PLEASE DON'T EVER USE "skip_document_node".

I should never have added that mis-feature.

If you want to skip part of the document, use "document_name" together with the RPG path= option.

Since the IBM version kinda worked you may need to specify an extra option to the YAJL parser.

You haven't shown us your full JSON so I can't be sure but ... there is a bug/feature in IBM's version that allows it to parse JSON that fails with YAJLINTO. On the other hand YAJLINTO handles the more common form of JSON that the IBM version requires code changes to handle.

The usual problem is indeed at the root element and adding the option '{ "skip_document_node": true }' to the YAJL parser will deal with it. Syntax looks like this.

DATA-INTO customer %Data( jsonData: 'case=any')
%parser( 'SKLEMENT/YAJLINTO'
: '{ "skip_document_node": true }');

I just tried Scott's YAJLINTO...
that says I have problems at the root element...

Actually, it was online JSON validator that I said I used.. not a parser.

Sorry about the confusion.

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.

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...

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?

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');
