JDBC Driver for REST

Build 20.0.7654

JSON Functions

The driver can return JSON structures as column values. The driver enables you to use standard SQL functions to work with these JSON structures. The examples in this section use the following array:

[
     { "grade": "A", "score": 2 },
     { "grade": "A", "score": 6 },
     { "grade": "A", "score": 10 },
     { "grade": "A", "score": 9 },
     { "grade": "B", "score": 14 }
]

JSON_EXTRACT

The JSON_EXTRACT function can extract individual values from a JSON object. The following query returns the values shown below based on the JSON path passed as the second argument to the function:
SELECT Name, JSON_EXTRACT(grades,'[0].grade') AS Grade, JSON_EXTRACT(grades,'[0].score') AS Score FROM Students;

Column NameExample Value
GradeA
Score2

JSON_COUNT

The JSON_COUNT function returns the number of elements in a JSON array within a JSON object. The following query returns the number of elements specified by the JSON path passed as the second argument to the function:
SELECT Name, JSON_COUNT(grades,'[x]') AS NumberOfGrades FROM Students;

Column NameExample Value
NumberOfGrades5

JSON_SUM

The JSON_SUM function returns the sum of the numeric values of a JSON array within a JSON object. The following query returns the total of the values specified by the JSON path passed as the second argument to the function:
SELECT Name, JSON_SUM(score,'[x].score') AS TotalScore FROM Students;

Column NameExample Value
TotalScore 41

JSON_MIN

The JSON_MIN function returns the lowest numeric value of a JSON array within a JSON object. The following query returns the minimum value specified by the JSON path passed as the second argument to the function:
SELECT Name, JSON_MIN(score,'[x].score') AS LowestScore FROM Students;

Column NameExample Value
LowestScore2

JSON_MAX

The JSON_MAX function returns the highest numeric value of a JSON array within a JSON object. The following query returns the maximum value specified by the JSON path passed as the second argument to the function:
SELECT Name, JSON_MAX(score,'[x].score') AS HighestScore FROM Students;

Column NameExample Value
HighestScore14
