For cross reference, readers will likely find it useful to also have the Gson user guide open in another browser window. (An archive of the Gson user guide as of 2011.06.26 is available at https://sites.google.com/site/programmerbruce/downloads/Gson_User_Guide_2011.06.26.zip.)

This information is based on Gson release 1.7.1 and Jackson release 1.8.2.
