Jackson Data Binding Source Code

Jackson is "the Java JSON library" or "the best JSON parser for Java". Or simply as "JSON for Java".

  • Jackson Data Binding module allows you to converts JSON to and from POJO (Plain Old Java Object) using property accessor or using annotations.
  • Jackson Databind Source Code files are provided in the source packge (jackson-databind-2.14.0-sources.jar). You can download it at Jackson Maven Website.

     * A {@link TypeDeserializer} capable of deducing polymorphic types based on the
     * fields available. Deduction is limited to the <i>names</i> of child properties
     * (not their values or, consequently, any nested descendants).
     * Exceptions will be thrown if not enough unique information is present
     * to select a single subtype.
     * <p>
     * The current deduction process <b>does not</b> support pojo-hierarchies such that
     * the absence of child fields infers a parent type. That is, every deducible subtype
     * MUST have some unique fields and the input data MUST contain said unique fields
     * to provide a <i>positive match</i>.
