As announced earlier, Oracle wants to include a Java API for JSON in the Java EE platform. I have circulated the Java API for JSON JSR draft internally in Oracle. If you have any feedback, let me know. I will also reach out to few people(who worked on Java implementations for JSON) to support this JSR. The planned scope for this API is: 
  • Produce and consume JSON text in a streaming fashion(similar to StAX API for XML)
  • Build a Java object model for JSON text using API classes(similar to DOM API for XML
Binding to Java objects(and vice versa) is out of scope for this specification. This may be considered for future revisions of the spec. 

I don't have good acronym(JAX-JSON??, JAXSON ??, JAMJ - Java API for Modelling JSON, ...) for this API, let me know if you have some nice one !!
