RTFM?

but seriously - gogle for ruby JSON - first result gives you ruby JSON
library:

if you have data in JSON do @j = JSON.parse(json_data)
if you want to generate JSON from hash/array - json_data =
JSON.unparse(@hash)

This isn’t allowed in a valid JSON text.

my code :

require ‘D3I.rb’
require ‘json’
status = 0
ic = nil
begin
ic = Ice::initialize(ARGV)
base = ic.stringToProxy(“SessionFactory:tcp -p 10000”)
twoway = D3View::ISessionFactoryPrx::checkedCast(base)
if not twoway
raise “Invalid proxy”
end

session = twoway.CreateSession()
olv = session.LoadObjects("APAL3DB", "AP3Customer")
olvID, iNumRecs = olv.AsJSON(0, 2)

#puts olvID
@j = JSON.parse(olvID)
puts @j
puts '------------------------------------------------------------'

#puts olv.GetID()

rescue Ice::Exception => ex
puts ex
end
exit

In the above code “olvID” variable get JSON data, i want to check iam
getting valid JSON or not, for that i used “@j = JSON.parse(olvID)”, but
i get error :

Don’t know is it error in my JSON data, or in gems

I think this time you understood what actually i am looking for :

  1. I get AsJSON data.
  2. I want to parse JSON data in ruby.

But as Florian said, you JSON data is not valid JSON. That’s why the
Ruby parser won’t parse it.

Thanks Florian.
Thanks James, I found the error in JSON txt.

My last question is there any online website, where i can paste my JSON
data into textarea and i can check from there regarding JSON validation.

Thanks

It’s not a webiste, but you might want to look at this :

If you want to know if it is valid, and you have access to a JS
interpreter (e.g. a web browser) then you could simply eval() it and
see if it compiles or not.

For example, go to:
http://phrogz.net/tmp/simplejs.html

and paste your JSON ‘code’ in, and then hit tab or otherwise defocus
the top pane. If you see valid data in the bottom, the input was
valid. If not, well, it’s not a valid JS object.

~ irb
require ‘json’

begin
@l = File.open($*[0], “r”) { |f| f.readlines }
rescue Exception
puts “could not open file”
end

begin
JSON.unparse(@l)
puts “it’s valid JSON”
rescue Exception
puts “it’s not valid JSON”
end

Chris :

Thanks for your TIP, i liked the link you send to me, but in kwalify, it
validates for YAML file, there it is mentioned that YAML and JSON are
some what similar, & moreover it validates from schema, in my
application i have not written any schema.

I just wanted to check my JSON data is valid or not, either from website
or from command prompt.

Rama
