 package com.fasterxml.jackson.core;

Marker interface used to denote JSON Tree nodes, as far as the core package knows them (which is very little): mostly needed to allow ObjectCodec to have some level of interoperability. All real functionality is within JsonNode base class in mapper package.

Note that in Jackson 1.x JsonNode itself was part of core package: Jackson 2.x refactored this since conceptually Tree Model is part of mapper package, and so part visible to core package should be minimized.

public interface TreeNode

Method that can be used for efficient type detection when using stream abstraction for traversing nodes. Will return the first JsonToken that equivalent stream event would produce (for most nodes there is just one token but for structured/container types multiple)
    JsonToken asToken();

    
If this node is a numeric type (as per JsonToken.isNumeric()), returns native type that node uses to store the numeric value; otherwise returns null.

Returns:
Type of number contained, if any; or null if node does not contain numeric value.

Method for constructing a JsonParser instance for iterating over contents of the tree that this node is root of. Functionally equivalent to first serializing tree using ObjectCodec and then re-parsing but more efficient.
