Hi, getting this error while decoding the josn object via post method. surprosingly it works fine when GET method is used. client code:
use Data::Dumper; use JSON; use URI::Escape; use HTTP::Request::Common; use HTTP::Response; use LWP::UserAgent; my $rest_url = "some url"; my $inData = { "name" => "test", "id" => "test", "test" => [1,2,3,4] }; my $json = JSON->new->utf8->allow_nonref; my $jsonData = $json->encode($inData); my $apiCmd = "/projectname/restfulapi?inputdata=$jsonData"; my $iua = LWP::UserAgent->new; #my $response = $iua->request(GET $rest_url.$apiCmd); my $response = $iua->request(POST $rest_url.$apiCmd); if ($response->is_success) { #print Dumper($response->content()); my $perlData = $json->decode($response->content()); print Dumper($perlData); } else{ print " inside falied block\n"; }
api code:
use strict; use Readonly; use CGI; use Data::Dumper; use JSON; #use to get json as input my $q = CGI->new; my $jsonText = $q->param('inputdata'); my $json = JSON->new->utf8->allow_nonref(1); my $outputDataRef = $json->decode($jsonText); print qq{Content-type: application/json; charset=utf8\n\n}; my $outputData = $json->encode($outputDataRef); print $outputData;
It fails at api side while decoding. error details: malformed JSON string, neither array, object, number, string or atom, at character offset 0 (before "(end of string)")
Any help will be greatly appreciated, Thanks.
