Using the RuntimeSchema framework where the schema is determined by the object, is there any supported way to change a Java object's serialization from a complex type to a simple string type?  As an example, JAXB supports XmlJavaAdapter to change the serialized type of a field.

In this case I want to take a complex type (org.joda.time.DateTime) and have it marshal as it's ISO String representation ("2016-03-30T12:38:00.000-07:00").

Sure.
Simply register a delegate for that type.
