            '   \"querycount\":\"1\",'+
            '   \"ranking\":\"adaptive\",'+
            '   \"mindPage\":{'+                  ----->able to access id, res from mindPage

Apex DeserializeUntyped Map methods:

Map<String, Object> dim = (Map<String, Object>)m.get('mindPage');  //able to get the values of main page
system.debug(' Mind Page Id '+dim.get('id'));
Map<String, Object> properties = (Map<String, Object>)dim.get('properties');   //able to get the values of sub page
system.debug(' Mind Page Id '+properties.get('href'));
Map<String, Object> property = (Map<String, Object>)properties.get('property');   //Error - not able to get the values of second subpage(has array)

Error : System.TypeException: Invalid conversion from runtime type List to Map

Any solution for this?


You will have to use list for arrays in your JSON .Something like below

list<Object> lstproperty = (list<Object>)properties.get('property'); 
//Now loop over this 
for(Object propertyObj:lstproperty){
    Map<String, Object> property = (Map<String, Object>)propertyObj;
