15.2. Custom Objects

Custom (application-defined) objects that are stored as the content of the message or property of the exchange context, are not required to implement This is because SwitchYard does not use the JDK's default object serialization mechanism. It traverses the object graph, extracting the properties along the way, and stores the values in its own graph representation, which by default is serialized to/from the JSON format. For this to work, custom objects must follow one of the following two rules:
  • Adhere to the JavaBeans specification. This means a public, no arg constructor, and public getter/setter pairs for every property you want serialized. If you follow this rule, your custom objects do not require any compilation dependencies on SwitchYard.
  • Use SwitchYard annotations to define your serialization strategy.
