[MarkLogic Dev General] Constructing JSON objects

Hi, Will:

You can use json:object() instead of map:map() for a mutable object where order is important.

I think the API is the same as that of map:map otherwise.

JSON nodes, like XML nodes, are immutable.

Subject: [MarkLogic Dev General] Constructing JSON objects

Is there a nice way to construct a JSON object similar to how maps can be constructed? Typically I would just do it this way:

    map:entry('x', 1),
    map:entry('y', 2)

Except that order is important in this specific scenario, and this ruins ordering.
