I am trying to run this code, I am getting this error in Apex Salesforce Console

*|FATAL_ERROR|System.JSONException: Illegal value for primitive*

public class content {
        public String MTType;
        public String MTTitle;
        public List<String> body;
    }
    // JSON string that contains a content object.
    String JSONContent =
        '{"content":{'+
          '"MTType":"text/html",'+
          '"MTTitle":"Test Builder",'+
          '"body":['+
             '" <div id=\"section_1\" class=\"mt-page-section\"><span id=\"Overview\"></span><h2 class=\"editable\">Overview</h2></div>",'+
             '{'+
              '  "@target":"toc",'+
              '  "#text":"<ol style=\"list-style-type:none; margin-left:0px; padding-left:0px;\"><li><span>1.</span> <a href=\"#Overview\" rel=\"internal\">Overview</a></li><li><span>2.</span> <a href=\"#Building_an_Objective-Based_Test\" rel=\"internal\">Building an Objective-Based Test</a><ol style=\"list-style-type:none; margin-left:0px; padding-left:15px;\"><li><span>2.1.</span> <a href=\"#What_are_Learning_Paths.3F\" rel=\"internal\">What are Learning Paths?</a></li></ol></li></ol>"'+
             '}'+
          ']'+
       '}'+
    '}';

JSONParser parser = 
   JSON.createParser(JSONContent);
// Make calls to nextToken() 
// to point to the second
// start object marker.
parser.nextToken();
parser.nextToken();
parser.nextToken();
// Retrieve the Person object
// from the JSON string.
content obj = 
   (content)parser.readValueAs(
      content.class);
System.Debug(obj.body[0]);
parser.skipChildren();  

I have tested the validity of JSON String here at

Here I am pasting JSON String Again

Odyssey will create a learning path based on objective&#8208;based tests. Learning paths based on customized objectives must be created manually.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> Also, a teacher may administer an exit exam as part of an Odyssey high school course. Alternatively, in schools that have purchased support for Odyssey&rsquo;s Test Translator, the test is administered outside of Odyssey Manager. Administrators use Test Translator to import test results into Odyssey Manager and a learning path is automatically created based on the results of the NWEA or state test.&nbsp;</p></div></div>",

Can anybody please advice, what am I doing wrong here ?

Here is the content class

public class content {
        public String MTType;
        public String MTTitle;
        public List<String> body;
    }

In here, I want to ignore the child of body, we only want to show the body on the Visualforce page, by ignoring the child, i therefore had used Salesforce method called

parser.skipChildren();  
  • Can you provide the code for the 'content' class please. I think i see whats wrong and how to shorten your Apex code. But need to see your content class before I answer. – Andrew Fawcett Jul 3 '13 at 21:21
  • public class content { public String MTType; public String MTTitle; public List<String> body; } – Harshit Pandey Jul 3 '13 at 22:02
  • I have added the content class here in the question itself – Harshit Pandey Jul 3 '13 at 22:04
  • Why don't you try with "deserialize" methods? – Vignex Jul 4 '13 at 6:43

The problem seems to be your body is String array

public List<String> body;

But you second object in json is an object.

{
        "@target":"toc",
...

Add a 4th object to your content class and it should be ok.

public class content {
    public String MTType;
    public String MTTitle;
    public List<String> body;
    public TargetText targetText;
}

public class TargetText{
    String target;
    String text;
}

And the json would be something like this

"content":{
...
body : ["...."],
   targetText:{
   target:"..."
   text:"..."
   }
}
  • Thanks for reply Moti, I want to ignore the child, as my objective is to display body on the visualforce page, we don't care of the child at the moment, there if you carefully read the code again I try to skip children using Salesforce Method parser.skipChildren(); – Harshit Pandey Jul 4 '13 at 16:58
  • I suppose the error happens at readvalueas() so either don't use it or change content class structure – Moti Korets Jul 5 '13 at 6:12
