Hi,

I'm having a problem getting a String of Json to "pretty print".  After 
doing some cleanup of the String I can get it "pretty printed" 
using https://jsonformatter.curiousconcept.com/, so I think I'm just using 
the Jackson Api in the wrong way.


Here is my code:
@Test
public void testToPrettyJson_ProblematicString() throws Exception {
String problematicString = 
"{\"data\":[{\"id\":\"57fa47de76a073d78a63b726\",\"firstName\":\"pVvnTRAv\",\"lastName\":\"ABtWQaSW\",\"fullName\":\"ABtWQaSW,
 
pVvnTRAv\",\"emailAddress\":\"20161009-15363...@test.com\",\"workNumber\":\"+27 
12 123 1234\",\"cellNumber\":null,\"homeNumber\":null,\"status\":\"Pending 
approval\",\"displayStatus\":\"Pending 
approval\",\"displayStatusColor\":\"<span style=\\\"color:red\\\">Pending 
approval</span>\",\"suspensionNotes\":\"<span style=\\\"color:red\\\">Test 
suspension 
notes.</span>\",\"notes\":null,\"createDate\":\"09/10/2016\",\"lastUpdate\":\"09/10/2016\",\"admin\":\"System\",\"isStatusActive\":false}],\"recordsTotal\":0,\"recordsFiltered\":521,\"draw\":1}";
trace("Problematic string: " + problematicString);
problematicString = problematicString.replaceAll("\\\"", "\"");
trace("Problematic string after manual cleanup: " + problematicString);
String json = new 
ObjectMapper().writerWithDefaultPrettyPrinter().writeValueAsString(problematicString);
trace("Json: " + json);
}


So I think the problem is that I'm using #writeValueAsString(..) when I'm 
already working with a String.  How can I get my String to "pretty print"? 
 When I work with objects the #writeValueAsString(..) method works fine, so 
I'm just unsure how to proceed now that I'm working with a String...


Here's the test's output:

Problematic string:

Any insight appreciated!  Many thanks!!! :)
