Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-9190) Map keys aren't properly serialized as strings in SELECT JSON queries
Date Wed, 13 May 2015 17:02:01 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-9190?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14542237#comment-14542237
] 

Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-9190:
-------------------------------------------

I think we're okay, since we expect people to be using JSON primarily to round-trip through
our own code and secondarily with other JSON libraries.  We don't need to worry too much about
helping people debug bad JSON I think.  Even if it is bad JSON of the kind we generated pre-beta.
:)

+1 from me.

> When I run a SELECT JSON query on a table that contains a column of type map, the JSON
output doesn’t wrap the map keys with quotes, thus creating a non-standard JSON representation,
which doesn’t play along with JSON parsers very well. 
> Here’s an example where the map keys are actually a set:
> {code}
> create table table1 (id int primary key, mymap map<frozen<set<int>>,int>);
> insert into table1 (id,mymap) values (1, {{1,2,3,4}:1});
> select json id,mymap from table1;
> {code}
> The output is:
> {noformat}
> {"id": 1, "mymap": {[1, 2, 3, 4]: 1}}
> {noformat}
> But what I expected was that the map key, in this case the entire integer set, would
be wrapped with quotes.
> The same thing happens when the key is a primitive, such as int, or when it’s another
type of collection.
> I tried this with the latest version of the Cassandra codebase from the repository’s
trunk (1f65a12c33).
