSON::Syck

And loading the first one it finds.

You may change the order by specifying it on the use JSON::Any line:

        use JSON::Any qw(DWIW Syck XS JSON);

Specifying an order that is missing one of the modules will prevent that module from being used:

        use JSON::Any qw(DWIW XS JSON);

This will check in that order, and will never attempt to load JSON::Syck. This can also be set via the $ENV{JSON_ANY_ORDER} environment variable.

FUNCTIONS

new

Will take any of the parameters for the underlying system and pass them through. However these values don't map between JSON modules, so, from a portability standpoint this is really only helpful for those paramters that happen to have the same name. This will be addressed in a future release.

handlerType

Takes no arguments, returns a string indicating which JSON Module is in use.

handler

Takes no arguments, if called on an object returns the internal JSON::* object in use. Otherwise returns the JSON::* package we are using for class methods.

objToJson

Takes a single argument, a hashref to be converted into JSON. It returns the JSON text in a scalar.

to_json
Dump
encode

Aliases for objToJson, can be used interchangeably, regardless of the underlying JSON module.

jsonToObj

Takes a single argument, a string of JSON text to be converted back into a hashref.

from_json
Load
decode

Aliases for jsonToObj, can be used interchangeably, regardless of the underlying JSON module.

BUGS

Please report any bugs or feature requests to bug-json-any at rt.cpan.org, or through the web interface at http://rt.cpan.org/NoAuth/ReportBug.html?Queue=JSON-Any. I will be notified, and then you'll automatically be notified of progress on your bug as I make changes.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

This module came about after discussions on irc.perl.org about the fact that there were now six separate JSON perl modules with different interfaces.

In the spirit of Class::Any, JSON::Any was created with the considerable help of Matt 'mst' Trout.
