How do I make the root element of an xbJson object an array?  

I'm try to product the following JSON data, according to the format specified by a third-party vendor I'm working with:

[
  {
    "start_time": "09:30",
    "end_time": "10:30",
    "date": "2020-01-30"
  },
  {
    "start_time": "11:30",
    "end_time": "13:30",
    "date": "2020-01-31"
  }
]

The root element of the JSON data is an array, with no tag name.  I tried this...

aTemp := {}

oJson := xbJson():new()
oJson:addVar('start_time','9:30')
oJson:addVar('end_time','10:30')
oJson:addVar('date','2020-01-31')
AADD(aTemp,oJson)

oJson := xbJson():new()
oJson:addVar('start_time','11:30')
oJson:addVar('end_time','13:30')
oJson:addVar('date','2020-01-31')
AADD(aTemp,oJson)

oJson2 := xbJson():new()
oJson2:addvar('',aTemp)
cResult := oJson2:asString()

... but it didn't work. I got this instead...

{":[
  {
    "start_time": "09:30",
    "end_time": "10:30",
    "date": "2020-01-30"
  },
  {
    "start_time": "11:30",
    "end_time": "13:30",
    "date": "2020-01-31"
  }
]}

Does anyone know the solution?  Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Chris
