Class UnsupportedTypeDeserializer

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    NullValueProvider, ValueInstantiator.Gettable,

    public class UnsupportedTypeDeserializer
    extends StdDeserializer<java.lang.Object>
    Special bogus "serializer" that will throw MismatchedInputException if an attempt is made to deserialize a value. This is used for "known unknown" types: types that we can recognize but can not support easily (or support known to be added via extension module).

    NOTE: starting with 2.13, does allow deserialization from JsonToken.VALUE_EMBEDDED_OBJECT if type matches (or is null).

        Description copied from class: JsonDeserializer
        Method that can be called to ask implementation to deserialize JSON content into the value type this serializer handles. Returned instance is to be constructed by method itself.

        Pre-condition for this method is that the parser points to the first event that is part of value to deserializer (and which is never JSON 'null' literal, more on this below): for simple types it may be the only value; and for structured types the Object start marker or a FIELD_NAME.

        The two possible input conditions for structured types result from polymorphism via fields. In the ordinary case, Jackson calls this method when it has encountered an OBJECT_START, and the method implementation must advance to the next token to see the first field name. If the application configures polymorphism via a field, then the object looks like the following.

                  "@class": "class name",
        Jackson consumes the two tokens (the @class field name and its value) in order to learn the class and select the deserializer. Thus, the stream is pointing to the FIELD_NAME for the first field after the @class. Thus, if you want your method to work correctly both with and without polymorphism, you must begin your method with:
               if (p.currentToken() == JsonToken.START_OBJECT) {
        This results in the stream pointing to the field name, so that the two conditions align.

        Post-condition is that the parser will point to the last event that is part of deserialized value (or in case deserialization fails, event that was not recognized or usable, which may be the same event as the one it pointed to upon call).

        Note that this method is never called for JSON null literal, and thus deserializers need (and should) not check for it.
