Loop over deserialized json

When I deserialize this:
{ "json_list": [ { "descr": "Rectangle Cold Finish LBS", "prodline": "0FC", "shape": "BAR", "sig": "ALFC" }, { "descr": "Aluminum Bar LBS", "prodline": "0FE", "shape": "BAR", "sig": "ALFE" } ] }

<cfset cfData = DeserializeJSON(theData)>

I get (I think) a struct (json_list"), and an array of structs with two structs. I need to extract the values for "prodline". How can this be accomplished?

Yes, it's an array of structures. Just loop through the array and extract the "prodline" key within the array:

<cfset cfData = DeserializeJSON(theData)>
<cfset dataArray = cfData.json_list>

<cfloop array="#dataArray#" index="elem">
      <!--- print out value for demo purposes --->
      <cfoutput>
       prodline value = #elem.prodline#  <br>
      </cfoutput>
</cfloop>

What is the record for the fastest correct response? This one has got to be up there.
I've waited longer in line at Mcdonald's.
Thanks for the help.
