Schematron based JSON Semantic Validator. JSON Semantic Rules Engine.

Installation

$ npm i jsontron

   Note: If you have not installed node and npm. Please follow instructions at below site to install node and npm
   docs.npmjs.com/getting-started/installing-node.

Usage at terminal

Command Lines:

	#go to the bin folder of jsontron module
	
	cd $JSONTRON_ROOT/bin
	 
	//run JSONValidator with instance doc, rules doc and optional phase list
	//#ALL and #DEFAULT are special key words meant to invoke all or default phases respectively
	
	
	node JSONValidator -i {instance doc} -r { rules doc} [#ALL | #DEFAULT | Phase List] [-d]
	
	# where:
	# i is json instance document to be validated
	# r is rules file
	# #ALL | #DEFAULT | Phase list  specifies the phase (s)
	# d is to enable debug
	 
	# alternatively you can set an environment variable for JSONValidator like below
	# in Windows
	 
	set JSONValidator = $JSONTRON_ROOT/bin/JSONValidator

	# Example
	cd ../node_modules/jsontron/data/dissertation/phase
	node %JSONValidator% -i loandata.json -r loandat-rulees_dissertation_singlePhase.json

    0 Pattern(s)  Ignored.
    Report {
      errors: [],

           assertionTest: 'jp.query(contextNode,\'$..amount\') <= 500000',

     **** THIS INSTANCE IS SEMANTICALLY VALID ****

Usage inside other modules/scripts

	var jsontron = require("jsontron");
	
	myInstance = { "doc": {} };
	myRules = {
	"schema":{
	"id":"eg3_1",
	"title":"Technical document schema",
	"schemaVersion":"ISO Schematron 2016",
	"queryBinding":"jsonpath",
	"defaultPhase":"phaseid1",
	 "phase":[
    	{
    		"id":"phaseid1",
    		"active":["Document_root"]
    	}
    ], 
	"pattern":[
      {
      	"id":"Document_root",
      	"title":"pattern title",
      	"rule":[
          {          
              	"id":"doc_root",
              	"abstract":false,
                "context": "$",
                "assert":[
                  {
                     "id":"doc_root_assert",
                     "test":"contextNode.length ==1 && contextNode[0] == jp.parent(contextNode, '$..doc')",
                     "message": "Root element should be 'doc'."
                  }
                ]              
          }]}]}};
          
          
    //without phase
    var myReport = jsontron.JSONTRON.validate(myInstance, myRules);
    var valid = myReport.valid;
    
    //with phase
    var myReport = jsontron.JSONTRON.validate(myInstance, myRules, ['phaseid1']);
    var valid = myReport.valid;
    [Note: the phase(s) have to be in array format like ['phaseid1'] or ['phaseid2'] or ['phaseid1', 'phaseid2'] or ['#DEFAULT']   ]

Example - Using IBM Examples from Command Line

        # IBM Schematron examples translated from XML to JSON are bundled with the module in data/ibm-test-suite folder
	# Below is an example using IBM Example 3.1
	
	cd $JSONTRON_ROOT\data\ibm-test-suite\3.1
	
	node JSONValidator -i eg3_1_good1.json -r eg3_1-rules.json

Output:

Parsing Pattern: Document_root
 1 Pattern(s) Requested.
1 Pattern(s) Processed.
0 Pattern(s)  Ignored.
 Report {
   errors: [],
   warnings: [],
   validations:
      [ { schRule: [Object],
       ruleContext: [Object],
       assertionid: 'doc_root_assert',
       assertionTest: 'contextNode.length ==1 && contextNode[0] == jp.parent(contextNode, \'$..doc\')',
       message: 'successful',
       assertionValid: true } ] }
