xml to json

XML to JSON Conversion in C# .NET.

The XML (Extensible Markup Language) has been a widely used format for data representation due to its flexibility and ability to handle complex structures, JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) has gained popularity for its simplicity, ease of use, and better performance with web applications. Therefore, the conversion of XML to JSON enhances the compatibility and performance of your applications, especially when dealing with modern web services and APIs that predominantly use JSON.

API to Change XML to JSON

Converting XML Schema (XSD) to JSON Schema can be a complex task, but the Aspose.Cells Cloud SDK for .NET simplifies this process significantly. Aspose.Cells is renowned for its powerful spreadsheet processing capabilities, and its Cloud SDK extends this functionality to facilitate the transformation of data schemas.

Firstly, we need 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 XML to JSON in C#

With Aspose.Cells Cloud SDK for .NET, you can seamlessly convert an XML Schema into a JSON Schema, ensuring that your data conforms to the necessary structural rules and validation requirements in a JSON format. Let’s further explore the details on changing XML schema to JSOn schema using C# .NET.

CellsApi cellsInstance = new CellsApi(clientID, clientSecret);

Create an instance of CellsApi class by providing client credentials as arguments.

cellsInstance.UploadFile("input.xml", inputFile);

Upload the input XML file to cloud storage.

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

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

Turn XML into JSON using cURL Commands

Converting XML to JSON using Aspose.Cells Cloud is a straightforward process that can be easily automated with cURL commands. This method leverages the powerful capabilities of Aspose.Cells Cloud to handle complex XML structures and deliver accurate JSON conversions efficiently. The first step is to generate a JWT access token based on client credentials, so please execute the following cURL 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"

Once we have the JWT token, we need to execute the following command to export XML schema to JSON schema. The resultant JSON is then stored in cloud storage.

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

In order to save the resultant JSON on local drive, please try using the following cURL command:

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

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