- Apache 2.0 will be fine.

- Supporting different encoding methods is really easy - just check the client's Accept: header (e.g. text/xml or text/json), or a GET/POST parameter (/path/to/app?format=json), or whatever, and pass your data structure to the appropriate module for serialisation (e.g. JSON or XML::Simple) before returning it to the client.

- There's java code on json.org that will do it, otherwise XML::Simple is easy to use on the Perl side.
