Yet another side project

I’ve noticed a problem with most JSON parser libraries in Java, which is that the content are broken down eagerly without caching. Since the string objects comes through requests and get broken down pretty quickly at the end lots of String garbage is made. I want to write a JSON parser library that lazily retrieves corresponding value(s) recursively on demand (with regex for added reliability – I’ve parsed JSON with regex many times in the past, trust me I’m an expert at this)! But as with all things, I do have a lot of ongoing repositories I lead / contribute to, so this will have to wait.

That said, I now have about six projects in the side project bin.
