Class that registers capability of serializing
org.threeten.bp objects with the Jackson core.
ObjectMapper mapper = new ObjectMapper();
org.threeten.bp types are serialized as numbers (integers or decimals as appropriate) if the
com.fasterxml.jackson.databind.SerializationFeature#WRITE_DATES_AS_TIMESTAMPS feature is enabled, and otherwise are serialized in
standard ISO-8601 string representation. ISO-8601 specifies formats
for representing offset dates and times, zoned dates and times, local dates and times, periods, durations, zones, and more. All
org.threeten.bp types have built-in translation to and from ISO-8601 formats.
Granularity of timestamps is controlled through the companion features
com.fasterxml.jackson.databind.DeserializationFeature#READ_DATE_TIMESTAMPS_AS_NANOSECONDS. For serialization, timestamps are
written as fractional numbers (decimals), where the number is seconds and the decimal is fractional seconds, if
WRITE_DATE_TIMESTAMPS_AS_NANOSECONDS is enabled (it is by default), with resolution as fine as nanoseconds depending on the
underlying JDK implementation. If
WRITE_DATE_TIMESTAMPS_AS_NANOSECONDS is disabled, timestamps are written as a whole number of
milliseconds. At deserialization time, decimal numbers are always read as fractional second timestamps with up-to-nanosecond resolution,
since the meaning of the decimal is unambiguous. The more ambiguous integer types are read as fractional seconds without a decimal point
READ_DATE_TIMESTAMPS_AS_NANOSECONDS is enabled (it is by default), and otherwise they are read as milliseconds.
Some exceptions to this standard serialization/deserialization rule:
Period, which always results in an ISO-8601 format because Periods must be represented in years, months, and/or days.
Year, which only contains a year and cannot be represented with a timestamp.
YearMonth, which only contains a year and a month and cannot be represented with a timestamp.
MonthDay, which only contains a month and a day and cannot be represented with a timestamp.
ZoneOffset, which do not actually store dates and times but are supported with this module nonetheless.
OffsetTime, which cannot portably be converted to timestamps
and are instead represented as arrays when WRITE_DATES_AS_TIMESTAMPS is enabled.
