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 factory method to a XML element.
 *
 * <p> <b>Usage</b> </p>
 *
 * The annotation creates a mapping between an XML schema element
 * declaration and a <i> element factory method </i> that returns a
 * JAXBElement instance representing the element
 * declaration. Typically, the element factory method is generated
 * (and annotated) from a schema into the ObjectFactory class in a
 * Java package that represents the binding of the element
 * declaration's target namespace. Thus, while the annotation syntax 
 * allows &#64;XmlElementDecl to be used on any method, semantically
 * its use is restricted to annotation of element factory method. 
 *
 * The usage is subject to the following constraints:
 * 
 * <ul>
 *   <li> The class containing the element factory method annotated
 *        with &#64;XmlElementDecl must be marked with {@link
 *        XmlRegistry}. </li> 
 *   <li> The element factory method must take one parameter
 *        assignable to {@link Object}.</li> 
 * </ul>
 *
 * <p><b>Example 1: </b>Annotation on a factory method
 * <pre>
 *     // Example: code fragment
 *     &#64;XmlRegistry
 *     class ObjectFactory {
 *         &#64;XmlElementDecl(name="foo")
 *         JAXBElement&lt;String&gt; createFoo(String s) { ... }
 *     }
 * </pre>
 * <pre> 
 *     &lt;!-- XML input --&gt;
 *       &lt;foo&gt;string&lt;/foo&gt;
 *
 *     // Example: code fragment corresponding to XML input
 *     JAXBElement&lt;String&gt; o =
 *     (JAXBElement&lt;String&gt;)unmarshaller.unmarshal(aboveDocument);
 *     // print JAXBElement instance to show values
 *     System.out.println(o.getName());   // prints  "{}foo"
 *     System.out.println(o.getValue());  // prints  "string"
 *     System.out.println(o.getValue().getClass()); // prints "java.lang.String"
 *
 *     &lt;!-- Example: XML schema definition --&gt;
 *     &lt;xs:element name="foo" type="xs:string"/&gt;
 * </pre>
 *
 * <p><b>Example 2: </b> Element declaration with non local scope
 * <p>
 * The following example illustrates the use of scope annotation
 * parameter in binding of element declaration in schema derived
 * code. 
 * <p>
 * The following example may be replaced in a future revision of
 * this javadoc.
 * 
 * <pre>
 *     &lt;!-- Example: XML schema definition --&gt;
 *     &lt;xs:schema&gt;
 *       &lt;xs:complexType name="pea"&gt;
 *         &lt;xs:choice maxOccurs="unbounded"&gt;
 *           &lt;xs:element name="foo" type="xs:string"/&gt;
 *           &lt;xs:element name="bar" type="xs:string"/&gt;
 *         &lt;/xs:choice&gt;
 *       &lt;/xs:complexType&gt;
 *       &lt;xs:element name="foo" type="xs:int"/&gt;
 *     &lt;/xs:schema&gt;
 * </pre> 
 * <pre>
 *     // Example: expected default binding
 *     class Pea {
 *         &#64;XmlElementRefs({
 *             &#64;XmlElementRef(name="foo",type=JAXBElement.class)
 *             &#64;XmlElementRef(name="bar",type=JAXBElement.class)
 *         })
 *         List&lt;JAXBElement&lt;String&gt;&gt; fooOrBar;
 *     }
 * 
 *     &#64;XmlRegistry
 *     class ObjectFactory {
 *         &#64;XmlElementDecl(scope=Pea.class,name="foo")
 *         JAXBElement&lt;String&gt; createPeaFoo(String s);
 * 
 *         &#64;XmlElementDecl(scope=Pea.class,name="bar")
 *         JAXBElement&lt;String&gt; createPeaBar(String s);
 * 
 *         &#64;XmlElementDecl(name="foo")
 *         JAXBElement&lt;Integer&gt; createFoo(Integer i);
 *     }
 * 
 * </pre>
 * Without scope createFoo and createPeaFoo would become ambiguous
 * since both of them map to a XML schema element with the same local
 * name "foo".
