    You can use the Jackson Library and do something like:

    public class Person {
        private final String type;
        private final String name;
        public Person(@JsonProperty("@type") String type, @JsonProperty("name") String name) {
            this.type = type;
            this.name = name;
        public String getType() {
            return type;
        public String getName() {
            return name;

    Gson is another alternative:

    public class Person{
      public String type;
      public String name;

    then you can use it as :

    Person person = new Gson().fromJson(YOURJSON,Person.class);
