A month ago I had an incident on production that was caused, as I found out later, by poor performance of used JSON parser library. I’ve optimalized the code and got over it but decided to look for another library with better performance characteristics. I searched for some existing benchmarks as found two of them – one is for JSON manipulation on Android and second is thorough serialization test focused on different use-cases than I have. So I decided to write my on microbenchmark copying the use-case I had on the production.
There are plenty differencies among JSON libraries regarding their features and resulting performance. So if you want to know my findings continue reading here: http://blog.novoj.net/2012/02/05/json-java-parsers-generators-microbenchmark/
