Migrating from v2 to v3

Version 3 is the first significant departure in the zend-json API. In particular, it features the removal of two features to new packages.


The Zend\Json\Server subcomponent was extracted to a new component, zend-json-server. Install it using:

$ composer install zendframework/zend-json-server

All classes and functionality remain the same as in previous versions of zend-json.

XML to JSON support

v2 releases of zend-json provided Zend\Json\Json::fromXml(), which could be used to convert an XML document to JSON. This functionality has been extracted to a new component, zend-xml2json. Install it using:

$ composer install zendframework/zend-xml2json

In order to use the functionality, you will need to modify your calls from Zend\Json\Json::fromXml() to instead use Zend\Xml2Json\Xml2Json::fromXml().
