  extended by org.codehaus.jackson.JsonNode
      extended by org.codehaus.jackson.node.BaseJsonNode
          extended by org.codehaus.jackson.node.ValueNode
              extended by org.codehaus.jackson.node.NullNode
All Implemented Interfaces:
Iterable<JsonNode>, JsonSerializable, JsonSerializableWithType

public final class NullNode
extends ValueNode

This singleton value class is used to contain explicit JSON null value.


Field Summary
static NullNode instance
           
 
Method Summary
 JsonToken asToken()
          Method that can be used for efficient type detection when using stream abstraction for traversing nodes.
 boolean equals(Object o)
           Note: marked as abstract to ensure all implementation classes define it properly.
static NullNode getInstance()
           
 String getValueAsText()
          Method that will return valid String representation of the container value, if the node is a value node (method JsonNode.isValueNode() returns true), otherwise null.
 boolean isNull()
          Method that can be used to check if this node was created from Json liternal null value.
 void serialize(JsonGenerator jg, SerializerProvider provider)
          Method called to serialize node instances using given generator.

Field Detail

instance

public static final NullNode instance
Method Detail

getInstance

public static NullNode getInstance()

asToken

public JsonToken asToken()
Description copied from class: BaseJsonNode
Method that can be used for efficient type detection when using stream abstraction for traversing nodes. Will return the first JsonToken that equivalent stream event would produce (for most nodes there is just one token but for structured/container types multiple)

Specified by:
asToken in class ValueNode

isNull

public boolean isNull()
Description copied from class: JsonNode
Method that can be used to check if this node was created from Json liternal null value.

Overrides:
isNull in class JsonNode

getValueAsText

public String getValueAsText()
Description copied from class: JsonNode
Method that will return valid String representation of the container value, if the node is a value node (method JsonNode.isValueNode() returns true), otherwise null.

Note: to serialize nodes of any type, you should call JsonNode.toString() instead.

Specified by:
getValueAsText in class JsonNode

serialize

public final void serialize(JsonGenerator jg,
                            SerializerProvider provider)
                     throws IOException,
                            JsonProcessingException
Description copied from class: BaseJsonNode
Method called to serialize node instances using given generator.

Specified by:
serialize in interface JsonSerializable
Specified by:
serialize in class BaseJsonNode
Throws:
IOException
JsonProcessingException

equals

public boolean equals(Object o)
Description copied from class: JsonNode

Note: marked as abstract to ensure all implementation classes define it properly.

Specified by:
equals in class JsonNode
