PeopleCode's JsonObject and JsonArray are incredibly important to building a modern PeopleSoft integration, and we teach our students how to leverage them directly. Both have a ToString method that converts the internal object into a String perfect for integration. But the ToString method returns pretty-printed, nicely formatted, human-readable JSON output. This is fantastic for debugging and development! But it wastes valuable bandwidth and disk space with unnecessary characters. Computers ignore those extra spaces. Here is a trick we teach our students to help them reduce their JSON Payloads.
REM ** compress extra space; Local JsonGenerator &jgen = CreateJsonGenerator(); Local JsonNode &root = CreateJsonNode(); Local string &json; &root.SetJsonObject(&someJsonObject); &jgen.SetRootNode(&root); &jgen.SetPrettyMode( False); &json = &jgen.ToString();
