Json output format issue : [via TidyJSONWriter] in search servlet AEM 6.3


Level 8

Hi All,

We have a custom servlet, to return the list of search results[attributes stored as part of custom page properties ] in json format. For one of the multifield (of pathbrowser's ) field in dialog, value in the crx is saved as

customImage : String[] : {"customImageName":"/content/dam/imageone.jpg"}


But in the json[json section corresponding to that attribute is given below ] that is generated[TidyJSONWriter is used ], it is in the form of

"customimage": [



We are using this json data to populate data on the page[via ajax call to the custom servlet].

Few clarifications :

1] In the crx, the data stored is proper. Shouldn't the json output be in a similar format as stored in the crx?

2] Is it because we are using TidyJSONWriter, the crx values for multifield are outputted in a different format?

3] We are able to access other attribute values, but facing issues reading this attribute value.

4] Any pointers/reference code/snippet on how do we read this properrty value in js and display on the page. Any thoughts on this will be really helpful.

Also, as per Second level multifieldpanel · Issue #380 · Adobe-Consulting-Services/acs-aem-commons · GitHub  using coral multifield should fix the issue. Tried using coral multifield and hit page.infinity.json , but still the same[stored as an encoded string].

Any pointers on this will be helpful.

Looks like the double quotes (which are storted in the repo) are escaped.

  We are using Jackson API for out project Maven Repository: com.fasterxml.jackson  . May be this will help.
