Subject [jira] [Commented] (CXF-5072) Add capability in Jettison to default the namespace
Date Sun, 09 Jun 2013 18:13:20 GMT


Sergey Beryozkin commented on CXF-5072:

I'm afraid not and I apologize I did not get what exactly you were after. Neither JSONProvider
nor Jettison understand how a given object representation is qualified, it can not optimize
smartly the way you suggest. 

I can only recommend you try and register a custom XMLStreamWriter, this is easy to do, for
example look at a custom writer in

You can register it by extending JSONProvider

In this provider, you can use the domain knowledge and block namespaces on certain elements
XMLStreamReader can similarly be added

> When using Jettison, it would be preferable to configure Jettison to allow for the namespace
to be the same as what was last used.  For example, attached is a simple user object that
has a long namespace name.  I can use Jettison to alias the namespace to something shorter
but I still need to fully-qualify all members of the user object in JSON for Jettison to properly
marshal all of the fields to the java object.
> For example:
> {"user.user":{"user-role.user-role":{"":"admin"},"user.username":"fred","user.first-name":"Fred",
> What is preferable is:
> {"user.user":{"user-role.user-role":{"name":"admin"},"username":"fred","first-name":"Fred",
> In this case, the beginning of a new namespace is used for objects that need it.  After
the object is defined, the namespace reverts to the previous namespace.
> Output is fine since the "ignoreNamespace" strips all namespaces and the resulting JSON
> {"user":{"user-role":{"name":"admin"},"username":"fred","first-name":"Fred","last-name":"Person"}}
> Note that the attachments have been edited to remove proprietary information and probably
will not compile by themselves.
