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-2.12.4-sources.jar). You can download it at Jackson Maven Website.

         * determine if we would output JSON Array, Object or scalar value.
         * Note that we just claim it is scalar; this should work ok and is simpler
         * than doing introspection on both serialization and deserialization.
