The NENA Data Structures Committee seeks volunteers for the development of a white paper that explores Representational State Transfer (REST) and JavaScript Object Notation (JSON). The white paper will be delivered to the NENA Development Steering Council and NENA staff to aid in their decision to adopt JSON as the format for NG9-1-1 data elements (instead of XML), and REST for NG9-1-1 web services (instead of SOAP). 

The white paper will list advantages and disadvantages of the proposed changes, any issues with NIEM conformance, and recommendations regarding whether or not to adopt JSON and REST. If adoption of JSON and REST is recommended, the white paper will recommend a migration plan.

The workgroup will particularly benefit from those with knowledge of, and experience working with, XML, JSON, REST, SOAP, and NIEM-conformant data schemas. Weekly calls will be held on Mondays from 12PM – 1PM Eastern.
