Bug#769224: ITP: noggit -- Fast streaming JSON parser for Java

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Emmanuel Bourg <ebourg@apache.org>

* Package name    : noggit
  Version         : 0.6
  Upstream Author : Yonik Seeley <yseeley@gmail.com>
* URL             : http://github.com/yonik/noggit
* License         : Apache-2.0
  Programming Lang: Java
  Description     : Fast streaming JSON parser for Java

Noggit is the world's fastest streaming JSON parser for Java.
* Fast! Measured as the fastest JSON parser on char[], String input.
* Streaming API (StAX/pull-parser like) for both easy and efficient parsing
* Conforms to the JSON standard: http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4627.txt
* Memory efficiency
   * incremental parsing (Reader-based) in order to handle huge messages
   * a single byte of state needed per nested object or array
   * does not read large objects (including primitives) completely
     into memory unless asked
   * can eliminate most copying, allowing the user to provide
     the output buffer for values
* can handle primitives of any size (does not attempt to parse
  numerics into a certain language primitives unless asked)
* Simple serialization of objects (List, Map, etc)
* Optional creation of objects (List, Map, etc) when parsing.

This library is a dependency of Gerrit.
