The JSONToTuple operator in the streamsx.json toolkit currently only supports converting nested objects to nested tuples. This requires the operator to always know the structure of the JSON and does not allow for flexibility within the schema.
Supporting conversion to a map will allow content within the JSON structure to differ between submissions and support more generic operations.
