json to xml

How to convert JSON to XML using C# .NET.

JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) is a lightweight data interchange format that is easy for humans to read and write and easy for machines to parse and generate. However, JSON has its limitations, especially when it comes to representing complex data structures and ensuring data integrity in systems that rely on XML. In contrary, XML (Extensible Markup Language) offers robust features for data validation, transformation, and interoperability across diverse platforms. In this article, we are going to explore the details on how to effectively translate JSON to XML using .NET REST API.

API for JSON to XML Conversion

Converting JSON to XML using Aspose.Cells Cloud SDK for .NET is a straightforward process that leverages the powerful features of Aspose’s cloud-based API. This API is renowned for its robust capabilities in processing and manipulating spreadsheet documents. Furthermore, this conversion process ensures data integrity, streamline data exchange processes, and ensures compatibility with systems that require XML data format.

The first step is to search Aspose.Cells-Cloud in NuGet packages manager and click the Add Package button. This will add the SDK reference in your project. Secondly, obtain your client credentials from cloud dashboard. If you do not have an existing account, simply create a free account by following the instructions specified in the quick start article.

Convert JSON to XML with C#

Aspose.Cells Cloud SDK for .NET is a comprehensive solution for working with Excel files and data in the cloud and in this section, we are going to explore the details on how we can easily transform JSON to XML using C# .NET.

CellsApi cellsInstance = new CellsApi(clientID, clientSecret);

Create an object of CellsApi class where we pass client credentials as arguments.

cellsInstance.UploadFile("input.json", inputFile2);

Upload the input JSON file to cloud storage.

var response = cellsInstance.CellsWorkbookGetWorkbook("resultant.json", null, format: "XML", null, null, null, null, "myResultant.xml", null, null);

Initiate JSON to XML conversion API. After successful conversion, the resultant XML is stored in cloud storage.

Transform JSON to XML using cURL Commands

Converting JSON to XML using cURL commands is a convenient method for developers who prefer working with command-line tools and need a quick, scriptable solution for data conversion. Furthermore, this approach is highly beneficial as it allows for automation within shell scripts or batch processes, facilitating integration with existing workflows. In this approach, the first step is to generate a JWT access token using the following command:

curl -v "https://api.aspose.cloud/connect/token" \
 -X POST \
 -d "grant_type=client_credentials&client_id=163c02a1-fcaa-4f79-be54-33012487e783&client_secret=c71cfe618cc6c0944f8f96bdef9813ac" \
 -H "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded" \
 -H "Accept: application/json"

Now that we have a JWT token, we need to execute the following command to convert the input JSON file to XML format. After successful conversion, the resultant XML will be stored in cloud storage.

curl -v "https://api.aspose.cloud/v3.0/cells/{mySourceFile}?format=XML&outPath={myResultantFile}" \
-X GET \
-H "accept: application/json" \
-H "authorization: Bearer {accessToken}"\
-d {}

In case we need to save the resultant XML on local drive, please try using the following cURL command.

curl -v "https://api.aspose.cloud/v3.0/cells/{mySourceFile}?format=XML" \
-X GET \
-H "accept: application/json" \
-H "authorization: Bearer {accessToken}" \
-o "myResultantFile"

Replace mySourceFile with the name of input JSON file (already available in cloud storage), myResultantFile with the name of output XML and, accessToken with JWT access token generated above.
