    From google I found a blog post showing how to convert objects to and from JSON located here: http://www.mkyong.com/java/how-do-co...rmat-gson-api/, this uses the GSon library.

    First result from a google search of "convert java object from json"

    Question still searching for solution

    Tnx much for ur reply,

    I have seen before that JSON convertion, but i think you didnt get me. I want my JSON object to be serialized on the Object (That object is declared from my class, usually this class contains other objects declaration and so on).
    In C# I have created several classes. Then i have one biggest class containing other objects. Then I use JsonConvert.Import to Map whole JSon object to my object. Want to do the same in Java.

    Do u have any idea how to do this?

    I think I understand what your getting (maybe), so let me do a quick example.

    You have 3 classes like:
    Code:
    public class PojoOne
    {
    	private int id;
    	private String name;
    	private PojoTwo pojoTwo;
    
    	// Constructors, Getters and Setters below
    }
    
    public class PojoTwo
    {
    	private int id;
    	private ArrayList<PojoThree> pojoThreeList;
    
    	// Constructors, Getters and Setters below
    }
    
    public class PojoThree
    {
    	private int id;
    	private String name;
    	private String attribute;
    
    	// Constructors, Getters and Setters below
    }
    So as like you said, I have one class PojoOne which contains PojoTwo and that contains an ArrayList of PojoThree classes.

    You can convert this to JSON and back to a PojoOne object (and all its sub objects) with Gson like so:
    Code:
    public class App 
    {
        public static void main( String[] args )
        {
            PojoOne pojoOne = new PojoOne();
            
            pojoOne.setId(0);
            pojoOne.setName("myPojoOne");
            
            pojoOne.getPojoTwo().setId(1);
            pojoOne.getPojoTwo().getPojoThreeList().add(new PojoThree(2, "myPojoThree0", "hello world"));
            pojoOne.getPojoTwo().getPojoThreeList().add(new PojoThree(3, "myPojoThree1", "bye world"));
            
            Gson gson = new Gson();
            String json = gson.toJson(pojoOne);
            
            PojoOne obj = gson.fromJson(json, PojoOne.class);
        }
    }
    And this maps it all perfectly back. (From this small example I've shown).

    Is this what you were asking?
