How to enable pretty printing in Google gson APIs?


This page shows how to enable pretty printing in Google gson APIs.

Note: Refer How to convert java object to json string using Gson APIs? page for dependent libraries.

Here is the example to enable pretty printing in Google gson APIs:

package com.java2novice.json.gson;

import java.util.HashMap;
import java.util.Map;

import com.google.gson.Gson;
import com.google.gson.GsonBuilder;

public class MapToJsonEx {

	public static void main(String a[]){
		
		Map<String, String> inputMap = new HashMap<String, String>();
		inputMap.put("name", "Java2Novice");
		inputMap.put("site", "http://java2novice.com");
		// convert map to JSON String
		// notice that we enabled pretty printing in the below line
		Gson gsonObj = new GsonBuilder().setPrettyPrinting().create();
		String jsonStr = gsonObj.toJson(inputMap);
		System.out.println(jsonStr);
	}
}

Output:
{
  "site": "http://java2novice.com",
  "name": "Java2Novice"
}

When to use LinkedList or ArrayList?
Accessing elements are faster with ArrayList, because it is index based. But accessing is difficult with LinkedList. It is slow access. This is to access any element, you need to navigate through the elements one by one. But insertion and deletion is much faster with LinkedList, because if you know the node, just change the pointers before or after nodes. Insertion and deletion is slow with ArrayList, this is because, during these operations ArrayList need to adjust the indexes according to deletion or insetion if you are performing on middle indexes. Means, an ArrayList having 10 elements, if you are inserting at index 5, then you need to shift the indexes above 5 to one more.
