Both XML and JSON are popular standards for capturing and describing structured and unstructured data. JSON is well suited for storing or transmitting data efficiently with very little overhead, whereas XML offers a rich environment that includes entities and a mechanism to support metadata and extensibility.
The ability to work seamlessly with XML and JSON in a single development environment is a huge time saver, especially when it makes sense to convert existing data.
You can convert a single file or perform a mass XML to JSON conversion on a large number of XML files instantly. Simply right-click the desired folder in the Project window.
Numerous options make it easy to customize how you want the conversion to proceed.
All the XML to JSON transformation functionality described above is also available for converting JSON to XML. You can either convert instance files or transform a JSON Schema to XSD. When converting between schema formats, you can even generate a sample XML or JSON instance file.
When more complex or recurrent XML and JSON data mapping is required - or if you need to convert JSON and XML between other data formats - MapForce is the tool for the job. An any-to-any data transformation tool, MapForce supports XML, JSON, and myriad other data formats as inputs and outputs for powerful data transformations. You can even combine multiple source or target types, for instance, to map XML and database data to a JSON output file.
Simply drag and drop to define your data mapping rules and choose from a comprehensive library of data processing functions and filters. Or, build your own with the visual function builder.
For the ultimate flexiblity, MapForce supports any-to-many data mapping as well as chained mappings.
Once your mapping is defined, you can view and save the mapping output immediately, or automate the conversion via the high-performance MapForce Server software.
XMLSpy and MapForce are both well-suited for converting between XML and JSON in different scenarios. Now, you can get both of these tools in the specially-priced Altova MissionKit. When you download the MissionKit, you'll get both XMLSpy AND MapForce - plus 5 other development software products - for less than the price of two.
