Figure 1. The screen output. {"student":true,"name":"Joe","age":21} {"student":false,"name":"Sue","age":32}{"student":true,"name":"Tom","age":19}

The format for each line of text that you see in Figure 1 is the format that you would expect for a JSON string that doesn't include array data. (See Introducing JSON for more details regarding format.)

Briefly, each key is separated from its value by a colon (:) . Each key/value pair is separated from its neighbors by a comma (,) . The JSON string begins with a left brace ({) and ends with a right brace (}) . Keys are surrounded by double quotation characters. Values may or may not beseparated by double quotation characters, depending on their type. Some characters inside of values, such as double quotation characters and backslashcharacters must be escaped with a backslash character (\" and \\) but that is not shown by this program.

Note that the display order for the key/value pairs shown in Figure 1 does not match the order in which the objects were populated in Listing 2 and Listing 3 . A HashMap does not impose an ordering on its contents and does not guarantee that the ordering will remainconstant over time.

The end of the program

Listing 5 also signals the end of the main method and the end of the program.

Run the program

I encourage you to copy the code from Listing 6 . Execute the code and confirm that you get the same results as those shown in Figure 1 . Experiment with the code, making changes, and observing the results of your changes. Make certain that youcan explain why your changes behave as they do.

Complete program listing

A complete listing of the program named Code.java is provided in Listing 6 .
