Subject [jira] [Created] (CLOUDSTACK-8708) Use Google Gson 2.3.1
Date Wed, 05 Aug 2015 13:30:05 GMT
Wido den Hollander created CLOUDSTACK-8708:

             Summary: Use Google Gson 2.3.1
                 Key: CLOUDSTACK-8708
             Project: CloudStack
          Issue Type: Improvement
      Security Level: Public (Anyone can view this level - this is the default.)
    Affects Versions: 4.6.0
            Reporter: Wido den Hollander
            Priority: Critical
             Fix For: 4.6.0

Currently CloudStack uses Google GSON 1.7.2 which is from 30-Sep-2011.

This is a outdated version. CLOUDSTACK-8677 (Call-Home feature) uses GSON 2.3.1 (20-Nov-2014)
which is not compatible with the current code.

The roadmap of Gson shows that since 2.0 there is a change in casting:

"Gson 2.0 doesn’t support type adapters for primitive types."

The "" test in "core" fails with the new Gson version
and this leads back to "ArrayTypeAdaptor" which does the serializing and de-serializing of
JSON to Objects and back.

Class<?> type = ((Class<?>)typeOfT).getComponentType();

Fails, since getComponentType() doesn't return

This seems to be a Java Reflection issue.
