Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-12760) SELECT JSON "firstName" FROM ... results in {"\"firstName\"": "Bill"}
Date Fri, 07 Oct 2016 10:02:20 GMT
Niek Bartholomeus created CASSANDRA-12760:

             Summary: SELECT JSON "firstName" FROM ... results in {"\"firstName\"": "Bill"}
                 Key: CASSANDRA-12760
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Core
         Environment: Cassandra 3.7
            Reporter: Niek Bartholomeus

I'm using Cassandra to store data coming from Spark and intended for being consumed by a javascript
front end.

To avoid unnecessary field name mappings I have decided to use mixed case fields in Cassandra.
I also happily leave it to Cassandra to jsonify the data (using SELECT JSON ...) so my scala/play
web server can send the results from Cassandra straight through to the front end.

I noticed however that all mixed case fields (that were created with quotes as Cassandra demands)
end up having a double set of quotes

create table user(id text PRIMARY KEY, "firstName" text);
insert into user(id, "firstName") values ('b', 'Bill');
select json * from user;

 {"id": "b", "\"firstName\"": "Bill"}

Ideally that would be:
 {"id": "b", "firstName": "Bill"}

I worked around it for now by removing all "\""'s before sending the josn to the front end.
