Unable to compile org.json.JSONObject library



User is trying to convert Pega Clipboard page to JSON object to use in Connect-REST rule.

After converting Clipboard page in JSON Object, user is also removing pxObjClass using new function rule created using org.json.JSONObject.

They are able to generate the library and function in Developer environment, but the same is throwing an error in System integration testing (SIT) environment.

Error Messages

 ERROR in com/pegarules/generated/ (at line 103, line 109, line 110) , (at line 111), (at line 112), (at line 114), (at line 115),(at line 124)
org.json.JSONObject jo=new org.json.JSONObject(jsonSource);
org.json.JSONObject cannot be resolved to a type


Steps to Reproduce

Generate the library having new function.

Root Cause

The jar related to org.json.JSONObject is missing in the environment.


Make the following change to the operating environment:

Import the proper jar.
After importing the custom function is not working properly, then use the below function to remove pxobjclass:

json = json.replaceAll("\"" + prop + "\"[ ]*:[^,}\\]]*[,]?", "")


json is the string containing the json data and prop is the key that you want to remove. This works perfectly for a single valued key like pxobjclass.
