The MES application and the EZ_SoapReader are using JSON to represent arguments, as a return option for queries, and to store MES Queries. It is simple to read, some pointers:

  1. {} is used to represent an object
  2. [] is used to represent an array, array items are separated by commas

The SOAP specification is currently maintained by the World Wide Web Consortium:
