Annotation Type JsonTypeResolver

    public @interface JsonTypeResolver
    Annotation that can be used to explicitly define custom resolver used for handling serialization and deserialization of type information, needed for handling of polymorphic types (or sometimes just for linking abstract types to concrete types)

    NOTE: since 2.4, applicable to properties as well (should have been long time ago, but problem only found then)
