> JSON entity data import and export utility

>                 Key: OFBIZ-10966
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OFBIZ-10966
>             Project: OFBiz
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: framework

>            Priority: Minor

> Currently, we support import/export entity data in XML format.
>  Nowadays JSON is widely used in industry, we can have support for JSON 
> format which looks quite similar to XML support.
> Here is example of XML data and it's JSON version
> {code:java}
> <Party partyId="123456" partyTypeId="PERSON" statusId="PARTY_ENABLED"/>
> {code}
> {code:java}
> {“Party”: 
> {"partyId":"123456","partyTypeId":"PERSON","statusId":"PARTY_ENABLED”}}
> {code}
>  
> *Design Proposal*
> We can write *entityImportJson* and *entityImportDirJson* services for 
> importing JSON from screen and directory respectively.
> And the *entityExportAllJson* service for exporting entity data in JSON.
>  
> *Import Design*
>  The import service will perform following operations:
>  1.) Validate the input JSON data (I am in process of exploring the way for 
> this)
>  2.) On successful validation, convert JSON to OFBiz's entity model 
> (GenericValue)
>  3.) The GenericValue will be inserted in database by some handler class for 
> e.g we can write JsonDataHandler, it will convert given JSON to 
> List<GenericValue>, and finally write it to database (Similar pattern is used 
> in XML import).
>  
> *Export Design*
>  Based on existing XML pattern the writeXmlText method of GenericEntity class 
> write the exported data in XML format. 
>  In the similar way, we can implement writeJsonText to export data in JSON 
> format.
> Please free feel to share your thought.
