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.

 * Use an adapter that implements {@link XmlAdapter} for custom marshaling.
 * <p> <b> Usage: </b> </p>
 * <p> The {@code @XmlJavaTypeAdapter} annotation can be used with the
 * following program elements:  
 * <ul> 
 *   <li> a JavaBean property </li>
 *   <li> field </li>
 *   <li> parameter </li>
 *   <li> package </li>
 *   <li> from within {@link XmlJavaTypeAdapters} </li>
 * </ul>
 * <p> When {@code @XmlJavaTypeAdapter} annotation is defined on a
 * class, it applies to all references to the class.
 * <p> When {@code @XmlJavaTypeAdapter} annotation is defined at the
 * package level it applies to all references from within the package
 * to {@code @XmlJavaTypeAdapter.type()}.
 * <p> When {@code @XmlJavaTypeAdapter} annotation is defined on the
 * field, property or parameter, then the annotation applies to the
 * field, property or the parameter only.
 * <p> A {@code @XmlJavaTypeAdapter} annotation on a field, property
 * or parameter overrides the {@code @XmlJavaTypeAdapter} annotation
 * associated with the class being referenced by the field, property
 * or parameter.  
 * <p> A {@code @XmlJavaTypeAdapter} annotation on a class overrides
 * the {@code @XmlJavaTypeAdapter} annotation specified at the
 * package level for that class.
 * <p>This annotation can be used with the following other annotations:
 * {@link XmlElement}, {@link XmlAttribute}, {@link XmlElementRef},
 * {@link XmlElementRefs}, {@link XmlAnyElement}. This can also be
 * used at the package level with the following annotations:
 * {@link XmlAccessorType}, {@link XmlSchema}, {@link XmlSchemaType},
 * {@link XmlSchemaTypes}. 
 * <p><b> Example: </b> See example in {@link XmlAdapter}
 * @author <ul><li>Sekhar Vajjhala, Sun Microsystems Inc.</li> <li> Kohsuke Kawaguchi, Sun Microsystems Inc.</li></ul>
 * @since 1.6, JAXB 2.0
 * @see XmlAdapter

public @interface XmlJavaTypeAdapter {
     * Points to the class that converts a value type to a bound type or vice versa.
     * See {@link XmlAdapter} for more details.
    Class<? extends XmlAdapter> value();

     * If this annotation is used at the package level, then value of
     * the type() must be specified.

    Class type() default DEFAULT.class;

     * Used in {@link XmlJavaTypeAdapter#type()} to
     * signal that the type be inferred from the signature
     * of the field, property, parameter or the class.
