JSON Objects in ColdFusion

Posted on 2010-08-16

I have a partner that wants to send my CFC the following Array of Objects using JSON:

    "fullName": "Joe Strummer",
    "phoneNumber" : 2028586745,
    "city" : "Washington, DC"
    "fullName": "Mick Jones",
    "phoneNumber" : 2029768143,
    "city" : "Washington, DC"
    "fullName": "Ian MacKaye",
    "phoneNumber" : 2022675545,
    "city" : "Washington, DC"

What's the best way to get this data into my database? I've read the following article: . It's helpful but it is calling the feed rather than another application calling MY cfc. How do access the data above so I can pass it to the deserializeJSON()?

Thanks for the link. I'm using mySQL. What I need help with is how to access the JSON data sent to my web service in ColdFusion.
