> I have created two Processors, EvaluateJsonPath and SplitJson which are analogs of the
functionality provided through EvaluateXPath and SpiltXML.
> Both are powered primarily around the usage of [JsonPath by Jayway|].
> Their capability descriptions are provided below:
> {panel:title= EvaluateJsonPath}
> Evaluates one or more JsonPath expressions against the content of a FlowFile.  The results
of those expressions are assigned to FlowFile Attributes or are written to the content of
the FlowFile itself, depending on configuration of the Processor. JsonPaths are entered by
adding user-defined properties; the name of the property maps to the Attribute Name into which
the result will be placed (if the Destination is flowfile-attribute; otherwise, the property
name is ignored). 
> The value of the property must be a valid JsonPath expression. If the JsonPath evaluates
to a JSON array or JSON object and the Return Type is set to 'scalar' the FlowFile will be
unmodified and will be routed to failure. A Return Type of JSON can return scalar values if
the provided JsonPath evaluates to the specified value and will be routed as a match. If Destination
is 'flowfile-content' and the JsonPath does not evaluate to a defined path, the FlowFile will
be routed to 'unmatched' without having its contents modified. If Destination is flowfile-attribute
and the expression matches nothing, attributes will be created with empty strings as the value,
and the FlowFile will always be routed to 'matched.'
> {panel}
> {panel:title=SplitJson}
> Splits a JSON File into multiple, separate FlowFiles for an array element specified by
a JsonPath expression. Each generated FlowFile is comprised of an element of the specified
array and transferred to relationship 'split, with the original file transferred to the 'original'
relationship. If the specified JsonPath is not found or  does not evaluate to an array element,
the original file is routed to 'failure' and no files are generated.
> {panel}
> One item of note is the transitive dependency of ASM through Json-Smart through JsonPath.
> I have included, what I believe is needed to appropriately make use of this item in the
LICENSE.  Review of its correctness would is requested.
> Any feedback is appreciated.  Thanks!
