Hi Jeff,

Congrats on this book! I really like working with both XML and JSON. Personally, I just find it refreshingly satisfying to be able to take a java object (complex or otherwise) and convert it into nicely organized XML or JSON format, that can then be used to do everything from passing it to a web page to be viewed in a table or report, etc..., to dropping it into a table (or tables) in a database. Where do you personally see those particular technologies going in the next few years? Do you envision them being around some time yet to come?

Again, congratulations Jeff!

Hi Randy,

I think that XML and JSON (and YAML) will be around for a long time. As I've said in a previous post, XML and JSON nicely complement each other, and various tools are making use of this. They are here to stay.

I hope that Oracle will finally officially support JSON in Java SE (as they do in Java EE via JSON-P).

Jeff

Thanks Jeff, always interesting to get someone's perspective as to where they see these languages down the road. Cheers.
