Subject [jira] [Created] (WW-4176) Send Map with Strings as Key to JSON Action is ignored, Numeric Keys will work and mapped
Date Wed, 14 Aug 2013 12:23:47 GMT
Stefan Abendroth created WW-4176:

             Summary: Send Map with Strings as Key to JSON Action is ignored, Numeric Keys
will work and mapped
                 Key: WW-4176
             Project: Struts 2
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Plugin - JSON
    Affects Versions:
         Environment: Tomcat6, Struts,JSON Plugin,jquery
            Reporter: Stefan Abendroth

Sending Map from javascript/jsp to JSON Action, when the Keys are numeric everything works,
when the keys are Strings then these entries are thrown away while the mapping process in
the JSON Action takes place.
Important note: If i create a map in the JSON Action and send it to the client everything
is ok.

alert which shows the Server generated JSON:

If i look into the sended data from javascript side in Eclipse i see in debug mode:
this=>myJSONMap:{2=[Ljava.lang.String;@3caf7a1f, 23=[Ljava.lang.String;@247aa859}

Alert shows on client side:

Hope it's clear where the problem is. Bug or misunderstood anything?
Would like to have a List of keys,values where the keys can be String/Long/Int and the values
can be String/Long/int.

The direction Server generated Map=>JSON is ok, sending the same from client side will
lose the entries with a String key.

Here is a part of my code:

<form action="" id="testForm1">
testForm1<input type="submit"/>
event.preventDefault(); //Cancel the default action (navigation) of the click.
var data={"1":"1","2":"ANOTHERVALUE","ANOTHERKEY":"1","KEY":"VALUE"};
var sentData={};
$.getJSON("<s:url namespace="/ajax" action="testMap"/>", sentData ,function(data3) {
alert("Server generated JSON"+JSON.stringify(data3.mymap));
alert("Client generated JSON"+JSON.stringify(data3.myJSONMap));
JSON Action config:
<package name="PIM_JSONDataPackage" namespace="/ajax" extends="struts-default,json-default">
<action name="testMap" method="testMap" class="eu.mtd.actions.JSON_DropDownPropertyValuesAction">
<result type="json" />
<param name="noCache">true</param>
JSON Action
public class JSON_DropDownPropertyValuesAction extends ActionSupport{
	private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;
	private Map session;
	private Map mymap = new HashMap();
	private Map myJSONMap = new HashMap();
public JSON_DropDownPropertyValuesAction(){}
	public String testMap(){
		mymap.put("KEY", "VALUE");
		mymap.put("1", "1");
		mymap.put("ANOTHERKEY", "1");
		mymap.put("2", "ANOTHERVALUE");
		//Creates JSON: {"1":"1","2":"ANOTHERVALUE","ANOTHERKEY":"1","KEY":"VALUE"}
		return SUCCESS;
public String execute() {
        return SUCCESS;

	public Map getMymap() {
		return mymap;

	public void setMymap(Map mymap) {
		this.mymap = mymap;
	public Map getMyJSONMap() {
		return myJSONMap;
	public void setMyJSONMap(Map myJSONMap) {
		this.myJSONMap = myJSONMap;
	public Map getSession() {
		return session;

	public void setSession(Map session) {
		this.session = session;
