How to Control Serialization through Annotations 

Flexjson is a lightweight java library for serializing and de-serializing java beans, maps, arrays and collections in JSON format. Get the latest binaries from https://sourceforge.net/projects/flexjson/. This requires the library flexjson-2.1.jar to be in classpath. The following example shows how to control the Serialization through Flexjson Annotations.

import java.util.Date;

import flexjson.JSON;

public class Student2 {
  private String firstName;
  private String lastName;
  private int age;
  private String hobby;
  private Date dob;

  public Student2(String firstName, String lastName, int age, String hobby,
      Date dob) {
    super();
    this.firstName = firstName;
    this.lastName = lastName;

  }
  public void setLastName(String lastName) {
    this.lastName = lastName;
  }
  
  @JSON(include=false)
  public int getAge() {
    return age;
  }
  public void setAge(int age) {
    this.age = age;
  }
  
  @JSON //or @JSON(include=true) default values is true
  public String getHobby() {
    return hobby;
  }

  public void setHobby(String hobby) {
    this.hobby = hobby;
  }
  
  @JSON(include=false)
  public Date getDob() {
    return dob;
  }
  public void setDob(Date dob) {
    this.dob = dob;
  }

  public String toString() {
    return "Student[ " +
      "firstName = " + firstName +
      ", lastName = " + lastName +
      ", age = " + age +
      ", hobby = " + hobby +
      ", dob = " + dob +

package com.bethecoder.tutorials.flexjson.tests;

import java.util.Date;

import com.bethecoder.tutorials.flexjson.common.Student2;

import flexjson.JSONSerializer;

public class AnnotationsTest {

  /**
   @param args
   */
  public static void main(String[] args) {

    JSONSerializer serializer = new JSONSerializer().prettyPrint(true)
    Student2 stud = new Student2("Sriram""Kasireddi"2"Singing"new Date());
    
    String jsonStr = serializer.serialize(stud);
    System.out.println(jsonStr);
  }

}
   

It gives the following output,
{
    "firstName": "Sriram",
    "hobby": "Singing",
    "lastName": "Kasireddi"
}


                    Print
