Hi Soumadri,
I think in your schema, data type is int for price1 and price2. Json format returns values based on types mentioned in the schema.

Subject: [MarkLogic Dev General] JSON transformation problem

I am trying to transform the below mentioned XML data into JSON:
When I am executing it against a database which does not have the respective schema associated I am getting the following output:
{"data":{"price1":"10.23", "price2":"10.00"}}
When I am executing it against a database with proper schema associated, it returns the following:
{"data":{"price1":10.23, "price2":10}}
Note that the second one treated the values as integer. This is not happening when the data is returned in XML format.
Why the function is behaving differently in the above two cases and is there a way to retain two decimal places after dot(.) even when the schema is associated?
