Subject [jira] [Commented] (FELIX-5332) Serializer
Date Wed, 24 Aug 2016 15:30:23 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-5332?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15435109#comment-15435109

David Leangen commented on FELIX-5332:

Hmmm. Maybe I should not have acted so quickly.

I am finding that this is more difficult than I'd thought because of generic types. If there
is a generic type nested deep in the structure, it gets deserialised as a Map, which causes
a ClassCastException in the client code. This leads me to believe that the _metadata information
may be necessary for all generic types.

I'll experiment a bit more.
