Updating JsonObjects with JSON-P 1.1 and Java EE 8

Java EE 8 with JSON-P 1.1 ("JavaTM API for JSON Processing", JSR-374) introduced an overloaded Json#createObjectBuilder(JsonObject input) method which uses the JsonObject to set the initial state of the builder.

The pre-initialialization significantly simplifies updates:

import javax.json.Json;
import javax.json.JsonArray;
import javax.json.JsonArrayBuilder;
import javax.json.JsonObject;
public void jsonObjectUpdate() {
    String key = "update";
    String JAVA_EE_8 = "is easy with Java EE 8";

    JsonObject initial = Json.createObjectBuilder().
            add(key, "was hard in Java EE 7").

    JsonObject updated = Json.createObjectBuilder(initial).
            add(key, JAVA_EE_8).

    assertThat(updated.getString(key), is(JAVA_EE_8));
    assertThat(updated.size(), is(1));

See you at Java EE 8 on Java 9 workshop, at Munich Airport, Terminal 2


Speaking of JSON-P - do you know of any plans to integrate an object mapper into JSON-P, Adam? Right now only parsing and 'manual' assembly of JSON objects is supported.
It'd be great to see something like Jackson's ObjectMapper which maps JSON-P's JsonObject to a POJO or vice versa.
