JSON application development for IBM® data servers
The JSON capability in Db2 provides a Java™ API, a command-line interface, and a wire listener feature to manage and query JSON documents that are stored in a Db2 database by using a JSON-oriented query language. These new interfaces are considered NoSQL interfaces. They use query, administration, and data manipulation syntax that is not based on SQL.
The JSON format is often used for serializing structured data and transmitting that structured data over a network connection. It is used primarily to transmit data between a server and a web application, serving as an alternative to XML. It eliminates the need for predetermined schema designs and reduces the need for data transformations.
BSON is a standardized binary representation format for serializing JSON documents. It allows for fast traversal of JSON documents.
