JSON

JSON

When you create a Data Processor transformation with JSON input or output, you select a JSON schema or sample file for the transformation. The schema or sample file defines the expected structure of the input or output data hierarchy.
JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) is a hierarchical data-interchange format similar to XML. The JSON format is often used to transmit structured data over a network connection. A Mapper or Serializer uses a JSON input schema or input document in the same way as an XML input schema and input document to define the expected input data hierarchy. A Parser uses a JSON output schema or output document to define the expected output data hierarchy.
When you use the Data Processor transformation wizard to create a transformation with JSON input or output, the transformation can contain a Parser, Mapper, Transformer, or a Serializer associated with the JSON hierarchy. The JSON schema is converted into an .xsd file that defines the hierarchical structure of the JSON file. You can use this .xsd schema with any JSON document that has the same hierarchical format.
