README for Roy Orbjson , the JSON-RPC/Ruby ORB

Orbjson is a JSON-RPC ORB (object request broker) library that allows Web applications to respond to JSON-RPC requests (including, but not limited to, the XmlHttpRequest object), executing Ruby code on the server but sending back JSON-serialized objects to the client.

Client code may then be written that treats all method invocations as local; the jsonrpc.js handles the object serialization for the client, and the ruby-json code handles the json marshaling on the server.

For more API detals, see the docs for Orbjson::System
