public class: CDL [javadoc | source]
java.lang.Object
   org.json.CDL
This provides static methods to convert comma delimited text into a JSONArray, and to covert a JSONArray into comma delimited text. Comma delimited text is a very popular format for data interchange. It is understood by most database, spreadsheet, and organizer programs.

Each row of text represents a row in a table or a data record. Each row ends with a NEWLINE character. Each row contains one or more values. Values are separated by commas. A value can contain any character except for comma, unless is is wrapped in single quotes or double quotes.

The first row usually contains the names of the columns.

A comma delimited list can be converted into a JSONArray of JSONObjects. The names for the elements in the JSONObjects can be taken from the names in the first row.

Method from org.json.CDL Detail:
 public static JSONArray rowToJSONArray(JSONTokener x) throws JSONException 
    Produce a JSONArray of strings from a row of comma delimited values.
 public static JSONObject rowToJSONObject(JSONArray names,
    JSONTokener x) throws JSONException 
    Produce a JSONObject from a row of comma delimited text, using a parallel JSONArray of strings to provides the names of the elements.
 public static String rowToString(JSONArray ja) 
    Produce a comma delimited text row from a JSONArray. Values containing the comma character will be quoted. Troublesome characters may be removed.
 public static JSONArray toJSONArray(String string) throws JSONException 
    Produce a JSONArray of JSONObjects from a comma delimited text string, using the first row as a source of names.
 public static JSONArray toJSONArray(JSONTokener x) throws JSONException 
    Produce a JSONArray of JSONObjects from a comma delimited text string, using the first row as a source of names.
 public static JSONArray toJSONArray(JSONArray names,
    String string) throws JSONException 
    Produce a JSONArray of JSONObjects from a comma delimited text string using a supplied JSONArray as the source of element names.
 public static JSONArray toJSONArray(JSONArray names,
    JSONTokener x) throws JSONException 
    Produce a JSONArray of JSONObjects from a comma delimited text string using a supplied JSONArray as the source of element names.
 public static String toString(JSONArray ja) throws JSONException 
    Produce a comma delimited text from a JSONArray of JSONObjects. The first row will be a list of names obtained by inspecting the first JSONObject.
 public static String toString(JSONArray names,
    JSONArray ja) throws JSONException 
    Produce a comma delimited text from a JSONArray of JSONObjects using a provided list of names. The list of names is not included in the output.
