Hi,

I've been writing a Rest service using Jackson to extract the name and sizeFromStorage inside the response value.

I created the below classes in an attempt to do this:



The output I get from this is:
[[{vaults=[{id=20, name=Apple, description=, sizeFromStorage=95957225298, storagePools=[{storagePool={id=1, name=storage-pool1, sizeFromStorage=5043, estimateUsableTotalLogicalSizeFromStorage=95957225298, generations=[{generation={sequence=0}}]}}]}, {id=20, name=Apple, description=, sizeFromStorage=95957225298, storagePools=[{storagePool={id=1, name=storage-pool1, sizeFromStorage=5043, estimateUsableTotalLogicalSizeFromStorage=95957225298, generations=[{generation={sequence=0}}]}}]}]]

However, what I want to do is the name and sizeFromStorage values. So far I've managed to strip out the first three values. Unfortunately I'm now stuck as I'm not very familiar with Rest services or reading JSON. Is there any way I can delve further into the JSON to get what I need or have I approached this in the wrong way?

Cheerrs
Paul

The goal is to create a new Java Class for JSON String.

1. Read JSON format.  http://www.json.org/
2. See if you can understand your Json data format and create a Java class for it. (That's the goal.)
3. Then deSerialize your Json data into the Java object (Java class created in 2.)
This is what you tried in your code.    

Try again point 1 and 2.
