JSON Structure for the Definition System

One can either use the provided interfaces in TypeScript or a JSON representation of the definition system that can be generated by running either the complete build or npm run generateJSON.

Please bear in mind that the definition system is a full reflection of the RAML specification and must not contain anything that is not mentioned inside the specification.
