Contains extended support for "external" packages: things that may or may not be present in runtime environment, but that are commonly enough used so that explicit support can be added.
Currently supported extensions include:
- Support for Java 1.5 core XML datatypes: the reason these are considered "external" is that some platforms that claim to be 1.5 conformant are only partially so (Google Android, GAE) and do not included these types.
- Joda time. This package has superior date/time handling functionality, and is thus supported. However, to minimize forced dependencies this support is added as extension so that Joda is not needed by Jackson itself: but if it is present, its core types are supported to some degree
Class Summary Class Description CoreXMLDeserializersContainer deserializers that handle "core" XML types: ones included in standard JDK 1.5. CoreXMLDeserializers.Std CoreXMLSerializersProvider for serializers of XML types that are part of full JDK 1.5, but that some alleged 1.5 platforms are missing (Android, GAE). CoreXMLSerializers.XMLGregorianCalendarSerializer DOMDeserializer<T>Base for serializers that allows parsing DOM Documents from JSON Strings. DOMDeserializer.DocumentDeserializer DOMDeserializer.NodeDeserializer DOMSerializer Java7HandlersTo support Java7-incomplete platforms, we will offer support for JDK 7 datatype(s) (that is,
Paththrough this class, loaded dynamically; if loading fails, support will be missing.
Java7HandlersImpl Java7SupportTo support Java7-incomplete platforms, we will offer support for JDK 7 annotations through this class, loaded dynamically; if loading fails, support will be missing. Java7SupportImpl NioPathDeserializer NioPathSerializer OptionalHandlerFactoryHelper class used for isolating details of handling optional+external types (javax.xml classes) from standard factories that offer them.
