JSON Binding: Google Geocode Example

This example will demonstrate mapping a single object model to both XML and JSON using the same set of metadata. Google Maps Geocoding API V2 will be used to provide the XML and JSON inputs for this example.

XML Input

Below is the link we will use to get the data as XML. This is specified in the output parameter. Note the output=xml in the URL:

http://maps.google.com/maps/geo?q=1600+Amphitheatre+Parkway,+Mountain+View,+CA&output=xml&sensor=false&key=YOUR_KEY_HERE

XML Result

Below is an example of the XML returned from Google Maps:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<kml xmlns="http://earth.google.com/kml/2.0">
 <Response>
  <name>1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA</name>
  <Status>
   <code>200</code>
   <request>geocode</request>
  </Status>
  <Placemark id="p1">
   <address>1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA
   </address>
   <AddressDetails Accuracy="8"
    xmlns="urn:oasis:names:tc:ciq:xsdschema:xAL:2.0">

   </Point>
  </Placemark>

JSON Input

JSON Input

Below is the link we will use to get the data as JSON. This is specified in the output parameter. Note the output=json in the URL:

http://maps.google.com/maps/geo?q=1600+Amphitheatre+Parkway,+Mountain+View,+CA&output=json&sensor=false&key=YOUR_KEY_HERE
