Adding JSON file format to IBM Sterling B2B Integrator Map editor

Introduction-->JSON: JSON(JavaScript Object Notation) is an open-standard file format or data interchange format that uses human-readable text to transmit data objects consisting of attribute–value pairs and array data types (or any other serializable value)..
It is a very common data format, with a diverse range of applications, such as serving as replacement for XML in AJAX systems.

sample JSON file

{
"fruit": "Apple",
"size": "Large",
"color": "Red"
}

 

IBM sterling B2B Integrator map editor: This is a tool widely used for translating one file format to other  formats like SAP IDOC, XML EDIFACT, ANSI X12 , CSV etc. But the map editor does not option to create  the above specified JSON format which is widely used across many custom build ERP's .

 

Idea for Enhancement: I propose  IBM sterling B2B Integrator map editor can be enhanced to have options to create JSON file format so that it can be used along with ERP's that uses JSON which increase the sales of IBM sterling B2B Integrator.

    I agree that this would be a very valuable improvement to the Sterling mapper, given that there is so much API activity today which uses json formatted files.
