Proposal State

Move the implementation of the Jakarta JSON Processing specification out from the specification project repository/project.


Eclipse Parsson is an implementation of Jakarta JSON Processing Specification.


Eclipse Parsson provides an implementation of Jakarta JSON Processing Specification. It allows processing (e.g. parse, generate, transform and query) JSON documents. It produces and consumes JSON in a streaming fashion (similar to StAX API for XML) and allows to build a Java object model for JSON using API classes (similar to DOM API for XML).

Why Here?

The project is currently part of EE4J

Project Scheduling

Intent is to have first release availble by end of May/mid June 2021 (sooner is better). Next release is planned for Jakarta EE 10. There may be service releases for the initial release before Jakarta EE 10 goes live. Afterwards Jakarta EE releases are to be followed.

Future Work

Implementent new features/functionality added to Jakarta JSON Processing Specification

Initial Contribution

Source code is to be taken from the repository
