I didn’t use this one, I had to write my own mapper… this looks promising;
This scenario isn’t currently supported with the PojoCodec. It might be achievable via a custom Convention but that would require some intense manipulation of the ClassModel and PropertyModel implementations.
It could be simpler to use a custom Codec / CodecProvider for this scenario.
Thanks for answers. I have managed this but it required copying literally whole org.bson.codecs.pojo.* package to add tiny modifications. Default pojo implementation is impossible to extend because of scopes and finals.
Would you consider making a PR or filing a ticket and sharing the code as the basis for the start of the work? Its a good way to help extend the library and add new features.
Sure, I will work on that, in the upcoming weekend hopefully.
