If you are using Jackson 2.5, it is possible 4 to access parent object via
JsonGenerator.getCurrentValue(). Or, further 3 up the hierarchy, going via
getOutputContext() (which has 2
getParent() as well as
This is also available 1 through
JsonParser for custom deserializer.
For deserialization, where you don't have 2 access to the
JsonGenerator object. The following worked 1 for me:
JsonStreamContext parsingContext = jsonParser.getParsingContext(); JsonStreamContext parent = parsingContext.getParent(); Object currentValue = parent.getCurrentValue();
Note: getCurrentValue will be null if you 5 are using custom serialization
I worked around 4 this by setting the parent object into the 3 child's serializer instance and then accessing 2 it when the child's serializer was called 1 by jackson.
