  • Use unboxed types in parameters and fields where possible
  • Fix setting extended/implemented types (before it was setting all as extends, rather than putting the interfaces on implements, which would generate invalid code).
  • Redesign how polymorphism works (see commit comments for details).

Make Jackson polymorphism actually work properly
The old way didn't work because all POJO classes had private
construtors, and so if a base class had properties, there was no way to
properly subclass it.

This is also a bit of a redesign.  Now each class defn in the hierarchy
"owns" its own properties (that is, it has fields for the properties
declared on it).  Child classes also own their own properties, but are
responsible for also taking care of their parents' properties in the
builder, and passing them to superclasses via super() calls in the

In the end, this turns out to be a lot more consistent and easier to
reason about.

@kelnos kelnos requested a review from blast-hardcheese May 1, 2019

Convert nulls to empty-optional in Jackson POJO constructors
The Builders ensure that constructor args will never be null, but
Jackson itself might pass null when deserializing from the wire.  Since
we treat optional parameters such that they need not even be present in
the JSON received, we just want an empty optional in these cases and
there's no reason to use requireNonNull(), which will throw an NPE.
