JSON UDFs: is it hard to type keys?
+4 Vote Up -0 Vote Down

Currently, if you want to search a key using JSON UDFs you have to specify each its part as a separate argument to the function: JSON_CONTAINS_KEY(doc, 'root', 'child', 'child of child', 'child of child of child', etc.....). This way of working with parameters is easy for developer, less error-prone, but can be not very beautiful.

I was suggested by some of users to change it to '/parent/child/child-of-child/...' or to 'parent:child:child-of-child:...' There are, probably, can be other suggestions. What do you like the best? How do you feel about current style with separate argument for each key element? Should we change or extend this syntax?
