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.

package javax.xml.bind;

 * This class is for JAXB permissions. A {@code JAXBPermission}
 * contains a name (also referred to as a "target name") but
 * no actions list; you either have the named permission
 * or you don't.
 * <P>
 * The target name is the name of the JAXB permission (see below).
 * <P>
 * The following table lists all the possible {@code JAXBPermission} target names,
 * and for each provides a description of what the permission allows
 * and a discussion of the risks of granting code the permission.

 *   </td>
 *   <td>
 *     Malicious code can set {@link DatatypeConverterInterface}, which has
 *     VM-wide singleton semantics,  before a genuine JAXB implementation sets one.
 *     This allows malicious code to gain access to objects that it may otherwise
 *     not have access to, such as {@link java.awt.Frame#getFrames()} that belongs to
 *     another application running in the same JVM.
