To add to Vern's comment. The role IWS plays is in this area is acting as a web service client. It has no inherent JSON consumption capability (unless they've snuck that in and I didn't notice). What it provides is the equivalent to Scott's HTTPAPI and personally I think it is fair more complicated and less flexible than Scott's ap[proach. I'm using IWS more as a provider of web services, but still don't use it for consuming.

As Vern notes, YAJLINTO with DATA-INTO is a great tool. Or for situations where that doesn't fit then just the "raw" YAJL APIs.

Booth - it might depend on how you will use IWS - do you mean to consume a web service in your RPG program?

Even if it can be used, it is probably like using a bulldozer or steam shovel to plant tulips.

I have 2 recommendations

- the DATA-INTO op code that is now available, combined with Scott Klement's YAJL service program
- embedded SQL using the JSON_TABLE function that is similar to what can be done with XMLTABLE.

I don't remember if JSON_TABLE has the underscore - it might be JSONTABLE
