Where can I find tutorial on creating JSON result form a query


I am back with teamtreehouse :) I am going through the creating a blog reader and making customizations. But I am now needing to create a JSON result page on my website. I need to query my MS SQL Server and with the results create my JSON result page to use in my app. I am having a horrible time trying to find a tutorial that could walk me through this.

If anyone knows of a tutorial somewhere it would be greatly appreciated.

You'll need to write some code in whatever language or framework you are comfortable with to return JSON. Rails has some built in functionality to automatically render out a JSON response for you. PHP also has ways of rendering out JSON. You then just have to set up a URL end point where the JSON can be reached via a web request. Connect to that URL from within your app.
