Input JSON fileB person.txt:

I wish to transform above JSON document, into another JSON document which should look like following,

 B  B "id" : 105,
 B  B "medals" : [1, 2, 3],
 B  B "name" : "Mukul Gandhi",
 B  B "address" : {
 B  B  B  "street1" : "xyz",
 B  B  B  "street2" : "maddison avenue",
 B  B  B  "country" : "C1"
 B  B  }

In general I agree that conversion to XML allows easier processing of and transformation of JSON but your simply example could also be done at the XPath 3.1 level with map functions:

<xsl:output method="json" indent="yes"/>

  <xsl:param name="json-string" as="xs:string">{
   "id" : 105,
   "medals" : [1, 2, 3],
   "fName" : "Mukul",
   "lName" : "Gandhi",
   "address" : {
      "street1" : "xyz",
      "street2" : "maddison avenue",
      "country" : "C1"

<xsl:variable name="map1" select="parse-json($json-string)"/>

<xsl:template match="/">
<xsl:sequence select="map:remove(map:put($map1, 'name', $map1?fName || ' ' || $map1?lName), ('fName', 'lName'))"/>

BTW: What did you get the medals for?
