Subject Re: Accessing application/json message body of POST request
Date Sun, 16 Mar 2014 22:00:18 GMT
Hi Bardo,

The simplest way that I have found to handle json posts is to use the text
generator. Alternatively, you are free to write a json generator which
would convert json to xml as this is the default data format of  cocoon. I
have been successfuly using cocoon to handle json (the contemporary data
format of choice) for a few years now. Very recently I have been using
cocoon as middleware between a datasource and Cube. This Node.js app front
ends mongodb using json as the transport over http. Cocoon still rocks in
this new world. Please get in touch if there is anything I can help with.
Best regards Warrell
