Example

Comparing these two JSON strings:

{
    "name":"John",
    "age":30,
    "cars": [
        { "name":"Ford", "models":[ "Fiesta", "Focus", "Mustang" ] },
        { "name":"BMW", "models":[ "320", "X3", "X5" ] },
        { "name":"Fiat", "models":[ "500", "Panda" ] }
    ]
 }

{
    "name":"Johnny",
    "age":30,
    "cars": [
        { "name":"Ford", "models":[ "Fiesta", "Ka", "Mustang" ] },
        { "name":"BMW", "models":[ "350", "X3", "X5" ] },
        { "name":"Seat", "models":[ "500", "Panda" ] }
    ]
 }

The default result is:

name: John > Johnny, models[1]: Focus > Ka, models[0]: 320 > 350, name: Fiat > Seat
