[Mapbender-dev] JSON revisited

Hi there,

at the moment we are toying around with JSON to store WFS-T geometries 
in the digitize GUI. We are sending the JSON-string-representation the 
geometry array via Ajax to the server.

There we will build a GML out of the JSON input. We assume it's easier 
to build the GML on the server side because DOM is available etc.

Because the native JSON support in PHP has only just begun in version 
5.2, we are experimenting with JSON-PHP, see


Because JSON overloads several JS datatypes, some conflicts emerge. For 
example, for (var attribute in object) suddenly doesn't work anymore 
because it has an additional attribute: the JSON functions :-)

If anyone has any suggestions concerning JSON use in Mapbender, just let 
us know.
