        try {
            String javaJsonString = "{\"name\":\"Chris\",\"age\":22}";
            ObjectMapper objectMapper = new ObjectMapper();
            JsonNode jsonNode = objectMapper.readTree(javaJsonString);
            String name = jsonNode.get("name").asText();
            int age = jsonNode.get("age").asInt();
            System.out.println(name +" : " + age);
