Subject Better support for JSON gfsh results
Date Tue, 01 May 2018 22:41:49 GMT
Hi All,

I'm working on removing our dependency on geode-json (org.json) in favor of
Jackson. Initially this work has revolved around refactoring the internal
results from gfsh commands (nothing that is user-visible).

I'm now looking at the various gfsh 'data' commands (get, put, query and
locate) and would very much like them to produce more meaningful, (actual
JSON), structured results.

For example, a get on a region containing a simple 'User' object produces
this output.

Result      : true
Key Class   : java.lang.String
Key         : jondoe
Value Class :

This is not very helpful and only really shows that the value, for the
given key, actually exists.

Querying a PDX object is more informative:

Result      : true
Key Class   : java.lang.String
Key         : jondoe
Value Class : org.apache.geode.pdx.internal.PdxInstanceImpl

username | hashcode
-------- | --------
jondoe   | 38de41a9

This brings me to the actual question. Although our Java API is backwards
compatible, the gfsh output has never been considered an 'API' in terms of
the structure of it's output text. However, I do want to ask that if we
start making changes to these commands, to produce actual JSON results,
will that cause anyone any pain?

Thoughts / comments?
