Hi,

I have developed Restful service using RESTEasy framework and Jackson for json response.

I am using data layer to return plain POJO class object(setters and getters), which gets returned from REST service as JSON.

My question is:
How to modify/filter response (without modifying POJO), to send back only few fields based on condition and not all fields of the POJO.

Thanks in advance,
Nikesh

Maybe use another POJO class that is created from the one that has too many fields, and copy those fields to it that you want to transfer.

Thanks for the quick response.

Actually I am looking for a solution to avoid creating more POJOs if dynamically fields can be excluded.

Search for "jackson custom serialization"; you'll have to do some extra effort in that case.

Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
