How Do I properly format a String for parsing with a com.google.gson.JsonParser

+1
−3

I am trying to check a JSON array for a certain element. However, when I try to instantiate a JsonElement to search the list for:

JsonElement builderElement = JsonParser.parseString("{\"discordId\":" + event.getAuthor().getIdLong() + ",\"discordTag\":" + event.getAuthor().getAsTag() + ",\"role\":\"builder\"}");

The resulting error is

java.io.EOFException: End of input at line 1 column 77 path $.discordTag.

event.getAuthor().getIdLong() is retrieving the discord message authors ID and event.getAuthor().getAsTag() is retrieving the discord message author in the form of username#0000.

A snippet of the JSON array I am searching is as follows:

{"discordId":"255499044925865984","discordTag":"Joker#2234","role":"builder"},{"discordId":"219899183966978048","discordTag":"Dippy#7607","role":"builder"},{"discordId":"261959402012147712","discordTag":"TrueMags#0618","role":"builder"},{"discordId":"399011983845883914","discordTag":"DealySon#0584","role":"builder"},{"discordId":"97867804463599616","discordTag":"EpicMisterB#1337","role":"co-leader"},

As far as I can tell, it is an issue with formatting of the string I am parsing in builderElement.
