 * <b>Unmarshalling XML Data</b><br>
 * <blockquote>
 * Unmarshalling can deserialize XML data that represents either an entire XML document 
 * or a subtree of an XML document. Typically, it is sufficient to use the
 * unmarshalling methods described by  
 * <a href="{@docRoot}/javax/xml/bind/Unmarshaller.html#unmarshalGlobal">Unmarshal root element that is declared globally</a>.
 * These unmarshal methods utilize {@link JAXBContext}'s mapping of global XML element
 * declarations and type definitions to JAXB mapped classes to initiate the 
 * unmarshalling of the root element of  XML data.  When the {@link JAXBContext}'s 
 * mappings are not sufficient to unmarshal the root element of XML data, 
 * the application can assist the unmarshalling process by using the 
 * <a href="{@docRoot}/javax/xml/bind/Unmarshaller.html#unmarshalByDeclaredType">unmarshal by declaredType methods</a>.
 * These methods are useful for unmarshalling XML data where
 * the root element corresponds to a local element declaration in the schema.
 * </blockquote>
 * 
 * <blockquote>
 * An unmarshal method never returns null. If the unmarshal process is unable to unmarshal
 * the root of XML content to a JAXB mapped object, a fatal error is reported that
 * terminates processing by throwing JAXBException.
 * </blockquote>
 *
 * <p>
 * <a name="unmarshalGlobal"></a>
 * <b>Unmarshal a root element that is globally declared</b><br>
 * <blockquote>
 * The unmarshal methods that do not have an {@code declaredType} parameter use
 * {@link JAXBContext} to unmarshal the root element of an XML data. The {@link JAXBContext} 
 * instance is the one that was used to create this {@code Unmarshaller}. The {@link JAXBContext}
 * instance maintains a mapping of globally declared XML element and type definition names to 
 * JAXB mapped classes. The unmarshal method checks if {@link JAXBContext} has a mapping
 * from the root element's XML name and/or {@code @xsi:type} to a JAXB mapped class.  If it does, it umarshalls the
 * XML data using the appropriate JAXB mapped class. Note that when the root element name is unknown and the root
 * element has an {@code @xsi:type}, the XML data is unmarshalled
 * using that JAXB mapped class as the value of a {@link JAXBElement}.
 * When the {@link JAXBContext} object does not have a mapping for the root element's name
 * nor its {@code @xsi:type}, if it exists,
 * then the unmarshal operation will abort immediately by throwing a {@link UnmarshalException 
 * UnmarshalException}. This exception scenario can be worked around by using the unmarshal by 
 * declaredType methods described in the next subsection.
 * </blockquote>
 * 
 * <p>
 * <a name="unmarshalByDeclaredType"></a>
 * <b>Unmarshal by Declared Type</b><br>
 * <blockquote>
 * The unmarshal methods with a {@code declaredType} parameter enable an
 * application to deserialize a root element of XML data, even when
 * there is no mapping in {@link JAXBContext} of the root element's XML name.
 * The unmarshaller unmarshals the root element using the application provided
 * mapping specified as the {@code declaredType} parameter.
 * Note that even when the root element's element name is mapped by {@link JAXBContext}, 
 * the {@code declaredType} parameter overrides that mapping for
 * deserializing the root element when using these unmarshal methods. 
 * Additionally, when the root element of XML data has an {@code xsi:type} attribute and
 * that attribute's value references a type definition that is mapped 
 * to a JAXB mapped class by {@link JAXBContext}, that the root 
 * element's {@code xsi:type} attribute takes
 * precedence over the unmarshal methods {@code declaredType} parameter.
 * These methods always return a {@code JAXBElement<declaredType>}
 * instance. The table below shows how the properties of the returned JAXBElement 
 * instance are set.
 *
 * <a name="unmarshalDeclaredTypeReturn"></a>
 *   <table class="striped">

 * <b>Support for SAX2.0 Compliant Parsers</b><br>
 * <blockquote>
 * A client application has the ability to select the SAX2.0 compliant parser
 * of their choice.  If a SAX parser is not selected, then the JAXB Provider's
 * default parser will be used.  Even though the JAXB Provider's default parser
 * is not required to be SAX2.0 compliant, all providers are required to allow
 * a client application to specify their own SAX2.0 parser.  Some providers may
 * require the client application to specify the SAX2.0 parser at schema compile
 * time. See {@link #unmarshal(javax.xml.transform.Source) unmarshal(Source)} 
 * for more detail.
 * </blockquote>
 *
 * <p>
 * <b>Validation and Well-Formedness</b><br>
 * <blockquote>
 * <p>
 * A client application can enable or disable JAXP 1.3 validation
 * mechanism via the {@code setSchema(javax.xml.validation.Schema)} API.
 * Sophisticated clients can specify their own validating SAX 2.0 compliant 
 * parser and bypass the JAXP 1.3 validation mechanism using the 
 * {@link #unmarshal(javax.xml.transform.Source) unmarshal(Source)}  API.
 * 
 * <p>
 * Since unmarshalling invalid XML content is defined in JAXB 2.0, 
 * the Unmarshaller default validation event handler was made more lenient
 * than in JAXB 1.0.  When schema-derived code generated
 * by JAXB 1.0 binding compiler is registered with {@link JAXBContext}, 
 * the default unmarshal validation handler is 
 * {@link javax.xml.bind.helpers.DefaultValidationEventHandler} and it
 * terminates the marshal  operation after encountering either a fatal error or an error. 
 * For a JAXB 2.0 client application, there is no explicitly defined default
 * validation handler and the default event handling only 
 * terminates the unmarshal operation after encountering a fatal error.
 * 
 * </blockquote>
 *
 * <p>
 * <a name="supportedProps"></a>
 * <b>Supported Properties</b><br>
 * <blockquote>
 * <p>
 * There currently are not any properties required to be supported by all 
 * JAXB Providers on Unmarshaller.  However, some providers may support 
 * their own set of provider specific properties.
 * </blockquote>
 * 
 * <p>
 * <a name="unmarshalEventCallback"></a>
 * <b>Unmarshal Event Callbacks</b><br>
 * <blockquote>
 * The {@link Unmarshaller} provides two styles of callback mechanisms
 * that allow application specific processing during key points in the
 * unmarshalling process.  In 'class defined' event callbacks, application
 * specific code placed in JAXB mapped classes is triggered during
 * unmarshalling.  'External listeners' allow for centralized processing
 * of unmarshal events in one callback method rather than by type event callbacks.
 * <p>
 * 'Class defined' event callback methods allow any JAXB mapped class to specify 
 * its own specific callback methods by defining methods with the following method signature:
 * <blockquote>
 * <pre>
 *   // This method is called immediately after the object is created and before the unmarshalling of this 
 *   // object begins. The callback provides an opportunity to initialize JavaBean properties prior to unmarshalling.
 *   void beforeUnmarshal(Unmarshaller, Object parent);
 * 
 *   //This method is called after all the properties (except IDREF) are unmarshalled for this object, 
 *   //but before this object is set to the parent object.
 *   void afterUnmarshal(Unmarshaller, Object parent);
 * </pre>
 * </blockquote>
 * The class defined callback methods should be used when the callback method requires
 * access to non-public methods and/or fields of the class. 
 * <p>
 * The external listener callback mechanism enables the registration of a {@link Listener} 
 * instance with an {@link Unmarshaller#setListener(Listener)}. The external listener receives all callback events, 
 * allowing for more centralized processing than per class defined callback methods.  The external listener 
 * receives events when unmarshalling process is marshalling to a JAXB element or to JAXB mapped class.
 * <p>
 * The 'class defined' and external listener event callback methods are independent of each other,
 * both can be called for one event.  The invocation ordering when both listener callback methods exist is
 * defined in {@link Listener#beforeUnmarshal(Object, Object)} and {@link Listener#afterUnmarshal(Object, Object)}. 
* <p>
 * An event callback method throwing an exception terminates the current unmarshal process.

     * <p>
     * A client application can choose not to use the default parser mechanism
     * supplied with their JAXB provider.  Any SAX 2.0 compliant parser can be
     * substituted for the JAXB provider's default mechanism.  To do so, the
     * client application must properly configure a {@code SAXSource} containing
     * an {@code XMLReader} implemented by the SAX 2.0 parser provider.  If the
     * {@code XMLReader} has an {@code org.xml.sax.ErrorHandler} registered
     * on it, it will be replaced by the JAXB Provider so that validation errors
     * can be reported via the {@code ValidationEventHandler} mechanism of
     * JAXB.  If the {@code SAXSource} does not contain an {@code XMLReader},
     * then the JAXB provider's default parser mechanism will be used.
     * <p>
     * This parser replacement mechanism can also be used to replace the JAXB
     * provider's unmarshal-time validation engine.  The client application 
     * must properly configure their SAX 2.0 compliant parser to perform
     * validation (as shown in the example above).  Any {@code SAXParserExceptions}
     * encountered by the parser during the unmarshal operation will be
     * processed by the JAXB provider and converted into JAXB 
     * {@code ValidationEvent} objects which will be reported back to the
     * client via the {@code ValidationEventHandler} registered with the
     * {@code Unmarshaller}.  <i>Note:</i> specifying a substitute validating
     * SAX 2.0 parser for unmarshalling does not necessarily replace the 
     * validation engine used by the JAXB provider for performing on-demand 
     * validation.
     * <p>
     * The only way for a client application to specify an alternate parser
     * mechanism to be used during unmarshal is via the 
     * {@code unmarshal(SAXSource)} API.  All other forms of the unmarshal
     * method (File, URL, Node, etc) will use the JAXB provider's default 
     * parser and validator mechanisms.
