I am a NodeJS Javascript newbie

Using nodeJS  I have this JSON array that i read in as a recordset from a database.

[{"CaseType":"110","ServiceType":"12","Description":"Traffic Ticket","Reimbursment":60,"CTCategory":"SCF"}]

I need it to be a JSON object
{"CaseType":"110","ServiceType":"12","Description":"Traffic Ticket","Reimbursment":60,"Category":"TFT"}

So I can do this

var obj = JSON.parse(s);

You can parse an array and then just access as obj[0].CaseType for the first element and so on

var rtn = "[{\"CaseType\":\"110\",\"ServiceType\":\"12\",\"Description\":\"Traffic Ticket\",\"Reimbursment\":60,\"CTCategory\":\"SCF\"}]";

var obj = JSON.parse(rtn);


Open in new window


[[object Object] {
  CaseType: "110",
  CTCategory: "SCF",
  Description: "Traffic Ticket",
  Reimbursment: 60,
  ServiceType: "12"

Open in new window
