Class JSONEventDrivenImporter

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    EventDrivenImporter<java.lang.String,​Triple<java.lang.String,​java.lang.String,​java.lang.Double>>

    public class JSONEventDrivenImporter
    extends BaseEventDrivenImporter<java.lang.String,​Triple<java.lang.String,​java.lang.String,​java.lang.Double>>
    implements EventDrivenImporter<java.lang.String,​Triple<java.lang.String,​java.lang.String,​java.lang.Double>>
    Imports a graph from a JSON file. Below is a small example of a graph in JSON format.
     {
       "nodes": [
         { "id": "1" },
         { "id": "2", "label": "Node 2 label" },
         { "id": "3" }
       ],
       "edges": [
         { "source": "1", "target": "2", "weight": 2.0, "label": "Edge between 1 and 2" },
         { "source": "2", "target": "3", "weight": 3.0, "label": "Edge between 2 and 3" }
       ]
     }
     

    In case the graph is weighted then the importer also reads edge weights. Otherwise the default edge weight is returned. The importer also supports reading additional string attributes such as label or custom user attributes.

    The parser completely ignores elements from the input that are not related to vertices or edges of the graph. Moreover, complicated nested structures which are inside vertices or edges are simply returned as a whole. For example, in the following graph

     {
       "nodes": [
         { "id": "1" },
         { "id": "2" }
       ],
       "edges": [
         { "source": "1", "target": "2", "points": { "x": 1.0, "y": 2.0 } }
       ]
     }
     
    the points attribute of the edge is returned as a string containing {"x":1.0,"y":2.0}. The same is done for arrays or any other arbitrary nested structure.
