Subject Area
We'll cover the new Json generation functions, as well as jsonb, and when to use json, jsonb or hstore. We'll end by looking into the future to see what other json functionality might be coming, such as json mutation functions. The talk will present a survey of the current and coming state of json features, as well as a speculative look at what which be in the future beyond 9.4 Overview: * the new json generation functions, such as jsonbuildobject and jsonbuildarray and how they can be used to build up arbitrarily complex and non-rectangular json. * json typeof() * jsonb, and its relation to json and nested hstore. * how jsonb is different from json, (e.g. object field ordering, treatment of duplicate field names and whitespace) * performance differences between json and jsonb * what's missing from json/jsonb? What should we work on for 9.5? Mutation functions have been suggested, Are there others?

right so welcome everybody on how many of you would not at yesterday's talk by a latent along with that and that and their handful let's good because they talk about a lot of what I was going to talk about and so what we did this talk a bit of money and gentle that by the sum of and that if you want the full story about what's really really really sexy in 9 for days on end semester after that provide government because it's kind gonna rock itself and is turned down OK so 1 of the 1 2 3 1 2 3 4 0 OK but that so I'm basically what I'm going to do is I'm going to review fairly quickly the from the history of of states on you you get a bit of an idea of where we're coming from and then go through some of the features of all are there in 9 . 4 and but I'm not going to cover too much of the stuff about indexing because that was already covered by by a Russian friend says basically
we've got there this is pretty much there are a synopsis of the told and so days on does anybody have any people don't know what days on unusual have a reasonable understanding pretty much everybody does OK so it's not like we standardized everybody's using it's it's the it's the it's the flavored usually it's pretty much pushing XML and in the backwaters
it looks kind of like this end you only have these types of notifications that time types and they're being proposals to extend the UML but at the moment we are sticking with the actual for the for JavaScript that standards that over on the previous slide 1 to note about this is that it's not it doesn't look like a database table or even a bunch tables you look at very irregular and that's all that's a frequent characteristic all day based long and some of the facilities that would provided in 9 . 4 a guide to help you to construct a regular J. song from that regular database table because that's what the clients all somewhat but
get so why is it well everybody is everybody is used to work on and just kind works why not use well
there are from the outside the downsides of that but it's a bit verbose field lines are often repeated and so you get it it's not as not as compressed as it might be it's not terribly suitable for a huge objects and it's not quite talk rich enough some people prefer gamma because users lists quite on I think that's about all it has been lost on the
concept of someone up to we didn't have anything and Robert who's just walked in and pick up a fossil said we're not going to die yet another released so just before so not to pretty much presence of features the quickly cannot with body useful implementation of the Dayton part with a knife validating parser ends and this is Brooke this is what it was like and it was an around some staff to
turn on Monday slammed in with these 2 functions and that's that's what we have going into mind up there was up and that was before that all 4 of quot along and a it's a series of developments so
what is missing where all unlawful and the there there were already had these features for producing diphone out of the database that will really quite on the quite rudimentary and not really a sufficient amount there was no processing of dates unknown away also expect the data from day song now of modifying text on there and so you had to use things like the over all operational something to do that work so this is really just the beginning but that's pretty characteristic of post this development of post but it it we tend to do stuff incrementally
7 9 that's really because some things that 1st we we had some stuff to produce that don't make producing very based on each year we can you can pass anything you like any data model to 2 days on and it will turn it into days on for years and you can also add an event records is based on said that if so basically give you an arrival of diphone objects and much faster than using the uh rather ugly expression that we had to use a 9 . 2 it we supported
casts that today some of which we hadn't done before and certainly things like 8 storing the destined to look pretty ugly 1 of the things that are people recently raised with me about that is that I made a decision rightly or wrongly not to look up possible things on the basis of which the knew had been built in in the in the days already in this sense is looking at the the uh the cast in the common part but the question that's been raised is is it wise all necessary I study all that much I actually don't know the answer to that 1 can replace this is where you actually want if sitting the day song to a JavaScript processor it once they time value to be analyzed very 601 format and an output is because it's missing the T between the part and the time spent on the fact that the worker and that is used to each other that coming it's ugly said to them I'm I'm I'm I'm thinking of sending it and I think we should actually got that that behaviour and simply look up to see if there is a path old time OK so but we
provided some past side still which was the particular case again people I 90 to a couple of different things which uh we had and 1 which is a heuristic because of course they still values such as strings and 1 which which is a which always uses strings the cost is with the with a strict when I still today so that the
1 thing we did a book that was to rewrite the power that use a recursive descent patterns and rules there is that we can actually tagging event handlers which means that we can write a whole lot of functions that could plug into the parser user without having to reimplement particle time got works like an external effect the ion where actually managed to keep it extremely fast effect with the positive extremely was faster than the 1 we had in mind up to after some optimization and I don't even know had these extra facilities and we use that extensively as 9 . 4 and we then added
a harbinger of processing functions and we can get run through extremely quickly and they can and which basically expected values and give you information about the about said Song cellular here his kind of what they
look like you got this operator here that is the defectors of a single value and or you can
search and around the object members text with the with the extra arrow and all
you can fit a whole pile
that there are also functions do similar things
and so that we can uh we don't say 10 days on into records allowed extort were record sets the that still does not support the
care and we contend that isn't a key value pairs that that all of those functions use that parser API that I was talking about the old supply looks to go into the past so all wealth and power as with exactly the same as uh retreat because we
can get the keys we can do a get the elements from the
right there's an example here all of which I constructed last year old data and 512 it's not the 1 that we've implemented in any corner and uphold will get to 2nd not nearly as efficient but it is and a very simple example also have to use the 903 API and there are lots and lots and lots and lots of examples in investment thanks the in the in the causal scale if you want to construct some extensions again so that was that was his
903 3 while efficiency that the that's really the big thing is and all those functions that I just showed you really power as the days on so we sort of based on his text that's fast but we've if we have to really positive and repository powder over and over again that's that's very inefficient as well some richer querying which we've gotten wonderful come to in the 2nd and we don't canonicalize the Jason role roles that means for instance that if you have a the 2 objects which is semantically equivalent but with the result that Rho reversed they went in this we don't normalize that that space which is in which is semantically insignificant is not desirable Why duplicate keys not dissolved away so there's a bunch of things that we don't do that we actually need and there was no basically no predictive we also need some rich utilities for building up of a Kryptonian Monday song in on and finally big thing we need and this is this is kind of the the big thing that's left only agenda is support for operations to all song site to delayed Acadia value to add some uh something in the middle of to all someone because they said was what we got in on in 9 . 4 we got some new data on creation functions within a look at it from the file in a 2nd we got similar you take a couple of utility functions and the big thing we got whereas the does somebody type which basically as a bunch of all efficient operations or certainly more efficient than the operations that we had in mind 3 and it's indexable and it has a canonical form yeah because the way that support we provide a couple of classes for due to the fact that gene indexes on Jason Davies now and no not quite is it says this stuff coming from that that is gonna make things a lot easier to the values from the back down into the day song that is well it in and it gives you it will you'll see of the get better and its canonical as say that plays an idea in the days data stored in a NASA determinable outward at no matter what order they're even when they come in the each key appears only once and the last 1 in women's and analyze places the salt away so there is a canonical format and most most importantly we do not have to really power as the days on to to to run these operations so you if we had now Dixon support that began operations that I showed you before on Jason be I'm not much much faster like of the order of 100 times faster but they
said was a here are some of the other than the the utility things we've got this thing where you can add to a set of key value pairs into on object so it let's say you have a cities in the fields of 9 population you can produce a day's object that is that is got all advantage in a and B and they just on egg is so you can't you can't actually do this with cheese and a decimated Italy yet again the reason for this
is that all of these things actually come from on some work i did for the past but expert clients and produces extensions so they're actually of available for 9 . 3 the reason we're broke the mean is of that is that in order to implement them which they had to use large copy large parts of the International Day song carried in order to implement and that's what we really want know either took the tonight that maintainable we would have had to expand those pieces of the the API for that which I didn't really want to do all I had to bring the means that it could use them without exposing the IPO so the city's basically let you have the 1st 2 things about the in the core of this of this facility which will let you build up arbitrary J. songs and you can pass any all the arguments to these things and I will turn that into an object on a build object will take the the values pairwise this to say will consider the first one to big k the 2nd 1 to be evaluated and the next 1 to be a it's 1 of their value and sell on and go around it would just take taken the element wise and if these are the ones that are very similar to the facility for turning takes raise in 2 days on news that will experience into chess object that when we were training data and that none of these actually only return on the problem reasons for that 1st it but the the main 1 is that we see is that by the time I got that in and then we had day from being in state ready to be able to implement that and representations of the furnace kind were made to me that I should stop doing any more work has orbitals that doesn't be would not be acceptable whole perhaps hands and said so variability around is it you can send class that today Sunday but it's really and these are principally intended for things that you would return to apply time you could you could then you could you could certainly had turned into days on and stored in the database and yes I think well I don't know yes I think there is bad yet so you don't but uh I'm not sure implicit that there is there is a cast that and yet you could sit there at the moment these functions desperate updates on if you want dates and the you can you can after today so and so it will have provided that that said that if that is true maybe we can you know maybe that's something we can look at doing in i and k in 9 . 5 years the of this this is what are you going to do with yeah I would not a Laplacian you know basically there was fault and so ideas and you know we were it all as as as databases we were lucky to get he said on that was that was not primary goal and well now because turning doesn't being the and cost freer it's not reparsing but it's actually having to produce a string and sexual and and iterate over the days the structure of possibly or yeah I hope and right so his
head is kind of how they work on that at least some simple examples so you can just basically path in any bandwagon notice that there's no we've got a number and volume that it it it doesn't they don't have to be a regular a toll on his adjacent object thing it can take a s a one-dimensional array in which case the elements have taken as key-value pairs or can take a k dimensional array in which case the inner dimensions that the value and of the inner dimension must be to all I can take arrays of keys and that all those queries produced this result again that was pretty much but that's pretty much the way think it within a and this and this was that was the inspiration for this set the decimal objective function again said it was a much more
complex example of how we're going to build up a piece of days there where we've got here and then we've got an an array would be falsely in 1990 and then mixing who got d and an object which has got an indicator and an array and another q f and uh was uh and today some of i which is a record from from a query that important point to note about this is that would just some values using these functions just some values it pops and get problem day somebody that is for that matter does get passed through there and we know don't basically we did it in the present day so we just we just take a spring in their yesterday somebody we produce days on string and stick it in there and we don't do any further quoting so that means you can actually use these functions recursively with each other and produce validates on the and with it does more or less what you expect and again another key of G and air and this time we've got would produce an object with with with object and we and we reduce this extremely irregular they suggest some down what their can everybody say that 1 so given that you can pretty much construct day song in any shape you like and we've got a couple classes to prove that using this and it's it's this this features as pretty much enable their adjacent driven website to the next uh
functions that anything we haven't some type of sometimes based days on and if you need to know what type of data for you think it is I have a common case where you need this is if you want past the value to something for instance you want if you wanna make sure that it's a number before you cast to a numeric because I if you tried having something else to a numeric again a get an exception so you can do a case study using datatype type all of and it's pretty efficient it basically just calls the lexical retained gets the 1st element and the the rest away and it's about the results verify that that was written by an and detector and it's it's kind of useful and much better than that of the standard is here that we've got to know that the credit mammal is a day from now and that's because a better model is actually being literal while it actually validation if you pass in a knowledge based on items argument this SQL novel then you'll get back in a film out because it's because it's strict functions so that the difference between these 2 things that can
a and then the last thing is the case in the town and adjacent the tagged as it uses the 9 . 3 pardon routines and it's it's a very slightly stricter then the 923 parsing because in 9 point 3 volts than the present-day sometime in 9 because we basically decided we were going to check the validity of certain unique effects in an index and that's the only thing that that gets through for days on that doesn't get through 4 days on the unique apart from that there the fact that we use digital questions that is not the fact that we using the same retains was actually kind of important to me and I have an an I I want to be very certain that we were going to have these 2 types using the same parsing routines said that they we could not get the you know what they would accept out of state said that the representation if it goes through and and uh construct a binary object which closely mirrors the video that has the actual dates on syntax that you have you guys have no around is over it will say his neuroscience it's got this measurements and then it'll it'll you'll have a sequence of elements these inside and that in turn can be objects or or what have you so it's is very much like the day something that but the thing is that of course we're not actually reading it character-by-character any longer in the and the parsing is actually pretty fast I only showed that I think that it was running at about 140 % or what was passed few Jason on his delicious bookmarks things not that's not surprising because the parsing for days on you basically doesn't use any of the hoax of all it does is it runs through the positive and if it gets to the end users yes this is valid whereas here we have have hopes that we going to construct this this binary object by the fact that we are but originally they started with about some flex parser and this is uh I think about 4 5 times faster than the boss of Flickr posit that that that that that so it's pretty fast but so basically
this originally if you're here last year and you went to the near top last year and then start up there some work on a thing called the state store would pretty much has the same semantics by the time they got done had the sentimental based on it just a head and a difference in text and ends and number people express their the view that what we really wanted was to move in the direction of days on because of something that that the world wanted and I have to some discussions and cooperation we managed to convert most of that work to use uh that today on a B and then uh for while we actually wanted to and we're we're intending to have better nested days on end Jason and but then and close to the end of the process so some people said no we don't wanna change extol we just wanna leave it as it is so we ended up basically with dates and b is the binary tree Each structure and explore staying as it is now as a mapping of flat mapping strings string so here's the did what are the original work was basically done by a latent category and under providing the whole of support for and some fast indicated then it allows the annotation work was done by uh the operated particularly with them but it again and in most of the power that an implementation of the day some functions to get to the 2nd and operators was done by me said he
was was different with isomerism cities canonical there is no whitespace or punctuation left in the binary representation just call if there is only 1 value per object k so in each case that once if you if your if your input contains a key process last 1 wins which is pretty much how mice that was good parsers that opera the K-nearest kind of quickly is done for speaker purposes and basically we store and store the keys by 1st off by length and then by but was comparison that means that when you're looking up at Keenan object you only have to have to compare a string of the same length as the the you looking at and you can just skip along until you find the keys of that link so that happens pretty fast but it doesn't say may does make it look of the all said at the this
given the has the same operators as well as the diphones and they have the same semantics except of course where there were 2 with advanced operators return days on the dates and the operators attendance and they will also have standard equality and equality operators with Jason's not here and it doesn't have because it's not quite clear what the quality actually means with data but since we know that canonical stands so for adjacent being we don't have these operators mostly alive discovered the other day met operators are not currently document said 1 of things I had there when I get home when it is here that the documentation so what I'm going to come to the end but I mean that 1 of the things that that you do is that lets you do things like distinct operations which you just can't do a union operations themselves but never come to will will come to the end it has these operations which have supported in the west which is supported in the uh the new classes of food gene this 1st operating means that the thing on the left contains the thing on the right segment the means that this thing on the left is contained by the thing on the right and that these operators are that existence of keys all values the first one thing does this this 2nd once they this do any of these key that takes in an array of values and says do any of these these all values in this in this last 1 says do also exist said he is here's
what the comparison means when the object is better than any array which is better than any volume value which is better than a number of greater than the string and rather than now if an object has an object with players is guided object with less is similarly for a rail and then and he's he's and values are compared pairwise if if the a number of elements size and numbers and strings of is yeah compared and yet we usually we use numeric comparison lexical comparison on the street and then junkies things and I had to each the check that it may not even be on case now this certainly not having massive comparison cal with there I had a little over a year we had to do some adjustment on yeah it's not active standard already but I believe is that there are some problems with the Standard order because they you may not be uh entirely transitive which is kind of undesirable when you're doing ordering operations that is and and it's not about and it's not a very odd intuitive authoring and nice but you're probably not going to want all that much but if you do something like a great by you might wonder why things come out in a particular order and that's why they will come in particular and again is because it's it's a it's it's extremely efficient BP in in in most cases where actually not having to compare elements within the comparing anonymous and this the structures its match exactly the case said this
also have all found functions is all the prices functions so by purchasing functions I mean functions that take J Summers and I can and give you back something not might be Jason's well except the only difference is that the function is the some base that would that be underscored that dice on the school but it doesn't have any of the day some creation function as we talked about you can pass to Jason Bay but I will use you know we can certainly look at our understanding as it would not be very difficult at all to extend this to work in of 5
then imaging I'm actually not going to talk terribly much met because that was that I am running out of time and so be it was covered in in uh in the little yesterday but essentially you know what we have is there to of stresses 14 in data and the default class support supports contains and only exists operators and all the for all of us which is called data and be part of any sports contains over the difference is you noticing that the book is that that this indicates is that is if you if you use this set of class because you only need to use the contends operator and it's a here called faster and the index is a heck of a lot smaller
so if somebody asked about you know he's so the balance of the document is you John basically demanded what you have what you have to do is to try to look at things like that you got these contains and in some object can live with the past all that you can use you can index subdocument and then uh this is a this is more or less how you would index the subdocument if you're only interested in looking up authors on books or what you want and then make specifically on that and you're all in the subdocument water usually get operator there and then you're going to use that expression in your query and will it will pull and get get get back the very at the local stuff is coming and that's that's also looking pretty cool and and you get this can make up a lot of these things a lot nicer you're going to be able to dig into the documents a lot more the but said there a question
when news data I mean I would say must yet new year's day somebody pretty much all the time and that there are certainly some arguments and certainly you at least 1 of the uses of addicted strenuously to uh uh even suggesting that and can it in a pretty much is use case relies on those things like preservation of the order allowing duplicate keys and on on my view is that any application relies on that is broken by design and but that's you know that some kind of a matter of opinion that basically and this idea let's put it this way unless you've got a good reason for not using Jason be used as the that would be my and it's it's it's it's going to be the future it's going to it's what's gonna let us you know at least gives the Monge DB developers a few sleepless nights and fj handset and and and instead it has been an and make post this this sort of the 60 again and I half
at this again this is is not because the future and I think my Fig operations with about fact I think most of them when we use it with the material requirements again to to emerge but I mean already the thing that was the query language that elegant editor of the of the implemented and that's pretty much an equivalent of text search query and again babbling index that is just going to make a you make this a pretty awesome and if the the big thing we're missing you can't take a piece of days on end easily Mangalore to delay the field or at a field or change the value of the field or something like that on element that will be in 905 accompaniment promise you that is is the thing that is days so no somebody distortion huge huge documents that put your you know uh and you may well have that is that does not does not describe this that is the travel and so on and so on have got the others some of you you have that know that and and this is a few megabytes is not is not that so much of deal of the ontologies that you know if you don't find story 100 gigabyte following a single days from that is that that's pretty much what I'm saying OK and that's because if you want if you particularly if you want changes is you have to you this is true with by that and so on you have to rewrite the whole data gets from a gets all really quickly so that is a problem that we actually need to address is how we can actually possibly deal with managing lads Dayton in pieces but that's kind that's kind of a big subject that's kind of that's a bit beyond our discovery just write out as something to make it makes me wake up in the middle of the nite thing I wish I had a way of doing that yeah yes yes yes yes and I've had I've had some little spheres and and you might say well will will can get if if the peace you know you might travel up into the op legit vessel on boundaries and and say well allow the peace to get this big before we start talking about stuff like that and that and we want have
some nice discovery who's going to the unconference quite a lot of you OK so 1 of the things that we're discussing the and without being affected in a little bit with a lady and is so that we need some better statistics we don't really have any statistics on on days some general Jason be we need to we need to work out how we can do that we need to work out how we can get better support in the plan for these uh rich data types and so would prevent have a session on that tomorrow and and I don't know if there any other things you think we ought to raise no OK so I'm
gonna fear it would just we have pretty much out of time that and if there are any questions yeah uh it will be maintained but I don't think you're going to see any new developments because this is what this is this is where the development is going to I mean you here yeah yeah and where it currently has a few operators particularly along the lines of the things that I was saying we need to get into 9 . 5 which on and you and you sit in the late functions that we don't have adjacent made that is currently stick relational at the new yeah yeah I agree the else but then
