Does Workflow support Json?

This issue has been solved. See solution.

We need to consume a 3rd party API that returns data in JSON format. Does Workflow7 support that, and if so, is there a particular custom component type that we should use?

Thanks in advance for your help!

What king of API are you using? If it's a webservice, you can use the webservice generator to hit the web service and generate components around the service methods.

Yes, it's a web service, but not the traditional type which returns data in xml format. This web service returns data in JSON format, so I was wondering if the Symantec webservice generator would translate JSON correctly?

I don't know right off if it will work off the top of my head... if the site is public/forward-facing, I can try hitting it for you and giving it a shot.

Thank you for the offer, but the site is not public-facing, so I'll need to work through this myself. Thank you again for your interest.
