Subject Re: Set timezone in jsonwriter for date conversion
Date Thu, 05 Nov 2015 00:05:02 GMT

   Let me clarify the issue I have. I would like to be able to customize
the way the JSON plugin formats the date when converting an objecto to
json. Specifically, when I'm returning a JSONResult to a client. In order
to do that I need to modify the DateFormatter used by JSONWriter so I can
change its timezone. I took a look at the code, and it seems that make that
modification is going to be hard. It would be something like this:

  Extend JSONWriter to be able to use timezone with a Date(Maybe receiving
the timezone as a parameter, or using annotation at the field level)
  Extend JSONUtil to call my custom JSONWriter.
  Extend JSONResult to call my customer JSONUtil, by overriding the method
createJSONString. This would pretty much imply copy the whole code, as the
method has a bunch of dependences from private variables when calling

Can anyone suggest a better approach?
