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.

 * <p>
 * Annotate a JavaBean multi-valued property to support mixed content.
 * <p>
 * The usage is subject to the following constraints:
 * <ul>
 *   <li> can be used with &#64;XmlElementRef, &#64;XmlElementRefs or &#64;XmlAnyElement</li>
 * </ul>
 * <p>
 * The following can be inserted into &#64;XmlMixed annotated multi-valued property
 * <ul>
 * <li>XML text information items are added as values of java.lang.String.</li>
 * <li>Children element information items are added as instances of
 * {@link JAXBElement} or instances with a class that is annotated with
 * &#64;XmlRootElement.</li>
 * <li>Unknown content that is not be bound to a JAXB mapped class is inserted
 * as {@link Element}. (Assumes property annotated with &#64;XmlAnyElement)</li>
 * </ul>
 * Below is an example of binding and creation of mixed content.
 * <pre>
 *  &lt;!-- schema fragment having  mixed content --&gt;
 *  &lt;xs:complexType name="letterBody" mixed="true"&gt;
 *    &lt;xs:sequence&gt;
 *	&lt;xs:element name="name" type="xs:string"/&gt;
 *	&lt;xs:element name="quantity" type="xs:positiveInteger"/&gt;
 *	&lt;xs:element name="productName" type="xs:string"/&gt;
 *	&lt;!-- etc. --&gt;
 *    &lt;/xs:sequence&gt;
 *  &lt;/xs:complexType&gt;
 *  &lt;xs:element name="letterBody" type="letterBody"/&gt;
 * // Schema-derived Java code: 
 * // (Only annotations relevant to mixed content are shown below, 
 * //  others are ommitted.)
 * import java.math.BigInteger;
 * public class ObjectFactory {
 * 	// element instance factories
 * 	JAXBElement&lt;LetterBody&gt; createLetterBody(LetterBody value);
 * 	JAXBElement&lt;String&gt;     createLetterBodyName(String value);
 * 	JAXBElement&lt;BigInteger&gt; createLetterBodyQuantity(BigInteger value);
 * 	JAXBElement&lt;String&gt;     createLetterBodyProductName(String value);
 *      // type instance factory
 * 	LetterBody createLetterBody();
 * }
 * </pre>
 * <pre>
 * public class LetterBody {
 * 	// Mixed content can contain instances of Element classes
 * 	// Name, Quantity and ProductName. Text data is represented as
 *	// java.util.String for text.
 *	&#64;XmlMixed 
 * 	&#64;XmlElementRefs({
 *		&#64;XmlElementRef(name="productName", type=JAXBElement.class),
 *		&#64;XmlElementRef(name="quantity", type=JAXBElement.class),
 *		&#64;XmlElementRef(name="name", type=JAXBElement.class)})
 *	List getContent(){...}
 * }
 * </pre>
 * The following is an XML instance document with mixed content
 * <pre>
 * &lt;letterBody&gt;
 * Dear Mr.&lt;name&gt;Robert Smith&lt;/name&gt;
 * Your order of &lt;quantity&gt;1&lt;/quantity&gt; &lt;productName&gt;Baby
 * Monitor&lt;/productName&gt; shipped from our warehouse. ....
 * &lt;/letterBody&gt;
 * </pre>
 * that can be constructed using following JAXB API calls.
 * <pre>
 * LetterBody lb = ObjectFactory.createLetterBody();
 * JAXBElement&lt;LetterBody&gt; lbe = ObjectFactory.createLetterBody(lb);
 * List gcl = lb.getContent();  //add mixed content to general content property.
 * gcl.add("Dear Mr.");  // add text information item as a String.
 * // add child element information item
 * gcl.add(ObjectFactory.createLetterBodyName("Robert Smith"));
 * gcl.add("Your order of "); // add text information item as a String
 * // add children element information items
 * gcl.add(ObjectFactory.
 * 	 		createLetterBodyQuantity(new BigInteger("1")));
 * gcl.add(ObjectFactory.createLetterBodyProductName("Baby Monitor"));
 * gcl.add("shipped from our warehouse");  // add text information item
 * </pre>
 * <p>See "Package Specification" in javax.xml.bind.package javadoc for
 * additional common information.</p>
