Action Jackson! Effective JSON processing in Spring Boot Applications
Joris Kuipers - Trifork
JSON processing plays an important role in nearly all applications nowadays, and Jackson is the de-facto standard library for that. Most developers are therefore familiar with using it for simple (un)marshalling purposes, but never go beyond the basics. In this session Joris will show how to effectively configure and use Jackson, focusing on Spring Boot applications. Boot provides a lot of support for configuring ObjectMappers, which you can use directly but are also used internally by the framework for e.g. handling HTTP requests/responses or message conversion. Topics will include tuning mappings, using modules, applying views and using alternative parsing options like JSON Pointer and JsonPath, all illustrated through live demos.
