Raphael Stolt's Blog:
Handling JSON responses on the client side
Jun 06, 2007 @ 07:41:00

In a previous post, Raphael Stolt showed how to create a simple application that handled the transmission of a JSON-formatted message from the Zend Framework's Zend_Service component (translating XML to JSON in the process). In this new post today he shows the other half of the equation - how to handle the JSON messages on the receiving end.

In this post I'd like to show how to unpack the JSON response and render a visual representation by utilizing the Template class of the Prototype JavaScript library.

The code is all Javascript but it's a good example of how to break down the request and output a simple list format of the contents to the page (record "shelf" and record information).
