    } set; }
    
    public string jsonGen { get{
    	 //JSON Generator Class method 
    	 JSONGenerator gen = JSON.createGenerator(false);//true gives output in pretty print
    	
    	if(acc==null){
    		return '';  		
    	}else{
    		
    		gen.writeStartArray();
            
            for(Account a: acc){
                
                gen.writeStartObject();
                    
                    gen.writeStringField('Name', a.name);
                    gen.writeStringField('Id', a.Id);
                    if(a.AccountNumber==null)
                        gen.writeStringField('Account Number', '');

            }
            
        gen.writeEndArray();
