Recently I came across a situation where I needed to be able to deserialize a decently complex custom domain object from JSON back into Java. The entity contained several collections of custom objects, and in some cases collections of interfaces to more custom implementations of domain objects. This is a quick cheat-sheet guide on how […]

At Alassian Summit this year, I attended a talk by Lucas Dussurget from Valiantys on implementing SLA’s with JSD.  Due to the short length of time allowed for the sessions this year, Lucas couldn’t possibly have the time to go into detail of how his excellent use case was implemented.
