Description Philippe Mouawad 2018-12-23 21:51:51 UTC
JSON Smart default JSON provider of json-path is no more maintained.

We should switch to Jackson as underlying implementation:

Configuration.setDefaults(new Configuration.Defaults() {

    private final JsonProvider jsonProvider = new JacksonJsonProvider();
    private final MappingProvider mappingProvider = new JacksonMappingProvider();
    public JsonProvider jsonProvider() {
        return jsonProvider;

    public MappingProvider mappingProvider() {
        return mappingProvider;
    public Set<Option> options() {
        return EnumSet.noneOf(Option.class);
