Data Type Mapping
The GeneXus basic data types are mapped to JSON data types in this way:
Character, VarChar, LongVarChar --> JSON string
Boolean --> JSON Boolean
Numeric --> JSON Number
Collections --> an ordered sequence of values, comma-separated and enclosed in square brackets

The following properties are ignored in the process of serializing an SDT to JSON:
- XML Type
- XML Name
- XML Namespace
