    Resteasy: Object to JSON upper case?

    Ben Meyer Newbie

      Hi Guys,

      I am pretty new to Resteasy and everything that belongs to it and I

      have a tiny problem that sounds actually pretty easy to fix but I was not able to...

      I have a JavaScript library which is expecting a capitalized JSON node.

      Unfortunately I am not able to make any changes in that library so I need to

      figure out a way, to fix this problem in the java part. I don't have anything fancy,

      just 2 classes like this:


      public class Body {
        private String def;
        private List<Employee> employees;
        public String getDef() {
          return def;
        public void setDef(String def) {
          this.def = def;
        public List<Employee> getItems() {
          return employees;
        public void setItems(List<Employee> items) {
          employees = items;




      public class Employee {
        private String name;
        public String getName() {
          return name;
        public void setName(String name) {
          this.name = name;


      The final JSON Code looks like this:

      {"body":{"def":"Task","items":[{"name":"Test Name"}]}}


      but I want it to look like this:

      {"Body":{"Def":"Task","Items":[{"name":"Test Name"}]}}


      Is there any way to handle this problem? Any annotation for renaming the nodes maybe?


      Regards and thanks in advance
