Dear IBM i and Power Systems colleagues,

Come to learn JSON for IBM i full day from Birgitta Hauser, the "Queen of SQL".

JSON (Java Script Online Notation) is a data exchange format like XML. However JSON is simpler, less verbose and can be faster parsed than XML. In this way JSON becomes more and more important for data exchange, especially in composition with RESTful web services.  With Release 7.3 IBM introduced (and also provided for 7.2) all kinds of scalar and table functions for creating and consuming JSON data. The JSON data to be consumed can be located in a column of a Db2 table, in a source file member or in the IFS. Additionally IBM provided http-functions located within the SYSTOOL library for accessing RESTFul web services. By combining the http-functions with the JSON_TABLE table function, JSON data returned by a web service can be directly consumed. So everything is available, let’s start!
