I have multiple Java bean classes that are associated to each other (JSON Array + JSON Object) since they have a nested structure. There are about 10 classes. I had created these classes out of a JSON data which I don't have access to right now. So, now, what I'm looking forward is to create a dummy JSON out of those classes. Using GSON, I tried converting one of these Bean classes however, I got an empty result. Here is one of the beans called Attachment.java.

Attachment.java

The fourth bullet point explains how null fields are handled.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
