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.

 * <p>
 * Enables mapping a class to a  XML Schema complex type with a
 * simpleContent or a XML Schema simple type. 
 * </p>
 * <p>
 * <b> Usage: </b>
 * <p>
 * The {@code @XmlValue} annotation can be used with the following program
 * elements: 
 * <ul> 
 *   <li> a JavaBean property.</li>
 *   <li> non static, non transient field.</li>
 * </ul>
 * <p>See "Package Specification" in javax.xml.bind.package javadoc for
 * additional common information.</p>
 * The usage is subject to the following usage constraints:
 * <ul>
 *   <li>At most one field or property can be annotated with the
 *       {@code @XmlValue} annotation. </li>
 *   <li>{@code @XmlValue} can be used with the following
 *   annotations: {@link XmlList}. However this is redundant since
 *   {@link XmlList} maps a type to a simple schema type that derives by
 *   list just as {@link XmlValue} would. </li>
 *   <li>If the type of the field or property is a collection type,
 *       then the collection item type must map to a simple schema
 *       type.  </li>
 *   <li>If the type of the field or property is not a collection
 *       type, then the type must map to a XML Schema simple type. </li>
 * </ul>
 * <p>
 * If the annotated JavaBean property is the sole class member being
 * mapped to XML Schema construct, then the class is mapped to a
 * simple type. 
 * If there are additional JavaBean properties (other than the
 * JavaBean property annotated with {@code @XmlValue} annotation)
 * that are mapped to XML attributes, then the class is mapped to a
 * complex type with simpleContent.
 * </p>
 * <p> <b> Example 1: </b> Map a class to XML Schema simpleType</p>
 *   <pre>
 *     // Example 1: Code fragment
 *     public class USPrice {
 *         &#64;XmlValue
 *         public java.math.BigDecimal price;
 *     }
 * {@code
 *     <!-- Example 1: XML Schema fragment -->
 *     <xs:simpleType name="USPrice">
 *       <xs:restriction base="xs:decimal"/>
 *     </xs:simpleType>
 * }</pre>
 * <p><b> Example 2: </b> Map a class to XML Schema complexType with
 *        with simpleContent.</p>
 *   <pre>
 *   // Example 2: Code fragment
 *   public class InternationalPrice {
 *       &#64;XmlValue
 *       public java.math.BigDecimal price;
 *       &#64;XmlAttribute
 *       public String currency;
 *   }
 * {@code
 *   <!-- Example 2: XML Schema fragment -->
 *   <xs:complexType name="InternationalPrice">
 *     <xs:simpleContent>
 *       <xs:extension base="xs:decimal">
 *         <xs:attribute name="currency" type="xs:string"/>
 *       </xs:extension>
 *     </xs:simpleContent>
 *   </xs:complexType>
 * }</pre>
