Annotation Type JsonPropertyOrder


@Target(value=TYPE)
@Retention(value=RUNTIME)
public @interface JsonPropertyOrder

Annotation that can be used to define ordering (possibly partial) to use when serializing object properties. Properties included in annotation declaration will be serialized first (in defined order), followed by any properties not included in the definition. Annotation definition will override any implicit orderings (such as guarantee that Creator-properties are serialized before non-creator properties)

Examples:

  // ensure that "id" and "name" are output before other properties
  \@JsonPropertyOrder({ "id", "name" })
  // order any properties that don't have explicit setting using alphabetic order
  \@JsonPropertyOrder(alphabetic=true)

This annotation has no effect on deserialization.
