Need JSON in Value Format

Avatar

Level 3

Hi All,

 

I have written below JAVA  to get my JSON response from Content Fragment.

 

 

public static JsonArray getMultiValueAsArray(String contentPath, Value[] values, ResourceResolver resourceResolver) throws RepositoryException {
		JsonArray array = new JsonArray();
		if (values != null) {
			for (Value propertyValue : values) {
				JsonParser jsonParser = new JsonParser();
				JsonElement jsonObj = jsonParser.parse(propertyValue.getString());
				logger.info("jsonObj inside getMultiValueAsArray ===== "+jsonObj);
				array.add(jsonDataParser(contentPath, jsonObj, resourceResolver));
			}
		}
		return array;
	}

 

 

And my JSOn is coming below. Here my multifield is storing as STRING [] array , as shown below.

Option-1:

You will have to use a nested JsonObject to get the desired structure.

 

 

    public static JsonArray getMultiValueAsArray(String contentPath, Value[] values, ResourceResolver resourceResolver) throws RepositoryException {
        JsonArray array = new JsonArray();
        if (values != null) {
            for (Value propertyValue : values) {
                JsonObject propertyObj = new JsonObject();
                JsonObject nestedObj = new JsonObject();
                nestedObj.addProperty("value", propertyValue.getString());
                propertyObj.add(propertyValue, nestedObj);
                array.add(nestedObj);
            }
        }
        return array;
    }

 

Here:  

propertyObj is {"byline": {"value", "test2"}} and nestedObj is  {"value", "test2"}

Option-2: Usage of bean classes. Easier to understand and construct structure.

Hi @subnaik 

You should create a POJO class according to the required JSON object and populate value from multifield object to newly created POJO. After that, you can convert the populated POJO class into JSON.

Hi @subnaik ,

 

To be true, the current JSON structure is more promising rather than the new one you want to achieve. It is less in size, more readable and easy to traverse. I would recommend you check the business requirement and try to propose the older one. 

 

Completing task is 'Job done', completing it right way is 'Achievement'.
