Class JSONWriter

java.lang.Object
  extended by org.json.me.JSONWriter
Direct Known Subclasses:
JSONStringer

public class JSONWriter
extends Object

JSONWriter provides a quick and convenient way of producing JSON text. The texts produced strictly conform to JSON syntax rules. No whitespace is added, so the results are ready for transmission or storage. Each instance of JSONWriter can produce one JSON text.

A JSONWriter instance provides a value method for appending values to the text, and a key method for adding keys before values in objects. There are array and endArray methods that make and bound array values, and object and endObject methods which make and bound object values. All of these methods return the JSONWriter instance, permitting a cascade style. For example,

 new JSONWriter(myWriter)
     .object()
         .key("JSON")
         .value("Hello, World!")
     .endObject();
which writes
 {"JSON":"Hello, World!"}

The first method called must be array or object. There are no methods for adding commas or colons. JSONWriter adds them for you. Objects and arrays can be nested up to 20 levels deep.

This can sometimes be easier than using a JSONObject to build a string.

Constructor Detail

JSONWriter

public JSONWriter(Writer w)
Make a fresh JSONWriter. It can be used to build one JSON text.

Since:
BlackBerry API 6.0.0


Method Detail

array

public JSONWriter array()
                 throws JSONException
Begin appending a new array. All values until the balancing endArray will be appended to this array. The endArray method must be called to mark the array's end.

Returns:
this
Throws:
JSONException - If the nesting is too deep, or if the object is started in the wrong place (for example as a key or after the end of the outermost array or object).
Since:
BlackBerry API 6.0.0

endArray

public JSONWriter endArray()
                    throws JSONException
End an array. This method most be called to balance calls to array.

Returns:
this
Throws:
JSONException - If incorrectly nested.
Since:
BlackBerry API 6.0.0

endObject

public JSONWriter endObject()
                     throws JSONException
End an object. This method most be called to balance calls to object.

Returns:
this
Throws:
JSONException - If incorrectly nested.
Since:
BlackBerry API 6.0.0

key

public JSONWriter key(String s)
               throws JSONException
Append a key. The key will be associated with the next value. In an object, every value must be preceded by a key.

Parameters:
s - A key string.
Returns:
this
Throws:
JSONException - If the key is out of place. For example, keys do not belong in arrays or if the key is null.
Since:
BlackBerry API 6.0.0

object

public JSONWriter object()
                  throws JSONException
Begin appending a new object. All keys and values until the balancing endObject will be appended to this object. The endObject method must be called to mark the object's end.

Returns:
this
Throws:
JSONException - If the nesting is too deep, or if the object is started in the wrong place (for example as a key or after the end of the outermost array or object).

                 throws JSONException
Append a long value.

Parameters:
l - A long.
Returns:
this
Throws:
JSONException
Since:
