Subject [jira] [Created] (ZEST-102) Custom (de)serialization mapping
Date Thu, 16 Jul 2015 11:39:04 GMT
Niclas Hedhman created ZEST-102:

             Summary: Custom (de)serialization mapping
                 Key: ZEST-102
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZEST-102
             Project: Zest
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Niclas Hedhman

Currently the Serialization subsystems are expecting that the deserializer is reading the
serializer's output, and what the format is, is largely out of interest.

But often, one wants better control of both input and output of the serialization system,
so that foreign protocols can easily be supported, without writing the serialization from
scratch for those cases.

Inspiration should probably be found in Jackson, and perhaps(!) the answer is more about providing
a Zest-adapted plugin to Jackson and then use Jackson internally everywhere in Zest. In any
event, the fact that Jackson can be extended in all kinds of fashion, should serve as the
blue print for how Zest achieves something similar.
