bson_json_reader_t — Bulk JSON to BSON conversion

Synopsis

#include <bson.h>

typedef struct _bson_json_reader_t bson_json_reader_t;

typedef enum
{
   BSON_JSON_ERROR_READ_CORRUPT_JS = 1,
   BSON_JSON_ERROR_READ_INVALID_PARAM,
   BSON_JSON_ERROR_READ_CB_FAILURE,
} bson_json_error_code_t;

Description

The bson_json_reader_t structure is used for reading a sequence of JSON documents and transforming them to bson_t documents.

This can often be useful if you want to perform bulk operations that are defined in a file containing JSON documents.

NOTE

bson_json_reader_t works upon JSON documents formatted in MongoDB extended JSON format.
