If you are just checking the format, jsonlint.com is a great site to vet and ID any issues. Copy and paste the data onto the site, it will tell you where the issues are.

On very complex JSON, it is a lifesaver and even on simple stuff, it has pointed me to really simple errors I have made....

Thank you Kevin. Danny, Henrik, and Justin.

Clearly, lesson 56 is to be learning about ccsid.

Also, IE. hmmmm Good tip. I tried IE 11 and discovered the data on http://ventures.martinvt.com/ did not show up with IE either. Apparently it only works in Firefox.

Again, thank you all for the pointers. Very much appreciated.

It shouldn't have any problem as long as the data is correctly encoded. With JSON the typical mistake is with the braces ({}) especially when hardcoded in RPG source. If your job ccsid is 37 (using the US example) and your source files is ccsid 37 then what you key in will look fine in the source and any file you spew out to the IFS, but that doesn't mean that it actually is correct when converted by Apache to (for example) UTF-8. We never hardcode those characters for that reason. It would be useful to see what Booth gets on the browser and if indeed it is the braces that are screwed.
