representation of JSON data with powerful editing features like
automatic type detection, in-cell commands, XQuery filters for modifying
the view, and XQuery formulas for generating additional output from the
JSON data," said Alexander Falk, President and CEO for Altova. "Users
can even generate charts from their JSON data directly in JSON Grid.
