Update readme for 20151123 release
JSON in Java [package org.json] JSON is a light-weight, language independent, data interchange format. See http://www.JSON.org/ The files in this package implement JSON encoders/decoders in Java. It also includes the capability to convert between JSON and XML, HTTP headers, Cookies, and CDL. This is a reference implementation. There is a large number of JSON packages in Java. Perhaps someday the Java community will standardize on one. Until then, choose carefully. The license includes this restriction: "The software shall be used for good, not evil." If your conscience cannot live with that, then choose a different package. The package compiles on Java 1.8. JSONObject.java: The JSONObject can parse text from a String or a JSONTokener to produce a map-like object. The object provides methods for manipulating its contents, and for producing a JSON compliant object serialization. JSONArray.java: The JSONObject can parse text from a String or a JSONTokener to produce a vector-like object. The object provides methods for manipulating its contents, and for producing a JSON compliant array serialization. JSONTokener.java: The JSONTokener breaks a text into a sequence of individual tokens. It can be constructed from a String, Reader, or InputStream. JSONException.java: The JSONException is the standard exception type thrown by this package. JSONString.java: The JSONString interface requires a toJSONString method, allowing an object to provide its own serialization. JSONStringer.java: The JSONStringer provides a convenient facility for building JSON strings. JSONWriter.java: The JSONWriter provides a convenient facility for building JSON text through a writer. CDL.java: CDL provides support for converting between JSON and comma delimited lists. Cookie.java: Cookie provides support for converting between JSON and cookies. CookieList.java: CookieList provides support for converting between JSON and cookie lists. HTTP.java: HTTP provides support for converting between JSON and HTTP headers. HTTPTokener.java: HTTPTokener extends JSONTokener for parsing HTTP headers. XML.java: XML provides support for converting between JSON and XML. JSONML.java: JSONML provides support for converting between JSONML and XML. XMLTokener.java: XMLTokener extends JSONTokener for parsing XML text. Unit tests are maintained in a separate project.
