Serialize C header structures to/from json

I have around 40 header files containing data structures the I need to be able to convert to and from json. I have an existing framework/base class that is based on RapidJson that simplifies the process and matches my needs. Most of the data structures are fairly simple. There are a few that are more involved and have embedded arrays or other embedded structures.

The base class mostly encapsulates and hides the json library, however for the few structures that are more complicated, you may need to extend the base class to include additional functionality (for which you will probably need to spend some time learning how to work with RapidJson).

You will receive the framework, the source header files, and data files to test with. One of the header files is already converted to show how it works as an example. You will complete a subclass for each source header file that performs the serialization and passes the associated test data file.

No specific development environment is required, any relatively modern c++ compiler will work as long as it can compile RapidJson ([login to view URL]).

The following is an example of what a simple translation would look like:


typedef struct

{ unsigned short id;

char name[15];

unsigned short data1;

unsigned short data2;

unsigned short data3;

#define options1_value1 0x0001

#define options1_value2 0x0002

unsigned short options1;

} example_struct;


class TBinaryRecordToJson_Example : public TBinaryRecordToJson



virtual bool ToJson(const void *Buffer,int BufferSize,std::string &Json);

virtual bool ToBinary(const std::string &Json,void *Buffer,int BufferSize);



bool TBinaryRecordToJson_Example::ToJson(const void *Buffer,int BufferSize,std::string &Json)

{ example_struct *R=(example_struct *)Buffer;

std::vector<std::string> Options;

if (R->options1&options1_value1)


if (R->options1&options1_value2)













bool TBinaryRecordToJson_Example::ToBinary(const std::string &Json,void *Buffer,int BufferSize)

{ example_struct R;


std::vector<std::string> Options;


JsonGetValue_unsigned_short("id",[login to view URL]);

JsonGetValue_string("name",[login to view URL],sizeof([login to view URL]));

JsonGetValue_unsigned_short("data1",[login to view URL]);

JsonGetValue_unsigned_short("data2",[login to view URL]);

JsonGetValue_unsigned_short("data3",[login to view URL]);


for (std::vector<std::string>::iterator it=[login to view URL](); it!=[login to view URL](); ++it)

{ if (*it=="options1_value1")

[login to view URL]|=options1_value1;

else if (*it=="options1_value2")

[login to view URL]|=options1_value2;
