Yes, I will use JSON in my project also, it seems much better and 
easier, I was just testing both. XML is a lot of overhead and bloat in 
any project both development, execution and data-size-wise.

I did some testing on the exception catching, but if I intentionally do 
something nasty within my Except/End part, FCL-Web replies with a web 
page ("Module error", or something similar), and not a JSON reply so 
ExtJS cannot process the response.
