在查看DHC Assertions 模块说明的时候,无意间发现assert模块中JsonBody使用了 JSON Path ,兴趣使然,看了下,发现是类似解析xml用到的 XPath。通过路径来获取json对象的属性值

JSON Path提供了javascript与PHP版本


JSON Path表达式:.store.book[0].title 或则 x['store']['book'][0]['title']

同时,官网也有提到,像javascript、Python、PHP等语言已经提供了类似JSON Path的能力了。

另外,JSON Path存在以下问题

  • be naturally based on those language characteristics.
  • cover only essential parts of XPath 1.0.
  • be lightweight in code size and memory consumption.
  • be runtime efficient.




using the symbol '@' for the current object. Filter expressions are supported via the syntax ?(<boolean expr>) as in

$.store.book[?(@.price < 10)].title


XPath JSONPath Description
/ $ the root object/element
. @ the current object/element
/ . or [] child operator
.. n/a parent operator
// .. recursive descent. JSONPath borrows this syntax from E4X.
* * wildcard. All objects/elements regardless their names.
@ n/a attribute access. JSON structures don't have attributes.
[] [] subscript operator. XPath uses it to iterate over element collections and for predicates. In Javascript and JSON it is the native array operator.
| [,] Union operator in XPath results in a combination of node sets. JSONPath allows alternate names or array indices as a set.
n/a [start:end:step] array slice operator borrowed from ES4.
[] ?() applies a filter (script) expression.
n/a () script expression, using the underlying script engine.
() n/a grouping in Xpath

 题外话:在了解JSON Path的时候,还发现了解析JSON的其他框架
