How to create Json Array using Streaming Model API?

This page shows how to create Json array object using Streaming API Model.

Note: Refer How to read Json data using JsonReader? page for dependent libraries.

Java example to create json array object using generator:

package com.javaapi.json.examples;


import javax.json.Json;

public class CreateJsonObjGenEx {

	public static void main(String a[]){
		StringWriter strWtr = new StringWriter();
		JsonGenerator jsonGen = Json.createGenerator(strWtr);
		JsonGenerator start = jsonGen.writeStartObject();
		start.write("emp_name", "Nataraj G");
		start.write("emp_id", 1016);
		start.write("salary", 20000);
		// create Json array with only values
		JsonGenerator plnArrGen = start.writeStartArray("direct_contacts");
		// create an array of key-value pairs
		JsonGenerator kvArrGen = start.writeStartArray("contacts");
		// create each key-value pair as seperate object and add it to the array
		kvArrGen.writeStartObject().write("email", "[email protected]").writeEnd();
		kvArrGen.writeStartObject().write("mobile", "123123123123").writeEnd();

    "emp_name": "Nataraj G",
    "emp_id": 1016,
    "salary": 20000,
    "direct_contacts": [
    "contacts": [
            "email": "[email protected]"
            "mobile": "123123123123"

Domain Naming Service(DNS)
It is very difficult to remember a set of numbers (IP address) to connect to the Internet. The Domain Naming Service(DNS) is used to overcome this problem. It maps one particular IP address to a string of characters. For example, implies com is the domain name reserved for US commercial sites, java2novice is the name of the company and www is the name of the specific computer, which is java2novice's server.
