AWS Glue to Lambda via JSON

Parsing Hive/OpenX JSON SerDe from AWS Glue in Node.js

Spark ETL on AWS Glue produces JSON that cannot be parsed in JavaScript. According to AWS, the format of JSON produced is native Hive JSON SerDe or the OpenX JSON SerDe.

This is an example of the JSON produced by Glue:

{ "forename" : "John", "surname" : "Elliott" }
