Interface TypeIdResolver

All Known Implementing Classes:
ClassNameIdResolver, MinimalClassNameIdResolver, TypeIdResolverBase, TypeNameIdResolver

public interface TypeIdResolver

Interface that defines standard API for converting types to type identifiers and vice versa. Used by type resolvers (TypeSerializer, TypeDeserializer) for converting between type and matching id; id is stored in JSON and needed for creating instances of proper subtypes when deserializing values.


Method Summary
 com.fasterxml.jackson.annotation.JsonTypeInfo.IdgetMechanism()
          Accessor for mechanism that this resolver uses for determining type id from type.
 StringidFromBaseType()
          Method that can be called to figure out type id to use for instances of base type (declared type of property).
 StringidFromValue(Object value)
          Method called to serialize type of the type of given value as a String to include in serialized JSON content.
 StringidFromValueAndType(Object value, Class<?> suggestedType)
          Alternative method used for determining type from combination of value and type, using suggested type (that serializer provides) and possibly value of that type.
 voidinit(JavaType baseType)
          Method that will be called once before any type resolution calls; used to initialize instance with configuration.
 JavaTypetypeFromId(String id)
          Method called to resolve type from given type identifier.
 

Method Detail

init

void init(JavaType baseType)
Method that will be called once before any type resolution calls; used to initialize instance with configuration. This is necessary since instances may be created via reflection, without ability to call specific constructor to pass in configuration settings.

Parameters:
baseType - Base type for which this id resolver instance is used

idFromValue

String idFromValue(Object value)
Method called to serialize type of the type of given value as a String to include in serialized JSON content.


idFromValueAndType

String idFromValueAndType(Object value,                          Class<?> suggestedType)
Alternative method used for determining type from combination of value and type, using suggested type (that serializer provides) and possibly value of that type. Most common implementation will use suggested type as is.


idFromBaseType

String idFromBaseType()
Method that can be called to figure out type id to use for instances of base type (declared type of property). This is usually only used for fallback handling, for cases where real type information is not available for some reason.


typeFromId

JavaType typeFromId(String id)
Method called to resolve type from given type identifier.


getMechanism

com.fasterxml.jackson.annotation.JsonTypeInfo.Id getMechanism()
Accessor for mechanism that this resolver uses for determining type id from type. Mostly informational; not required to be called or used.
