🏆Gitee Most Valuable Project
🚀A JSON Transmission Protocol and an ORM Library for providing APIs and Documents automatically.




 中文版   Document   Video   Test 

1. About

APIJSON is a JSON based internet communication protocol and an ORM library that largely simplifies the process of back-end API development. It also allows users to get data more quickly with self-defined form and fewer endpoints requests.


For getting data:

You can get any data by defining the specific information you want and send it to the server.
You can get different types of data by making just one request to the server. It's very convenient and flexible, and dosen't require different API endpoints with multiple requests.
It provides CRUD(read and write), Fuzzy Search, Remote Function Calls,etc. You can also save duplicate data, see request history,etc.

For API design:

APIJSON largely reduces API developers' workload by reducing most api design and documentation work.
With APIJSON, client developers will no longer be suffered from possible errors in documents, and it saves communication between server developers and client developers about APIs or documentations .
Server developers no longer need to worry about compatibility of APIs and documents with legacy apps.

2.Server-side deployment

You can use either Eclipse for JavaEE or IntelllJ IDEA Ultimate to make installation. For both, first download the project and save it to a path.

2.1 Installing with Eclipse

2.1.1 prerequisites

Java Development Kit(JDK): 1.8 or above MAVEN: 3.0 or above Mysql / Oracle Eclipse Java EE IDEfor Web Developers.Version: Mars.1 Release (4.5.1)

2.1.2 Opening the project with Eclipse

Open Eclipse> File > Import > Maven > Existing Maven Projects > Next > Browse > Select the path of the project you saved / APIJSON-Java-Server / APIJSONBoot > check pom.xml...apijson-demo > Finish

2.1.3 Preparing the library used in demo

In the menu at the right, click libs, right click apijson-orm.jar,click add as library. Apply the same to the rest .jar files in libs.

2.1.4 Configuration

Open apijson.demo.server.DemoSQLConfig. In line 40-61, change return values of getDBUri,getDBAccount,getDBPassword,getSchema to your own database.

	public String getDBUri() {
		//TODO: Change the return value to your own
		return DATABASE_POSTGRESQL.equalsIgnoreCase(getDatabase()) ? "jdbc:postgresql://localhost:5432/postgres" : "jdbc:mysql://";
	public String getDBAccount() {
    //TODO: Change the return value to your own
		return DATABASE_POSTGRESQL.equalsIgnoreCase(getDatabase()) ? "postgres" : "root";
	public String getDBPassword() {
  	//TODO: Change the return value to your own
		return DATABASE_POSTGRESQL.equalsIgnoreCase(getDatabase()) ? null : "root"; 
	public String getSchema() {
		String s = super.getSchema();
		return StringUtil.isEmpty(s, true) ? "thea" : s; //TODO: Change the return value to your own. For here,change "thea" to "your database's name"

Note: Instead of this step, you can also import your database.

2.1.5 Running the application

In Eclipse, in the menu on the top, click Run>Run As>Java Application>choose APIJSONApplication>OK

2.2 Import MySQL table files

This Server project needs MySQL Server and MySQLWorkbench. Please make sure that both of them are installed.

My config is Windows 7 + MySQL Community Server 5.7.16 + MySQLWorkbench 6.3.7 and OSX EI Capitan + MySQL Community Server 5.7.16 + MySQLWorkbench 6.3.8. Systems and softwares are all 64 bit.

Start MySQLWorkbench > Enter a connection > Click Server menu > Data Import > Select the path of your .sql file > Start Import > Refresh SCHEMAS. Now you should see tables are added successfully.

2.3 Installing with IntellIJ IDEA Ultimate

2.3.1 Opening the project

Open > Select the path of the project/APIJSON-Java-Server/APIJSONBoot > OK

2.3.2 Preparing the library used in demo

In libs, right-click apijson-orm.jar >Add as Library>OK. Apply this to all .jar files in libs.

2.3.3 Running the application

In the menu on the top: Run > Run > Edit Configurations > + > Application > Configuration
In Main class , choose APIJSONApplication;
In Use classpath of module , choose apijson-demo.
Click Run in the bottom.

Note: After running, you should see APIJSON test logs and in the last, it would show ‘APIJSON已启动’. If it shows ‘address already in use’, that means port 8080 has been used . You need tochange the port. See how to change ports for a Spring Boot Application.

3. Client-side deployment

3.1 For Android

Make sure you have either ADT Bundle or Android Studio installed.

My config: Windows 7 + JDK 1.7.0_71 + ADT Bundle 20140702 + Android Studio 2.2 and OSX EI Capitan + (JDK 1.7.0_71 + ADT Bundle 20140702) + (JDK 1.8.0_91 + Android Studio 2.1.2). All the systems and software are 64 bit.

  • 1.Importing
    Open an existing Android Studio project > Select the path of APIJSON-Master/APIJSON-Android/APIJSONApp(or APIJSONTest) > OK

  • 2.Running
    Run > Run app

  • 3.Testing
    In the browser, send a request to the server. It should return with the result. If the default url is not available, change it to an available one, such as an IPV4 address that is running the server of the APIJSON project. Then click the request button again.

3.2 For iOS

Open xCode, then APIJSON-Master/APIJSON-iOS/APIJSON-Swift > Open

In xCode, Product > Run

3.3 For Javascript

You can use either an IDE or text editor like sublime, Atom, etc. Webstorm is recommended.
While using a text editor, you just open the .html file in the APIJSON-JS folder.
You can also open it with Vue javascript framework. Click here to learn more.
