Class MinimalPrettyPrinter

java.lang.Object
  extended by org.codehaus.jackson.util.MinimalPrettyPrinter
All Implemented Interfaces:
PrettyPrinter

public class MinimalPrettyPrinter
extends Object
implements PrettyPrinter

PrettyPrinter implementation that adds no indentation, just implements everything necessary for value output to work as expected, and provide simpler extension points to allow for creating simple custom implementations that add specific decoration or overrides. Since behavior then is very similar to using no pretty printer at all, usually sub-classes are used.

Beyond purely minimal implementation, there is limited amount of configurability which may be useful for actual use: for example, it is possible to redefine separator used between root-level values (default is single space; can be changed to line-feed).

Since:
1.6

setRootValueSeparator

writeRootValueSeparator

public void writeRootValueSeparator(JsonGenerator jg)
                             throws IOException,
                                    JsonGenerationException
Description copied from interface: PrettyPrinter
Method called after a root-level value has been completely output, and before another value is to be output.

Default handling (without pretty-printing) will output a space, to allow values to be parsed correctly. Pretty-printer is to output some other suitable and nice-looking separator (tab(s), space(s), linefeed(s) or any combination thereof).

Specified by:
writeRootValueSeparator in interface PrettyPrinter
Throws:
IOException
JsonGenerationException

writeStartObject

public void writeStartObject(JsonGenerator jg)
                      throws IOException,
                             JsonGenerationException
Description copied from interface: PrettyPrinter
Method called when an Object value is to be output, before any fields are output.

Default handling (without pretty-printing) will output the opening curly bracket. Pretty-printer is to output a curly bracket as well, but can surround that with other (white-space) decoration.

Specified by:
writeStartObject in interface PrettyPrinter
Throws:
IOException
JsonGenerationException

beforeObjectEntries

public void beforeObjectEntries(JsonGenerator jg)
                         throws IOException,
                                JsonGenerationException
Description copied from interface: PrettyPrinter
Method called after object start marker has been output, and right before the field name of the first entry is to be output. It is not called for objects without entries.

Default handling does not output anything, but pretty-printer is free to add any white space decoration.

Specified by:
beforeObjectEntries in interface PrettyPrinter
Throws:
IOException
JsonGenerationException

writeObjectFieldValueSeparator

public void writeObjectFieldValueSeparator(JsonGenerator jg)
                                    throws IOException,
                                           JsonGenerationException
Method called after an object field has been output, but before the value is output.

Default handling will just output a single colon to separate the two, without additional spaces.

Specified by:
writeObjectFieldValueSeparator in interface PrettyPrinter
Throws:
IOException
JsonGenerationException

writeObjectEntrySeparator

public void writeObjectEntrySeparator(JsonGenerator jg)
                               throws IOException,
                                      JsonGenerationException
Method called after an object entry (field:value) has been completely output, and before another value is to be output.

Default handling (without pretty-printing) will output a single comma to separate the two.

Specified by:
writeObjectEntrySeparator in interface PrettyPrinter
Throws:
IOException
JsonGenerationException

writeEndObject

public void writeEndObject(JsonGenerator jg,
                           int nrOfEntries)

                           JsonGenerationException
Description copied from interface: PrettyPrinter
Method called after an Object value has been completely output (minus closing curly bracket).

Default handling (without pretty-printing) will output the closing curly bracket. Pretty-printer is to output a curly bracket as well, but can surround that with other (white-space) decoration.

Specified by:
writeEndObject in interface PrettyPrinter
