Improved JSON Support

More improvements to the JSON support in GlassFish. Kohsuke reports on progress in the client-side programming model, including a new, JavaScript-centric tool in the spirit of wsimport).

The JavaScript client can then just include the proxy script and then asynchronously invoke the WS service as follows:

<script src="path/to/endpoint?js"></script> myService.get( {id:5}, function(r) { alert("ID="; alert("title="+r.title); } );

The JSON extension exploits the Schema analysis machinery in JAX-WS which means that it can generate nice JavaScript and can also do things like generating very nice looking documentation automatically - as shown (somewhat washed out) at left.

JSON support is in the "and more..." portion of Kohsuke and Jitu's presentation at JavaOne: TS-4948 "Unleashing the Power of JAX-WS RI: Spring, Stateful Web Services, SMTP, and More... :-). At least Kohsuke, and probably also Jitu, will also be present at GlassFish Day - register for free here.
