Hi All,

I am having a JSON which is loosely typed and also the structure or datatype of one element /id depends on value of another id. Below is the schema of JSON

"content": [
"id": "string",
"label": "string",
"type": "BOOLEAN",
"actions": {
"configuration": {
"url": "string",
"method": "GET"


I have defined the qualifiers on label in order to map this JSON to XML. But issue is that based on "type" element the "value" element can be string or an object.


for example if type is "text" than value is string (as shown above) but if type is "Currency" the value tag is object as below


"value": {
"code": "USD",
"value": 2000


When trying to parse this JSON i am getting below error:

[Input ProfileLocation: Root/Object/content/Array/ArrayElement1/Object/value; DocumentLocation: /Root/Object/content/Array/ArrayElement1[6]/Object/value]: Expected simple value, found START_OBJECT


How can we parse such json? Any inputs will be useful , TIA.
