Try to solve this challenge on your own to maximize learning. We recommend you refer to the DataWeave documentation only. Try to avoid using Google or asking others so you can learn on your own and become a DataWeave expert!


💡 Tip: Instead of trying to write the whole code yourself, browse in the documentation for any function that would do the work for you 👀



Input


Consider the following JSON input payload:


{
    "name": "a",
    "object": {
      "name": "b",
      "l": [
        {
          "other": "c",
          "list": [
            
          ]
        },
        {
          "thisname": "def",
          "list": [
            {
              "this": "500e",
              "l": [
                {
                  "finalname": "f"
                },
                {
                  "finalname": "ghijk"
                }
              ]
            }
          ]
        }
      ]
    },
    "array": [
      {
        "thisname": "h"
      },
      {
        "xyz": "abc123"
      }
    ]
  }


Explanation of the problem


Create a DataWeave script that will update all the values to uppercase, except the ones in which the field equals thisname.


For example, the first field name with the value "a" has to be transformed to "A". However, the field thisname with the value of "def" should stay the same.



Expected output


In this case, the expected output would be:


{
  "name": "A",
  "object": {
    "name": "B",
    "l": [
      {
        "other": "C",
        "list": [
          
        ]
      },
      {
        "thisname": "def",
        "list": [
          {
            "this": "500E",
            "l": [
              {
                "finalname": "F"
              },
              {
                "finalname": "GHIJK"
              }
            ]
          }
        ]
      }
    ]
  },
  "array": [
    {
      "thisname": "h"
    },
    {
      "xyz": "ABC123"
    }
  ]
}
