YAML and JAVA Configuration

Below are Tools which support YAML for JAVA API’s. Here I will focus only on SnakeYAML which widely used by industry.

  • JvYaml
  • SnakeYAML
  • YamlBeans
  • JYaml

SnakeYAML Configuration





For any operation with SnakeYAML api’s you have to use below steps:
package :


Yaml yaml = new Yaml();

Loading YAML :

  • yaml.load(String) accepts a String.
  • yaml.load(InputStream) accepts a InputStream.

yaml.load(InputStream) detects the encoding by checking the BOM (byte order mark) sequence at the beginning of streams. If no BOM presents the utf-8 encoding is assumed..
