 JSON > JSON LIB > JSON String to Bean

JSON String to Bean 

JSON-lib is a java library for serializing and de-serializing java beans, maps, arrays and collections in JSON format. Get the latest binaries from sourceforge http://json-lib.sourceforge.net/. This requires the libraries ( json-lib-2.4-jdk15.jar, xom-1.2.7.jar, ezmorph.jar commons-lang.jar, commons-collections.jar, commons-beanutils-1.7.jar and commons-logging-1.1.1.jar) to be in classpath. The following example shows converting a JSON String to Bean.

  }

    return age;
  }
  public void setAge(int age) {
    this.age = age;
  }
  public String getHobby() {
    return hobby;
  }

  public void setHobby(String hobby) {
    this.hobby = hobby;
  }
  public Date getDob() {
    return dob;
  }
  public void setDob(Date dob) {
    this.dob = dob;
  }

  public String toString() {
    return "Student[ " +
      "firstName = " + firstName +
      ", lastName = " + lastName +
      ", age = " + age +

package com.bethecoder.tutorials.json_lib.tests;

import net.sf.json.JSONObject;
import net.sf.json.JSONSerializer;

import com.bethecoder.tutorials.json_lib.common.Student;

public class JsonStr2Bean {

  /**
   @param args
   */
  public static void main(String[] args) {
    String jsonStr = "{" 
          "age: 2," +
          "firstName: 'Sriram'," +
          "hobby: 'Singing'," +
          "lastName: 'Kasireddi'" +
        "}";
    
    JSONObject jsonObj = (JSONObjectJSONSerializer.toJSON(jsonStr)//String to JSON
    System.out.println(jsonObj);
    
    Student stud = (StudentJSONObject.toBean(jsonObj, Student.class);  //JSON to BEAN
    System.out.println(stud.toString());
  }

}
   

It gives the following output,
{"age":2,"firstName":"Sriram","hobby":"Singing","lastName":"Kasireddi"}
Student[ firstName = Sriram, lastName = Kasireddi, age = 2, hobby = Singing, dob = null ]


                    Print
