JSON Question

Convert Json to List Java

I have a JSON array like this :

[
{"_id": {"$oid":"57e9e4b1f36d281c4b330509"}, "user": "edmtdev" },
{"_id": {"$oid":"57e9e4cec2ef164375c4c292"}, "user": "admin1234" },
{"_id": {"$oid":"57ea1b0ac2ef164375c5ff1e"}, "username": "admin34" }
]


This is my
User.class
, used to store all data:

public class User{
private Id id;
private String user;

public Id getId() {
return id;
}

public void setId(Id id) {
this.id = id;
}

public String getUser() {
return user;
}

public void setUser(String user) {
this.user = user;
}
}


And my
Id.class
, used to store the ID:

public class Id {

private String $oid;

public String get$oid() {
return $oid;
}


public void set$oid(String $oid) {
this.$oid = $oid;
}
}


I am using
GSON
in Java to get my users as a
List<User>
:

List<User> users = new ArrayList<User>();
Gson gson = new Gson();
Type listType = new TypeToken<List<User>>(){}.getType();
users = gson.fromJson(s,listType);


The problem is, I get users with username but no ID, $oid is not registered. Can someone help me understanding what does not work in this piece of code ?

Answer

You must replace id in User class by:

private Id _id;

because your json is _id, not id. And your json string at the end is wrong, is user, not username
