Running a mapping with JSON data

Running a mapping with JSON data

To run a mapping that contains a Hierarchy Processor transformation with JSON-formatted data, you need to use a mapping task.

Reading JSON input

When you read JSON data, the input files can be based on a schema with multiple lines or on a schema with a single line.
The following sample shows a JSON schema on a single line:
{"Name":"Tom","Street":"2100 Seaport Blvd","City":"Redwood City","State":"CA","Country":"USA","Zip":"94063"}
The following sample shows a JSON schema that spans across multiple lines:
{ "Name": "Tom", "Surname": "Day", "City": "Redwood City", "State": "CA", "Country": "USA", "Zip": "94063" }
By default, the Hierarchy Processor transformation reads each JSON schema as a single line. To read input that spans across multiple lines, you can configure the formatting options in the Source transformation to read multiple-line JSON files.

Writing JSON output

When you write JSON data, you can write each output record to a separate file, or you can write all output records to one file.
By default, each output record is written to a separate file. To write the output records to one JSON-formatted file, set the following Spark session property in the mapping task:
Session Property Name
Session Property Value
