  • You have made no mention of GeoJSON in your question so please revise it with more detail about precisely what you want to ask. – PolyGeo Jun 28 '17 at 11:45
  • I have edited my question now..Now Can you help me @PolyGeo.? – Priyanka Jun 28 '17 at 11:50
  • I'm not a potential answerer of your question but I think you may need to edit it some more before it is likely to attract one. – PolyGeo Jun 28 '17 at 11:58

According to table 44 of the WPS specification you can specify the mime type of your output type.

Checking my local GeoServer's WPS request generator (look under demos) the mime type you want is mimeType="application/json".
