I have upgraded the Java API from 8.2 to the latest. The method
Hit::sort now returns a
List<FieldValue> instead of
List<String>. I understand this is the correct way but it breaks my app as I was base64 encoding/decoding those sort string values.
I am in the process of migrating it to use
FieldValue and I wonder if there is an easy way of serializing/deserializing a
FieldValue object to/from a
String. I see the
FieldValue class is
JsonpDeserializable but I don't find information about how to take advantage of it.
