Windows Live Contacts API and JSON? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Are there any plans to provide Windows Live Contacts output using JSON?

    (I noticed that Windows Live Presence API provides presence information using JSON...)

  • I don't think anything like this will appear soon, as the Contacts API is meant for serverside use and not for clientside like the presence API.

    Ofcourse, you could build a proxy that takes the XML and parses it into JSON.

  • Thanks for the response.  I'm plugging my stuff into a framework that expects JSON and was wondering whether there were any future plans for it.

    Anyway, it's easy enough to build a proxy that takes the XML and parses it into JSON before passing it onto the framework.  It's just less error prone if the data is already in JSON format (with the Microsoft stamp on it Smile ).
