    Comparing JSON object against JAVA object for equality


    I have a JAVA object. Its a very complex object with lots of nested hierarchies with a total of 50 classes.
    Applying straight away the JSON or Jackson library to the JAVA class has not given successful results so I have made the
    custom converted and successfully converted the java object to json(using JSON and Jackson).
    At times, I have to define a new property with same name as interface in json for interfaces since we don't have interfaces in json/javascript

    How can I compare my generated JSON object with the JAVA object for equality and ensure that no properties etc are missed?

    If you're looking for some automated way to compare an arbitrary Java object and JSON object I don't think you're going to find one.
