bson4jackson 2.2 has just been released!
The latest release of bson4jackson now supports Jackson 2.2. Apart from that, Ben McCann and John Stoneham fixed the Maven dependencies and updated some 3rd party libraries, so project builds depending on bson4jackson should now be more stable. Thanks a lot for that, guys!
Projects using bson4jackson
bson4jackson is used in several other open-source projects including the following ones:
Jongo is a rather cool library that allows MongoDB to be queried in Java just like you would query it in the MongoDB shell. Jongo uses bson4jackson to serialize objects before they are sent to the database, and of course to deserialize queried documents.
MongoJack is a POJO mapper that uses Jackson and bson4jackson to serialize and deserialize objects before they are sent to the database. MongoJack is extremely fast and very easy to handle.
I know that there are a lot of other projects out there that use bson4jackson. If you want your project to be added to this list please leave a comment below or send me a message.
For a complete description of bson4jackson (including how to download it) have a look at my tutorial.

I’m thrilled to announce the first release of citeproc-java, a library to generate citations and bibliographies. It is similar to BibTeX but uses CSL under the hood and is therefore much more flexible.
This post introduces the open-source library bson4jackson, which is an extension to the Jackson JSON processor. It enables you to parse and generate documents in a binary JSON format called BSON.
This blog post summarizes the changes that came with the latest bson4jackson
updates. Highlights are support for
Decimal128, refactored serializers and
deserializers, as well as support for Jackson 2.8 and 2.9.
This version is a maintenance release that updates Jackson and fixes
some minor issues. Performance of the UTF-8 decoder has been improved
and precision of
BigDecimals has been increased. Updating is recommended
for all users.
