Uber-project for (some) standard Jackson textual format backends: csv, properties, yaml (xml to be added in future)
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:
JsonFactory, which is factory for:
JsonParserfor reading data (decoding data encoding in supported format)
JsonGeneratorfor writing data (encoding data using supported format)
ObjectMapperfor additional support for databinding
there will be some changes (such as introduction of format-specific
ObjectMappersub-classes) in Jackson 3.0.
masterbranch is for developing the next major Jackson version -- 3.0 -- but there are active maintenance branches in which much of development happens:
2.13is for developing the next minor 2.x version
2.12is for backported fixes for 2.12 patch versions
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.
Currently included backends are:
Standard supported formats that are not yet included here (but are likely added in future) are:
