A

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

The Reference Implementation of JAXB API is the implementation developed by Oracle Corporation and Sun Microsystems to demonstrate how the JAXB API specification should be implemented.

Between Java SE 6 and 10, Oracle selected and included some releases of the Reference Implementation into the Java SE package to become the Java SE default implementation of JAXB API.

Here is a list of releases of the Reference Implementation of JAXB API.
