JAXB API 2.2.12 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-2.2.12.jar is the JAR file for the JAXB API 2.2 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.

/**
 * Maps a JavaBean property to a XML element derived from property name.
 *
 * <p> <b>Usage</b> </p>
 * <p>
 * <tt>@XmlElement</tt> annotation can be used with the following program
 * elements: 
 * <ul> 
 *   <li> a JavaBean property </li>
 *   <li> non static, non transient field </li>
 *   <li> within {@link XmlElements}
 * <p>
 *
 * </ul>
 * 
 * The usage is subject to the following constraints:
 * <ul> 
 *   <li> This annotation can be used with following annotations:
 *            {@link XmlID}, 
 *            {@link XmlIDREF},
 *            {@link XmlList},
 *            {@link XmlSchemaType},
 *            {@link XmlValue},
 *            {@link XmlAttachmentRef},
 *            {@link XmlMimeType},
 *            {@link XmlInlineBinaryData},
 *            {@link XmlElementWrapper},
 *            {@link XmlJavaTypeAdapter}</li>
 *   <li> if the type of JavaBean property is a collection type of
 *        array, an indexed property, or a parameterized list, and
 *        this annotation is used with {@link XmlElements} then,
 *        <tt>@XmlElement.type()</tt> must be DEFAULT.class since the
 *        collection item type is already known. </li>
 * </ul>
 *
 * <p>
 * A JavaBean property, when annotated with @XmlElement annotation
 * is mapped to a local element in the XML Schema complex type to
 * which the containing class is mapped.
 *
 * <p>
 * <b>Example 1: </b> Map a public non static non final field to local
 * element
 * <pre>
 *     //Example: Code fragment
 *     public class USPrice {
 *         &#64;XmlElement(name="itemprice")
 *         public java.math.BigDecimal price;
 *     }
 *
 *     &lt;!-- Example: Local XML Schema element --&gt;
 *     &lt;xs:complexType name="USPrice"/&gt;
 *       &lt;xs:sequence&gt;
 *         &lt;xs:element name="itemprice" type="xs:decimal" minOccurs="0"/&gt;
 *       &lt;/sequence&gt;
 *     &lt;/xs:complexType&gt;
 *   </pre>
 * <p>
 *
 * <b> Example 2: </b> Map a field to a nillable element.
 *   <pre>
 *
 *     //Example: Code fragment
 *     public class USPrice {
 *         &#64;XmlElement(nillable=true)
 *         public java.math.BigDecimal price;
 *     }
 *
 *     &lt;!-- Example: Local XML Schema element --&gt;
 *     &lt;xs:complexType name="USPrice"&gt;
 *       &lt;xs:sequence&gt;
 *         &lt;xs:element name="price" type="xs:decimal" nillable="true" minOccurs="0"/&gt;
 *       &lt;/sequence&gt;
 *     &lt;/xs:complexType&gt;
 *   </pre>
 * <p>
 * <b> Example 3: </b> Map a field to a nillable, required element.
 *   <pre>
 *
 *     //Example: Code fragment
 *     public class USPrice {
 *         &#64;XmlElement(nillable=true, required=true)
 *         public java.math.BigDecimal price;
 *     }
 *
 *     &lt;!-- Example: Local XML Schema element --&gt;
 *     &lt;xs:complexType name="USPrice"&gt;
 *       &lt;xs:sequence&gt;
 *         &lt;xs:element name="price" type="xs:decimal" nillable="true" minOccurs="1"/&gt;
 *       &lt;/sequence&gt;
 *     &lt;/xs:complexType&gt;
 *   </pre>
 *
 * <p> <b>Example 4: </b>Map a JavaBean property to an XML element
 * with anonymous type.</p>
 * <p>
 * See Example 6 in @{@link XmlType}.
