JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) is a lightweight text-based open standard designed for human-readable data interchange. Douglas Crockford has provided a reference implementation of JSON in Java at useful for JSON serialization and deserialization. Click here to download the compiled library. The following example shows serializing a subset of simple JSON object.

package com.bethecoder.tutorials.json_java.tests;

import java.util.Date;
import java.util.HashMap;
import java.util.Map;

import org.json.JSONException;
import org.json.JSONObject;

public class JsonSubset {

   @param args
   @throws JSONException 
  public static void main(String[] argsthrows JSONException {

    Map<String, Object> map = new HashMap<String, Object>();
    map.put("dob"new Date(11046));
    JSONObject obj = new JSONObject(map);
    System.out.println(obj.toString(2))//pretty print with indent
    JSONObject subset = new JSONObject(obj, new String [] { "name""age" });
    System.out.println(subset.toString(2))//pretty print with indent


It gives the following output,
  "name": "Sriram",
  "age": 2,
  "dob": "Thu May 06 00:00:00 IST 2010",
  "hobby": "painting"

  "age": 2,
  "name": "Sriram"
