The command loaddata data.json errors with DeserializationError instead of MemoryError.



relevant code is simplejson.load(stream) inside the try:

def Deserializer(stream_or_string, **options):
    Deserialize a stream or string of JSON data.
    if isinstance(stream_or_string, basestring):
        stream = StringIO(stream_or_string)
        stream = stream_or_string
        for obj in PythonDeserializer(simplejson.load(stream), **options):
            yield obj
    except GeneratorExit:
    except Exception, e:
        # Map to deserializer error
        raise DeserializationError(e)

In Python 3 this could be written as raise DeserializationError from e, but I don't see a better equivalent in Python 2.

i think there's too much going on in the try statement:

        for obj in PythonDeserializer(simplejson.load(stream), **options):
            yield obj

the error arises from simplejson.load(stream) when reading a large json file from disk during

Possibly fixed by #5423.

No, #5423 is fixing dumpdata, this ticket is about loaddata. The problem with loaddata is that it would be very difficult to incrementally read the file.
