An object of objects is equivalent to nesting data structures. For
example, one data structure has a field that is also a data structure.

You will have to define the maximum. It does not mean 6000 will be
returned as long as you set the length of the returned array using the
"detect length fields" support.

Subject: [WEB400] IWS - JSON allows an object of objects, but does IWS?
Sent by: "WEB400" <web400-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

It occurs to me that I am probably missing a step and needlessly
complicating my life. Hence the question.

I have a learning application where I list the US Presidents, with a
five related stats about them. I made a data structure for these 6
fields, and then an array dim(50), with each president data structure
being an element of the array. Works well. Very pleased. I've expanded

that application and am excited about the results.

Then today I started another project where the number of used elements
of the array will bounce around from 600 to 6000 elements, but generally

in the under 1,000 range. Do I really want dim(6000)? Is there a
better way?

JSON allows an object of objects, but does IWS?
