Please do note that a few months ago I tried exactly this and got
terribly lost in the zope publishing machinery, and gave up. I do really
want such a feature for JSON though, and perhaps you can come up with an
approach that makes it work.
Note also that instead of 'MethodViews' I think you should go all the
way, and have a grok.JSON view instead, analogous to grok.XMLRPC. This
would take care of serialization of return values to JSON automatically,
instead of you having to write simplejson.dumps(self.json) in every
If you have other use cases besides JSON for MethodViews, please share
them with us.
