Package org.codehaus.jackson.map.jsontype Description

Package that contains interfaces that define how to implement functionality for dynamically resolving type during deserialization. This is needed for complete handling of polymorphic types, where actual type can not be determined statically (declared type is a supertype of actual polymorphic serialized types).
