JSON Binding with EclipseLink MOXy - Twitter Example

In a previous post I described how the Jettison library could be used with any JAXB implementation (Metro, MOXy, JaxMe, etc) to produce/consume JSON.  Now I'll demonstrate the native object-to-JSON binding MOXy JAXB introduced in EclipseLink 2.4.  With MOXy as your JAXB provider you can produce/consume JSON using the standard JAXB APIs (available in Java SE 6) without adding any compile time dependencies.

You can try this out now using a download available from:


Twitter Query

In this example our JSON corresponds to the results of a query to get recent tweets about JAXB.  We will use the Twitter Search API for this.

URL

Below is the URL corresponding to the search.  We are looking for posts containing the word "jaxb", and want the result returned as JSON:

http://search.twitter.com/search.json?q=jaxb

Result (Formatted)

Below is what the result of the query looked like at the time I was writing this post (I'm surprised that none of them were from me):

Demo

The standard JAXB APIs are used the process the JSON message.  The only difference between this demo code, and the code I post for XML examples is the setting of two properties: "eclipselink.media.type" to specify "application/json", and "eclipselink.json.include-root" to indicate there is no root node.  These properties are set on the Marshaller (lines 13 and 14) and Unmarshaller (lines 26 and 27).  Since the JSON message does not contain a root node that can be used to determine the corresponding object type, we will leverage one of the Unmarshaller methods that lets us specify it (line 16).

Specify MOXy as the JAXB Provider (jaxb.properties)

To configure MOXy as your JAXB provider simply add a file named jaxb.properties in the same package as your domain model with the following entry:

javax.xml.bind.context.factory=org.eclipse.persistence.jaxb.JAXBContextFactory
For more information see:  Specifying EclipseLink MOXy as Your JAXB Provider.

Java Model

MOXy leverages the same annotations used to map objects to/from XML for its JSON binding.  In upcoming posts I'll expand on how the XML binding metadata is interpreted for JSON.

SearchResults

package blog.json.twitter;

import java.util.List;

import javax.xml.bind.annotation.XmlElement;

public class SearchResults {

    private String query;
    private float completedIn;
    List<Result> results;

    public String getQuery() {
        return query;
    }

    public void setQuery(String query) {
        this.query = query;
    }

    @XmlElement(name="completed_in")
    public float getCompletedIn() {
        return completedIn;
    }

    public void setCompletedIn(float completedIn) {
        this.completedIn = completedIn;
    }

    public List<Result> getResults() {
        return results;
    }

    public void setResults(List<Result> results) {
        this.results = results;
    }

}

Result

package blog.json.twitter;

import java.util.Date;

import javax.xml.bind.annotation.XmlElement;
import javax.xml.bind.annotation.adapters.XmlJavaTypeAdapter;

public class Result {

    private Date createdAt;
    private String fromUser;
    private String text;

    @XmlElement(name="created_at")
    @XmlJavaTypeAdapter(DateAdapter.class)
    public Date getCreatedAt() {
        return createdAt;
    }

    public void setCreatedAt(Date createdAt) {
        this.createdAt = createdAt;
    }

    @XmlElement(name="from_user")
    public String getFromUser() {
        return fromUser;
    }

    public void setFromUser(String fromUser) {
        this.fromUser = fromUser;
    }

    public String getText() {
        return text;
    }

    public void setText(String text) {
        this.text = text;
    }

}

DateAdapter

I have written a lot about how useful JAXB's XmlAdapter is in XML binding.  XmlAdapter is equally powerful when used with JSON binding:

package blog.json.twitter;

import java.text.SimpleDateFormat;
import java.util.Date;

import javax.xml.bind.annotation.adapters.XmlAdapter;

public class DateAdapter extends XmlAdapter<String, Date> {

    private SimpleDateFormat dateFormat = new SimpleDateFormat("EEE, d MMM yyyy HH:mm:ss Z");

    @Override
    public String marshal(Date date) throws Exception {
        return dateFormat.format(date);
    }

    @Override
    public Date unmarshal(String string) throws Exception {
        return dateFormat.parse(string);
    }

}

  2. Hi Blaise
    Recently I was doing some experiments with EclipseLink 2.4 JSON binding feature. I was playing with marshalling/unmarshalling json and xml data to/from java objects (with xml elements in different namespaces).
    It turns out that when I specify NAMESPACE_PREFIX_MAPPER with non empty namespace prefixes the json marshal/unmarshall goes well. But when I want to put a blank namespase prefix (corresponding to the default namespace in XML) the marshal goes well (it generates json objects without namespace prefixes) but the unmarshall gives me an error saying that the element could not be found. Is this a normal behavior or is a bug in json unmarshalling procedure?
    Best regards
    George

  3. hi I am newbie to eclipeslinks, While running the demo program i am facaing below exception
    Exception in thread "main" javax.xml.bind.PropertyException: name: eclipselink.media-type value: application/json
    at javax.xml.bind.helpers.AbstractMarshallerImpl.setProperty(AbstractMarshallerImpl.java:338)

    at com.oracle.example.Demo.main(Demo.java:38)

    Pls advice..

    1. Since the stack trace contains classes from the com.sun.xml.internal.bind.v2 package MOXy is not being picked up as your JAXB (JSR-222) provider. You can specify MOXy as your JAXB provider using a jaxb.properties file, see:
      - Specifying EclipseLink MOXy as Your JAXB Provider

      Here is a link to an example (hosted on GitHub) that you can try out:
