What is the proper way to query json and return a value?  Can you please provide an example?

How can I query Employees - find firstname = "Peter" and return "Jones"

{"employees":[
    {"firstName":"John", "lastName":"Doe"},
    {"firstName":"Anna", "lastName":"Smith"},
    {"firstName":"Peter", "lastName":"Jones"}
]}

Hi,
sorry I am currently very limited in time, but the following two tutorials should shade in some lights:

Getting java object from JSON string is as simple as

var employees = angular.fromJson(jsonStr);

As for finding an item in the returned object, and doing it using angularJS,

    angular.forEach(employees, function(value) {
       if(value.firstName == name) this.push(value);
    }, employees);

However, doing it the angular way is to write a filter for that

This should help: http://jsbin.com/cawesiqeqi/1/edit?html,js,output
