It would be so much easier if Java SE had an official JSON implementation. The closest is JSON-P, which was intended for inclusion in Java SE but instead is officially part of Java EE. Each library has its pluses and minuses, which makes it difficult to choose. I like Jackson because it supports converting XML to JSON. Unfortunately, lack of time prevented my discussing this feature in the book. However, I will be discussing this feature as part of an upcoming blog post for my JavaWorld Java Q&A blog.

Hi Jeff Friesen,
You are right, it would be nice to have a kind of official JSON specification.
I like Jackson too, specially because the Spring support of Jackson.
Hope we can compare the other alternatives in your book.
