SearchRequest and simulated JSON

Hello all, the questions are either for Amazon or for developer(s) that already have their app published. Here are so far my 2 questions: 1. When using the [i]SearchRequest[/i] class, what value for the "[b]category[/b]" string should I be using to search across all Amazon catalog? We can't pass null, so what is the magic category to search across all the catalog? Could "[b]*[/b]" work? Right now I am using '[b]all[/b]' but I am wondering if such string will work for non US Amazon store? 2. It will be good that Amazon provide various samples '[i]amazon.sdktester.product.json[/i]' so app developer could get a better idea of what to expect in the various fields especially for the "description" value: will it contains new lines? How long can it be? etc... I have no problem creating my own JSON file but having at least a few official from Amazon will help developers Thank!

1) "All" works across all search categories. Currently MAA functionality is only Available to US customers - the functionality is not available for non-US Amazon stores. 2) We have noted the feature request for the JSON file, and will plan on including one in a future release.
