Hi all,

In Apache Sling we have a Feature model, defined using the JSON format, which mixes usage of "string" and "object" array items type, i.e.

  "bundles":[

    "org.osgi:osgi.core:7.0.0",

    {

      "id":"org.osgi:org.osgi.framework:1.9.0",

      "start-level":"20"

    }

  ]


I am now trying to define a JSON schema for modelling the feature model, but got in trouble how to describe such structure in the schema.

Do you have any suggestion, please?
Any hint will be more than appreciated, many thanks in advance!
~Simo

Hi Simone

 

I think you can use the "anyOf" construct for this:

 

"anyOf": [

  { "type": "string" },

  { "type": "object", "properties": { ... } }

]

 

Regards

Felix
