Google gson
Converts Java objects into their JSON representation

Gson is a Java library that can be used to convert Java Objects into their JSON representation. It can also be used to convert a JSON string to an equivalent Java object. Gson can work with arbitrary Java objects including pre-existing objects that you do not have source-code of.

Gson Goals

  • Provide simple toJson() and fromJson() methods to convert Java

objects to JSON and vice-versa * Allow pre-existing unmodifiable objects to be converted to and from JSON * Extensive support of Java Generics * Allow custom representations for objects * Support arbitrarily complex objects (with deep inheritance hierarchies and extensive use of generic types)
