jmri.server.json for general information concerning how the JMRI
JSON support works.
Car TypesJMRI Operations maintains a text property
typefor rolling stock; this property is divided into two parts with a hyphen, where only the first part is displayed in manifests and switch lists, and the second part provides additional detail in support of operations automation.
In the JSON representation of rolling stock
"carType" matches just the
part of the
type that is displayed;
"carSubType" contains the
type part or is null if there is no second part. Note that the
car types listed when requesting a list of all car types include both parts
in a single string.
When setting the
type for a piece of rolling stock using a PUT or
POST message, include the entire type, both parts separated with a hyphen, in
the "carType" property.
Using "carSubType" in a
message from the client is not schema valid.
Note that a future version (likely version 6) of the JMRI JSON protocol will include the entire type in the "carType" property, so that the property in a rolling stock entry will match the types listed when getting a list of in use types.
