Hi all

I need some help understanding json, and how it is returned.

I've got a simple user object (usercode,userFirstname,userSurname,pwChanged).
Which is represented like so in in json

This I completely understand. However when I get a List of the user objects from Glassfish, I get the following

When I try and pass this through something like Google GSON I get an error until I change the json string to look like the following

Note the removal of the {"user"[]} that surrounded the first list.

Am i misunderstanding something here?
