A JSONStringer instance provides a
value method for appending values to the text, and a
for adding keys before values in objects. There are
endArray methods that make and bound
array values, and
endObject methods which make and bound object values. All of these
methods return the JSONWriter instance, permitting cascade style. For example,
myString = new JSONStringer().object().key("JSON").value("Hello, World!").endObject().toString();which produces the string
The first method called must be
object. There are no methods for adding commas or colons.
JSONStringer adds them for you. Objects and arrays can be nested up to 20 levels deep.
This can sometimes be easier than using a JSONObject to build a string.
