 Title: JSONYA/FN: Functional Computation in JSON Authors: Sredkov, Miloslav Keywords: JSONData ModelsFunctional ProgrammingIntermediate LanguagesInteroperability Issue Date: 2013 Publisher: Institute of Mathematics and Informatics Bulgarian Academy of Sciences Citation: Serdica Journal of Computing, Vol. 7, No 1, (2013), 35p-72p Abstract: Functional programming has a lot to offer to the developers of global Internet-centric applications, but is often applicable only to a small part of the system or requires major architectural changes. The data model used for functional computation is often simply considered a consequence of the chosen programming style, although inappropriate choice of such model can make integration with imperative parts much harder. In this paper we do the opposite: we start from a data model based on JSON and then derive the functional approach from it. We outline the identified principles and present Jsonya/fn — a low-level functional language that is defined in and operates with the selected data model. We use several Jsonya/fn implementations and the architecture of a recently developed application to show that our approach can improve interoperability and can achieve additional reuse of representations and operations at relatively low cost.
