JAXB API Source Code

Java Architecture for XML Binding (JAXB) is a Java API that allows Java developers to map Java classes to XML representations.

jaxb-api-2.3.1.jar is the JAR file for the JAXB API 2.3 specification. You can download and use it directly without any building process as shown in the last tutorial.

If you want to rebuild the JAR file, you can download the source code at JAXB API Maven Website.
