Jackson is a Java library for processing JSON data format. It has support for marshaling and unmarshalling Java to and from JSON. It has a JAX-RS content handler that can automatically convert between Java objects and JSON, and vice-versa. It can generate JSON schemas from a Java object model.

If the tree model is used, this is also required:

JSON Processing Methods
Jackson offers three alternative methods for processing JSON:
Streaming APIThe Streaming API reads and writes JSON as a series of discrete events, in a mode called "incremental parsing/generation". The other methods (Tree Model and Simple Data Binding and Full Data Binding) are built in top of it. However, this is not the most convenient method, because is relatively low level. For more details, see:
Tree ModelA JSON document is converted into a mutable in-memory tree representation of the JSON document. Tree model is arguably the most flexible of all three methods. For more details, see:
Simple Data Binding
Jackson extracts data from JSON and initializes an in-memory Java Map/List/String/Number/Boolean/null hierarchy. Jackson specialized data representation types such as JsonNode are not used.
Full Data Binding
Jackson converts JSON to any Java bean type, and any Java bean type can be automatically written as JSON. Data binding is arguably the most convenient of all three methods.
