How to exchange data between Objective-C and PHP


I am playing around with Objective-C and have been looking for a good how-to example to exchange data it and PHP. JSON? SOAP? If anyone knows of a well written example I could hack at, I would appreciate it.




When you say exchange data, do you mean over a network connection, between programs or through files?

If you are look to transfer the data over an internet connection (eg. your Objective-C program has/is a web server) then I would personally use JSON as this would allow your Objective-C program to communicate with a javascript web app in future if required as well as the simple php json_encode / json_decode functions.

I would personally say the same applies to other systems, but depending on how you expect this to work something like xml or SOAP may work better.
