Class ObjectNode

    • Method Detail

      • deepCopy

        public ObjectNode deepCopy()
        Description copied from class: JsonNode
        Method that can be called to get a node that is guaranteed not to allow changing of this node through mutators on this node or any of its children. This means it can either make a copy of this node (and all mutable children and grand children nodes), or node itself if it is immutable.

        Note: return type is guaranteed to have same type as the node method is called on; which is why method is declared with local generic type.

        Specified by:
        deepCopy in class JsonNode
        Returns:
        Node that is either a copy of this node (and all non-leaf children); or, for immutable leaf nodes, node itself.
      • isObject

        public final boolean isObject()
        Description copied from interface: TreeNode
        Method that returns true if this node is an Object node, false otherwise. Note that if true is returned, TreeNode.isContainerNode() must also return true.
        Specified by:
        isObject in interface TreeNode
        Overrides:
        isObject in class JsonNode
        Returns:
        True for Object nodes, false for everything else
      • asToken

        public JsonToken asToken()
        Description copied from class: BaseJsonNode
        Method that can be used for efficient type detection when using stream abstraction for traversing nodes. Will return the first JsonToken that equivalent stream event would produce (for most nodes there is just one token but for structured/container types multiple)
        Specified by:
        asToken in interface TreeNode
        Specified by:
        asToken in class ContainerNode<ObjectNode>
        Returns:
        JsonToken that is most closely associated with the node type
      • size

        public int size()
        Description copied from interface: TreeNode
        Method that returns number of child nodes this node contains: for Array nodes, number of child elements, for Object nodes, number of fields, and for all other nodes 0.
        Specified by:
        size in interface TreeNode
        Specified by:
        size in class ContainerNode<ObjectNode>
        Returns:
        For non-container nodes returns 0; for arrays number of contained elements, and for objects number of fields.
      • isEmpty

        public boolean isEmpty()
        Description copied from class: JsonNode
        Convenience method that is functionally same as:
            size() == 0
        
        for all node types.
        Overrides:
        isEmpty in class JsonNode
      • elements

        public Iterator<JsonNode> elements()
        Description copied from class: JsonNode
        Method for accessing all value nodes of this Node, iff this node is a JSON Array or Object node. In case of Object node, field names (keys) are not included, only values. For other types of nodes, returns empty iterator.
        Overrides:
        elements in class JsonNode
      • get

        public JsonNode get​(int index)
        Description copied from class: JsonNode
        Method for accessing value of the specified element of an array node. For other nodes, null is always returned.

        For array nodes, index specifies exact location within array and allows for efficient iteration over child elements (underlying storage is guaranteed to be efficiently indexable, i.e. has random-access to elements). If index is less than 0, or equal-or-greater than node.size(), null is returned; no exception is thrown for any index.

        NOTE: if the element value has been explicitly set as null (which is different from removal!), a NullNode will be returned, not null.

        Specified by:
        get in interface TreeNode
        Specified by:
        get in class ContainerNode<ObjectNode>
        Parameters:
        index - Index of the Array node element to access
        Returns:
        Node that represent value of the specified element, if this node is an array and has specified element. Null otherwise.
      • get

        public JsonNode get​(String fieldName)
        Description copied from class: JsonNode
        Method for accessing value of the specified field of an object node. If this node is not an object (or it does not have a value for specified field name), or if there is no field with such name, null is returned.

        NOTE: if the property value has been explicitly set as null (which is different from removal!), a NullNode will be returned, not null.

        Specified by:
        get in interface TreeNode
        Specified by:
        get in class ContainerNode<ObjectNode>
        Parameters:
        fieldName - Name of the field (of Object node) to access
        Returns:
        Node that represent value of the specified field, if this node is an object and has value for the specified field. Null otherwise.
      • fieldNames

        public Iterator<String> fieldNames()
        Description copied from interface: TreeNode
        Method for accessing names of all fields for this node, iff this node is an Object node. Number of field names accessible will be TreeNode.size().
        Specified by:
        fieldNames in interface TreeNode
        Overrides:
        fieldNames in class JsonNode
        Returns:
        An iterator for traversing names of all fields this Object node has (if Object node); empty Iterator otherwise (never null).
      • path

        public JsonNode path​(int index)
        Description copied from class: JsonNode
        This method is similar to JsonNode.get(int), except that instead of returning null if no such element exists (due to index being out of range, or this node not being an array), a "missing node" (node that returns true for JsonNode.isMissingNode()) will be returned. This allows for convenient and safe chained access via path calls.
        Specified by:
        path in interface TreeNode
        Specified by:
        path in class JsonNode
        Parameters:
        index - Index of the Array node element to access
        Returns:
        Node that represent value of the specified element, if this node is an array and has specified element; otherwise "missing node" is returned.
      • path

        public JsonNode path​(String fieldName)
        Description copied from class: JsonNode
        This method is similar to JsonNode.get(String), except that instead of returning null if no such value exists (due to this node not being an object, or object not having value for the specified field), a "missing node" (node that returns true for JsonNode.isMissingNode()) will be returned. This allows for convenient and safe chained access via path calls.
        Specified by:
        path in interface TreeNode
        Specified by:
        path in class JsonNode
        Parameters:
        fieldName - Name of the field (of Object node) to access
        Returns:
        Node that represent value of the specified field, if this node is an object and has value for the specified field; otherwise "missing node" is returned.
      • required

        public JsonNode required​(String fieldName)
        Description copied from class: JsonNode
        Method is functionally equivalent to path(fieldName).required() and can be used to check that this node is an ObjectNode (that is, represents JSON Object value) and has value for specified property with key fieldName (but note that value may be explicit JSON null value). If this node is Object Node and has value for specified property, matching value is returned; otherwise IllegalArgumentException is thrown.
        Overrides:
        required in class BaseJsonNode
        Parameters:
        fieldName - Name of property to access
        Returns:

        public ObjectNode with​(String propertyName)
        Description copied from class: JsonNode
        Method that can be called on Object nodes, to access a property that has Object value; or if no such property exists, to create, add and return such Object node. If the node method is called on is not Object node, or if property exists and has value that is not Object node, UnsupportedOperationException is thrown

        NOTE: since 2.10 has had co-variant return type

        Overrides:
        with in class JsonNode
      • withArray

        public ArrayNode withArray​(String propertyName)
        Description copied from class: JsonNode
        Method that can be called on Object nodes, to access a property that has Array value; or if no such property exists, to create, add and return such Array node. If the node method is called on is not Object node, or if property exists and has value that is not Array node, UnsupportedOperationException is thrown

        NOTE: since 2.10 has had co-variant return type

        Overrides:
        withArray in class JsonNode
      • equals

        public boolean equals​(Comparator<JsonNode> comparator,
                              JsonNode o)
        Description copied from class: JsonNode
        Entry method for invoking customizable comparison, using passed-in Comparator object. Nodes will handle traversal of structured types (arrays, objects), but defer to comparator for scalar value comparisons. If a "natural" Comparator is passed -- one that simply calls equals() on one of arguments, passing the other -- implementation is the same as directly calling equals() on node.

        Default implementation simply delegates to passed in comparator, with this as the first argument, and other as the second argument.

        Overrides:
        equals in class JsonNode
        Parameters:
        comparator - Object called to compare two scalar JsonNode instances, and return either 0 (are equals) or non-zero (not equal)

        public boolean equals​(Object o)
        Description copied from class: JsonNode
        Equality for node objects is defined as full (deep) value equality. This means that it is possible to compare complete JSON trees for equality by comparing equality of root nodes.

        Note: marked as abstract to ensure all implementation classes define it properly and not rely on definition from Object.
