These is achieved by using one of 2 mechanisms:

So either:

  ObjectMapper mapper = new ObjectMapper();
  // Jackson 2.x OR
  mapper.setSerializationInclusion(JsonInclude.Include.NON_NULL); // no more null-valued properties
  // Jackson 1.x
  mapper.getSerializationConfig().setSerializationInclusion(JsonSerialize.Inclusion.NON_NULL); // no more null-valued properties


  public class MyBean {
    // ... only serialize properties with values other than what they default to
