Thanks - will try that.   Just included the Jackson jar but that didn't make it.

One last question - don't mean to eat up all your time - but your statement,  
"But you are right, Jettison produces different JSON."  How that be?  Isn't 
JSON a spec such that there should be consistent output for a set of data?

Just don't include the jettison module and include all the jackson stuff.  
Should work.
