Processing JSON in PHP
Apr 04, 2014 @ 10:40:39

PHPBuilder.com has posted a new tutorial today showing you how to work with JSON in PHP including serialization and database interaction.

This article explains how to use the JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) extension in PHP, going step by step through a series of essential operations. JSON is an object string notation, it is defined as a subset of JavaScript's syntax and its general-purpose is to interchange data format. As you probably know, JSON was first made to be used with JavaScript for accessing remote data, but now it is used by many other languages because JSON data is platform independent data format. JSON can be used natively in JavaScript, but you can also use it in a server-client application logic.

They start with an introduction to the JSON structure and how to both create and encode data using PHP's own json_encode and json_decode. The examples start out using arrays for the data but then move into something slightly more complex - objects. The article talks about JsonSerializable and show how to automatically hook the data into a table and store the content based on the column name/property name match.
