How to Parse an Array of Objects in C++ Using RapidJson?
Features Of RapidJSON:
- A simple, easy-to-use API for parsing and serializing JSON data
- Support for both SAX (Simple API for XML) and DOM (Document Object Model) parsing styles
- Support for parsing JSON data from strings, streams, and files
- Support for serializing JSON data to strings, streams, and files
- Support for a wide range of basic data types, including numbers, strings, arrays, and objects
- Support for reading and writing JSON data with or without formatting (e.g., indentation and whitespace)
- Support for custom memory allocation and low-level memory manipulation
Installing RapidJSON library:
1. Download the latest version of RapidJSON from GitHub by visiting this link. You can either download the source code as a zip file or clone the repository using Git.
2. Extract the downloaded zip file or navigate to the root directory of the cloned repository.
3. RapidJSON is a header-only library, which means that you don’t need to build it or link it to your project. All you need to do is include the necessary header files in your C++ code. You can find the header files in the included directory of the RapidJSON repository.
4. To use RapidJSON in your C++ project, you need to include the necessary header files. You can do this by adding the following line to your C++ code:
5. If you want to use RapidJSON in multiple files in your project, you can add the include directory of the RapidJSON repository to the include path of your project. This way, you can include the RapidJSON header files in your code using double quotes (“) instead of angle brackets (<>).
Parsing JSON stringified data using RapidJSON library
In the following example, we first define a JSON string and parse it using the Parse() method of the rapidjson::Document class. Then, we check for parse errors using the HasParseError() method. If there are no parse errors, we can access the data in the JSON document using the  operator and the Get*() methods of the rapidjson::Value class (e.g., GetString(), GetInt(), etc.).
Parsing an Array of Objects in C++ Using RapidJson
Let us break down this challenge into the steps mentioned below:
- Define a JSON string containing an array of objects and parse it using the Parse() method of the rapidjson::Document class.
- Check for parse errors using the HasParseError() method. If there are parse errors, handle them accordingly.
- Iterate over the array of objects using the Begin() and End() methods of the rapidjson::Value class.
- For each object, access the data using the  operator and the Get*() methods of the rapidjson::Value class (e.g., GetString(), GetInt(), etc.).
RapidJSON provides many more features and options for parsing and manipulating JSON data. You can find more information and examples in the documentation and examples provided with the RapidJSON library.
