  • Jackson, moshi or kotlinx.serialization?

    Jackson's learning curve is a lot lower (it helps that it's older and more popular, so there's more guides online), and it has a lot more options. However, Jackson doesn't fully support Kotlin, for example: value classes. For this reason, I would avoid it.

    strictNullCheck option in the Kotlin module doesn't cover non-object-field situations at all. https://github.com/FasterXML/jackson-module-kotlin/issues/479

    You should add Jackson Module Kotlin in your project. After that, you can't specify a type of object explicitly.

    Not really, you just need to handle some standard types and have a good extension mechanism to let the user implement factories. That library having built in support for UUID and datetime is probably a bit much, I'd prefer a plugin like https://github.com/FasterXML/jackson-module-kotlin

    There is a bug at this very moment that makes it literally impossible to deserialize [1, 2, 3, null] into a List with Jackson's Kotlin module. Yes- even if you set KotlinModule(strictNullChecks = true). It's just broken. (Here's the link: https://github.com/FasterXML/jackson-module-kotlin/issues/479)

    Got you, thanks. I didn’t mean to sound offensive - a better wording would be that they don’t seem to prioritize this part, at least based on https://github.com/FasterXML/jackson-module-kotlin/issues/199, which has one abandoned branch from a 3rd party and a couple of comments from from maintainers.
