Topic: JSON

The JSON format is extremely popular on the web. JSON however is just a data structure. The interoperable use of JSON requires the full definition of allowed data structures which requires the definition of a schema for those data structures. Traditionally, this has been done at the OGC using XML. Therefore, the use of JSON may duplicate much of the work done on XML leading either to a situation where implementations are required to support both XML and JSON, thereby increasing the complexity of implementation, and/or to a situation where implementations fragment between those supporting XML and those supporting JSON, reducing interoperability.

the next hype. To me it is just another protocol binding for W*Ss, next to KVP, POX, SOAP, and REST. An internal c/s interface, not more, not less. If we modularize (!) specs accordingly this will not pose substantial complexity. WCS is demonstrating this.
