We have a JsonDecoder which parses JSON encoded messages that have come over the Heka protocol. We also need a decoder that allows users to define a mapping from arbitrary JSON to a message structure, however, just like the (poorly named) LoglineDecoder converts regex-parse-able text to a message structure.

The decoder should assume that it will be handed message objects with valid JSON in the payload, such as a message that might be generated by an HttpInput fetching JSON documents from a remote HTTP URL.


JSONPath is probably worth considering as a mechanism for describing how the arbitrary JSON should be mapped to a message.
