Subject [jira] [Closed] (OFBIZ-10966) JSON entity data import and export utility
Date Thu, 27 Jun 2019 11:52:00 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OFBIZ-10966?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Jacques Le Roux closed OFBIZ-10966.
       Resolution: Implemented
         Assignee: Jacques Le Roux  (was: Jayansh Shinde)
    Fix Version/s: Upcoming Branch

Thanks Jayansh,

Your slightly modified patch is in trunk at revision: 1862206  

While testing, I have noticed 2 trivial things I fixed
# The web page title of EntityImportJson was "Web Tools: XML Data Import"
# You added commons-text:1.6 in build.gradle, it's already there

You also added org.json:json:20140107, not the latest version. I understand that this is for
legal reason (license: http://www.apache.org/legal/resolved.html#json), and it's OK

> Currently, we support import/export entity data in XML format.
>  Nowadays JSON is widely used in industry, we can have support for JSON format which
looks quite similar to XML support.
> Here is example of XML data and it's JSON version
> {code:java}
> <Party partyId="123456" partyTypeId="PERSON" statusId="PARTY_ENABLED"/>
> {code}
> {code:java}
> {“Party”: {"partyId":"123456","partyTypeId":"PERSON","statusId":"PARTY_ENABLED”}}
> {code}
> *Design Proposal*
> We can write *entityImportJson* and *entityImportDirJson* services for importing JSON
from screen and directory respectively.
> And the *entityExportAllJson* service for exporting entity data in JSON.
> *Import Design*
>  The import service will perform following operations:
>  1.) Validate the input JSON data (I am in process of exploring the way for this)
>  2.) On successful validation, convert JSON to OFBiz's entity model (GenericValue)
>  3.) The GenericValue will be inserted in database by some handler class for e.g we can
write JsonDataHandler, it will convert given JSON to List<GenericValue>, and finally
write it to database (Similar pattern is used in XML import).
> *Export Design*
>  Based on existing XML pattern the writeXmlText method of GenericEntity class write the
exported data in XML format. 
>  In the similar way, we can implement writeJsonText to export data in JSON format.
> Please free feel to share your thought.
