This is a multi-module umbrella project for Jackson standard text-format dataformat backends.
Dataformat backends are used to support format alternatives to JSON, using general-purpose Jackson API. Formats included allow access using all 3 API styles (streaming, databinding, tree model).
For Jackson 2.x this is done by sub-classing Jackson core abstractions of:
- All backends sub-class
JsonFactory, which is factory for:
JsonParserfor reading data (decoding data encoding in supported format)
JsonGeneratorfor writing data (encoding data using supported format)
- Some backends sub-class
ObjectMapperfor additional support for databinding
there will be some changes (such as introduction of format-specific
sub-classes) in Jackson 3.0.
master branch is for developing the next major Jackson version -- 3.0 -- but there
are active maintenance branches in which much of development happens:
2.11is for developing the next minor 2.x version
2.10is for backported fixes for 2.10 patch version
Older branches are usually not changed but are available for historic reasons.
All released versions have matching git tags (
Note that since individual format modules used to live in their own repositories, older branches and tags do not exist in this repository.
