Jon,

My comment states "online" JSON parser. I doubt any of the 3 I tried that
show up at the top of Google Search use either Scotts or IBM's. :)

But, I agree, I am sticking with Scott's YAJL parser for a while now.

Which JSON parser are you using? Then IBM supply as a sample with
DATA-INTO or Scott's YAJL-based one?

It looks like you are using IBM's and that has a number of "holes" and is
only really intended as a POC not production ready.

Try it with Scott's and see if you still get the error.

Agreed... it might be a similar issue with handling empty objects

I'd contact IBM for assistance. If you validate {"test":""} with online
JSON validation programs it seems to report it's valid.

ok... this might be a clue...
if I change my blank string to null ex:
before:


{"articles":[{"id":2677,"itemNumber":"12239992","assetId":"","userId":"","vinNumber":"","articleId":2677,"
after:


{"articles":[{"id":2677,"itemNumber":"12239992","assetId":null,"userId":null,"vinNumber":null,"articleId":2677,"

but I don't think the process that creates the JSON can substitute
null for blank...

Have you tried "allowmissing"?

Just curious to see if you still get the error.

I just applied that PTF, recompiled the parser, and then my
program....
same error...
if I put data into those elements, I don't get the error...

Wonder if this is similar/related to the fix for an empty array?

The PTFs for this issue are now available:
7.2 PTF SI68422
7.3 PTF SI68421

it appears that when the parser hits a column that is empty, I
get RNX0358, condition 12...
and by empty I mean, "column-name":"" ...
like "userId":"",

my data-into statement:
DATA-INTO articles %Data( retdata:
'case=any countprefix=count_')
%Parser('GEMLIB/JSONPARSE');
