Jackson Support

Spring Security provides Jackson support for persisting Spring Security-related classes. This can improve the performance of serializing Spring Security-related classes when working with distributed sessions (session replication, Spring Session, and so on).

ObjectMapper mapper = new ObjectMapper();
ClassLoader loader = getClass().getClassLoader();
List<Module> modules = SecurityJackson2Modules.getModules(loader);

// ... use ObjectMapper as normally ...
SecurityContext context = new SecurityContextImpl();
// ...
String json = mapper.writeValueAsString(context);

The following Spring Security modules provide Jackson support:
