Following example is using ObjectMapper class to parse a JSON char array to a Map Object.

import java.util.Map;
import org.boon.json.JsonFactory;
import org.boon.json.ObjectMapper;

public class BoonTester {
   public static void main(String args[]){
      ObjectMapper mapper = JsonFactory.create();
      String jsonString = "{\"name\":\"Mahesh\", \"age\":21}";
      char[] jsonCharAray = jsonString.toCharArray();
      Map studentMap = mapper.readValue(jsonCharAray, Map.class);
      System.out.println("Name: " + studentMap.get("name"));
      System.out.println("Age: " + studentMap.get("age"));


You will see the following output −
