This Jackson extension handles reading and writing of data encoded in Smile data format ("binary JSON").
It extends standard Jackson streaming API (
JsonGenerator), and as such works seamlessly with all the higher level data abstractions (data binding, tree model, and pluggable extensions).
Module is fully usable, but depends on Jackson 2.0; older 1.x version is still available via Codehaus, and Jackson 1.x Download page.
To use this module on Maven-based projects, use following dependency:
<dependency> <groupId>com.fasterxml.jackson.dataformat</groupId> <artifactId>jackson-dataformat-smile</artifactId> <version>2.5.0</version> </dependency>
(or whatever version is most up-to-date at the moment)
Basic usage is by using
SmileFactory in places where you would usually use
SmileFactory f = new SmileFactory(); // can configure instance with 'SmileParser.Feature' and 'SmileGenerator.Feature' ObjectMapper mapper = new ObjectMapper(f); // and then read/write data as usual SomeType value = ...; byte smileData = mapper.writeValueAsBytes(value); SomeType otherValue = mapper.readValue(smileData, SomeType.class);
