I wish did fix the issue. My solution was a tiered one.
First, the discovery that Moxy just doesn't do maps was frightening, but rather reliving once I found that the be the issue. So I had to change my default serializer from Moxy to Jackson. This was done easily by changing the pom.xml:

Parsing JSON without Object Mapping in Restkit iOS

like below fixes the issue You can simply call parsedBody:nil on your RKResponse object and assign the returned object to an NSDictionary:
responseDict = [response parsedBody:nil];
- (bool) wasRequestSuccessfulWithResponse:(RKResponse*)response {

    bool isSuccessfulResponse = NO; 

    id parsedResponse;

    NSDictionary *responseDict;

    if(response != nil) {

        parsedResponse = [response parsedBody:nil];

        if ([parsedResponse isKindOfClass:[NSDictionary class]]) {

            responseDict = [response parsedBody:nil];

            if([[responseDict objectForKey:@"success"] boolValue]) {

                isSuccessfulResponse = YES;


    return isSuccessfulResponse;


Parsing JSON with dynamic properties

Hope that helps It looks like the issue is in the NameserversOnIPAddressResult class definition. Its ip_dns property should be directly of type Dictionary. (This is for the same reason that the items property of CheckedServer is correctly a Dictionary type.)
Although I haven't manually verified this, I believe the affected code should look like:
public class NameserversOnIPAddressResult
    public Dictionary<string, CheckedServer> ip_dns { get; set; }

Parsing JSON Object with variable properties into strongly typed object

fixed the issue. Will look into that further If you must have strongly typed result I would deserialize Profile as a dictionary of superposition of properties
class AbscdeClass
    public string A { get; set; }
    public string B { get; set; }
    public string C { get; set; }
    public string D { get; set; }
    public string E { get; set; }

class JsonBody
    public Dictionary<string, AbscdeClass> Profile { get; set; }
JsonBody json = JsonConvert.DeserializeObject<JsonBody>(jsonString);

Light weight jar to achieve both JSON parsing & object mapping

Tag : java , By : AnthonyC

will be helpful for those in need I checked gson & found both Parsing & Object Mapping are achiveved using it.
Parsing :
JsonArray jArray = new JsonParser().parse(json1).getAsJsonArray();

for (int j = 0; j < jArray.size(); j++) {
    JsonObject jObject = jArray.get(j).getAsJsonObject();
    String url = jObject.getAsJsonObject("details").get("url").getAsString();
JsonObject jObject = new JsonParser().parse(json2).getAsJsonObject();
Gson gson = new Gson();
UserDetail userDetail = gson.fromJson(jObject.toString(), UserDetail.class);

Handling unknown Json properties when mapping Json object to POJO

Tag : java , By : Cowtung

it fixes the issue This requires a special post-processing type adapter that can do both deserialization and collecting unknown properties. I would do it similar to the following.
The following interface is a sort of a bridge between a real object and the type adapter. Nothing special here.
interface IUnknownPropertiesConsumer {

    void acceptUnknownProperties(JsonObject jsonObject);

final class MyClass
        implements IUnknownPropertiesConsumer {

    final String sub = null;
    final String iss = null;
    transient JsonObject customProperties;

    public void acceptUnknownProperties(final JsonObject customProperties) {
        this.customProperties = customProperties;

final class UnknownPropertiesTypeAdapterFactory
        implements TypeAdapterFactory {

    private static final TypeAdapterFactory instance = new UnknownPropertiesTypeAdapterFactory();

    private UnknownPropertiesTypeAdapterFactory() {

    static TypeAdapterFactory get() {
        return instance;

    public <T> TypeAdapter<T> create(final Gson gson, final TypeToken<T> typeToken) {
        // Check if we can deal with the given type
        if ( !IUnknownPropertiesConsumer.class.isAssignableFrom(typeToken.getRawType()) ) {
            return null;
        // If we can, we should get the backing class to fetch its fields from
        final Class<IUnknownPropertiesConsumer> rawType = (Class<IUnknownPropertiesConsumer>) typeToken.getRawType();
        final TypeAdapter<IUnknownPropertiesConsumer> delegateTypeAdapter = (TypeAdapter<IUnknownPropertiesConsumer>) gson.getDelegateAdapter(this, typeToken);
        // Excluder is necessary to check if the field can be processed
        // Basically it's not required, but it makes the check more complete 
        final Excluder excluder = gson.excluder();
        // This is crucial to map fields and JSON object properties since Gson supports name remapping
        final FieldNamingStrategy fieldNamingStrategy = gson.fieldNamingStrategy();
        final TypeAdapter<IUnknownPropertiesConsumer> unknownPropertiesTypeAdapter = UnknownPropertiesTypeAdapter.create(rawType, delegateTypeAdapter, excluder, fieldNamingStrategy);
        final TypeAdapter<T> castTypeAdapter = (TypeAdapter<T>) unknownPropertiesTypeAdapter;
        return castTypeAdapter;

    private static final class UnknownPropertiesTypeAdapter<T extends IUnknownPropertiesConsumer>
            extends TypeAdapter<T> {

        private final TypeAdapter<T> typeAdapter;
        private final Collection<String> propertyNames;

        private UnknownPropertiesTypeAdapter(final TypeAdapter<T> typeAdapter, final Collection<String> propertyNames) {
            this.typeAdapter = typeAdapter;
            this.propertyNames = propertyNames;

        private static <T extends IUnknownPropertiesConsumer> TypeAdapter<T> create(final Class<? super T> clazz, final TypeAdapter<T> typeAdapter,
                final Excluder excluder, final FieldNamingStrategy fieldNamingStrategy) {
            final Collection<String> propertyNames = getPropertyNames(clazz, excluder, fieldNamingStrategy);
            return new UnknownPropertiesTypeAdapter<>(typeAdapter, propertyNames);

        public void write(final JsonWriter out, final T value)
                throws IOException {
            typeAdapter.write(out, value);

        public T read(final JsonReader in) {
            // JsonParser holds no state so instantiation is a bit excessive, but Gson may change in the future
            final JsonParser jsonParser = new JsonParser();
            // In its simplest solution, we can just collect a JSON tree because its much easier to process
            final JsonObject jsonObjectToParse = jsonParser.parse(in).getAsJsonObject();
            final JsonObject unknownProperties = new JsonObject();
            for ( final Map.Entry<String, JsonElement> e : jsonObjectToParse.entrySet() ) {
                final String propertyName = e.getKey();
                // No in the object fields?
                if ( !propertyNames.contains(propertyName) ) {
                    // Then we assume the property is unknown
                    unknownProperties.add(propertyName, e.getValue());
            // First convert the above JSON tree to an object
            final T object = typeAdapter.fromJsonTree(jsonObjectToParse);
            // And do the post-processing
            return object;

        private static Collection<String> getPropertyNames(final Class<?> clazz, final Excluder excluder, final FieldNamingStrategy fieldNamingStrategy) {
            final Collection<String> propertyNames = new ArrayList<>();
            // Class fields are declared per class so we have to traverse the whole hierarachy
            for ( Class<?> i = clazz; i.getSuperclass() != null && i != Object.class; i = i.getSuperclass() ) {
                for ( final Field declaredField : i.getDeclaredFields() ) {
                    // If the class field is not excluded
                    if ( !excluder.excludeField(declaredField, false) ) {
                        // We can translate the field name to its property name counter-part
                        final String propertyName = fieldNamingStrategy.translateName(declaredField);
            return propertyNames;
