Jackson Annotations Source Code

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

Jackson Annotations Source Code files are provided in the source packge (jackson-annotations-2.12.4-sources.jar). You can download it at Jackson Maven Website.

 * {@link PolymorphicTypeValidator} that will only allow polymorphic handling if
 * the base type is NOT one of potential dangerous base types (see {@link #isUnsafeBaseType}
 * for specific list of such base types). No further validation is performed on subtype.
 * Note that when using potentially unsafe base type like {@link java.lang.Object} a custom
 * implementation (or subtype with override) is needed. Most commonly subclasses would
 * override both {@link #isUnsafeBaseType} and {@link #isSafeSubType}: former to allow
 * all (or just more) base types, and latter to add actual validation of subtype.
