This unit is a Processor unit type.
The JSON Parser unit parses events containing a properly formatted JSON, using Jackson.
An event comes in through the in port. The data field content is parsed using the Jackson JSON parser.
Successful input events are enriched with a new field containing the parse result, and the event is output through the out port.
If an error occurs, the input event is enriched with new fields describing the problem, and the event is sent through the error port.
