Architectural Thoughts on JSON from a BizTalk Perspective

Architectural Thoughts on JSON from a BizTalk Perspective

If you were someone who worked in the enterprise integration area and in particular with BizTalk, JSON wasn’t something you would be likely to come across before about 2010. If you did it was usually an unusual scenario. Around this time though there was a large increase in the use of REST based services as an alternative to SOAP based services and closely following that was an increase in scenarios where you may need to use JSON with BizTalk. JSON probably already the default way most new REST based services will offer data, although many do still offer both JSON and XML.

Around this same time BizTalk introduced us to the REST adapter and BizTalk developers begun to explore options for using JSON with BizTalk. This use case will definitely grow a lot in the future versions of BizTalk and we will see more use cases with JSON outside of REST.
