Jackson API - JSON String To Object In Java


A quick guide to converting JSON String to Object using Jackson API in Java. Example on Customer string json to Customer Object.

1. Introduction

In this tutorial, We'll learn how to convert or transform JSON into a Java Object using Jackson API. This can be achieved in many ways using Jackson api and other GSON, JSONParser API.


String jsonString = "
  "name": "nadal",
  "age": "35",
  "gender": "M"

This class needs to be converted to a Customer object.

Maven dependency:

<!-- https://mvnrepository.com/artifact/com.fasterxml.jackson.core/jackson-core -->

2. Create a Customer class

JSON is in string format and needs to be converted into a Customer object. First, let us create a Customer class with all attributes that JSON string has as below.

package com.java.w3schools.blog.java.program.to.jackson;

public class Customer {

 private String name;
 private int age;
 private String gender;

 public String getName() {
  return name;

 public void setName(String name) {
  this.name = name;

 public int getAge() {
  return age;

 public void setAge(int age) {
  this.age = age;

 public String getGender() {
  return gender;

 public void setGender(String gender) {
  this.gender = gender;


3. Converting JSON to Customer Object

Jackson API is provided with a set of classes and methods that can be used in json to java instances such as ObjectWrapper class and readValueAsString() methods.

package com.java.w3schools.blog.java.program.to.jackson;

import org.codehaus.jackson.map.ObjectMapper;

public class JSONToObjectJava {

 public static void main(String[] args) {

  String jsonString = "{    
   \"name\": \"nadal\",    
   \"age\": \"35\",
   \"gender\": \"M\" 

  ObjectMapper objectWriter = new ObjectMapper();
  Customer customer = objectWriter.readValue(jsonString, Customer.class);
  System.out.println("customer name : "+customer.getName());



customer name : nadal

4. Conclusion
