Depends upon the use case: In more "structured" situations in which we 
try having more or less accurate mappings of Java objects to JSON 
documents, we have recently discovered and adopted ektorp and found this 
to be rather mature and painless to get the job done. In less 
"structured" situations or in applications in which the amount of third 
party dependencies should be reduced to a minimum, we usually make use 
of some sort of HTTP client (apache commons, or the Jersey/JAX-RS client 
libs) and the svenson JSON lib to get the job done which also works 
pretty well. Overally, comparing to communicating with other 
infrastructure (including SQL DB backends), we have explicitely found 
the option to communicate with CouchDB without being forced to use 
certain client libraries to be one of the outstanding features of this 
approach. :)
