I like it.

Also like it.

What do you mean by lazily parse the JSON?

Some notes:

   - The JSON parser is a single-pass parser with no intermediate DOM.  It
   parses directly into POJOs.
   - The attributes in the JSON could be arbitrarily ordered.
   - The attributes in the JSON could be incomplete (e.g. some properties
   passed to the constructor end up being null).

Take the following example...

// Constructor with 3 properties
public MyBean(int a, String b, MyOtherBean c);

// An additional property.
public String setD(String d);

// Incoming JSON
   d: "bar",
   c: {...},
   a: 123

In this case, we don't create an instance of MyBean until we've found a, b,
and c.  And we cannot call setD() on the bean until it's been
instantiated.  So until we've found all the constructor properties,
everything gets stored in a temporary hashmap.  As soon as we find a/b/c,
we instantiate it and start calling setters directly.

Since the JSON in this case doesn't contain 'b', the bean instantiation is
delayed until the very end.

Beans with only setters/getters don't have to deal with this delayed
