Background

This project is created as part of the process of transitioning Oracle Java EE 8 and GlassFish technologies to the Eclipse Foundation as described in The Eclipse Enterprise for Java Project Top Level Project Charter (https://projects.eclipse.org/projects/ee4j/charter).

Scope

Eclipse Project for JSON-P provides the API, TCK, and an implementation for Java API for JSON Processing, starting from the specification defined by JSR-374.

Description

Eclipse Project for JSON-P is a Java API to process (e.g. parse, generate, transform and query) JSON documents. It produces and consumes JSON in a streaming fashion (similar to StAX API for XML) and allows to build a Java object model for JSON using API classes (similar to DOM API for XML).

Why Here?

The top level EE4J project was created consistent with the direction described in The Eclipse Enterprise for Java Project Top Level Project Charter (https://projects.eclipse.org/projects/ee4j/charter).   This project is created under the top level EE4J project as one of Oracle Java EE 8 and GlassFish technologies being transitioned to the Eclipse Foundation.
