JAXB is a standard that allows many underlying implementations. The standard way to specify which JAXB implementation should be used is through a file called jaxb.properties. This file contains one property. To specify that the EclipseLink JAXB implementation should be used the jaxb.properties file should have the following content:

javax.xml.bind.context.factory=org.eclipse.persistence.jaxb.JAXBContextFactory


See EclipseLink Support for Java Architecture for XML Binding (JAXB) in the EclipseLink User's Guide for more information.



Example 1 - Context Path

If a context path is used to create the JAXBContext then the corresponding jaxb.properties file must be available on the class path in the corresponding package.

Code Example

JAXBContext.newInstance("com.example.model");


Example 2 - Class Array

If a class array is used to create the JAXBContent then the corresponding jaxb.properties file must be available on the class path in the package corresponding to the package of the model classes. In the example below the corresponding package is "com.example.model".

Code Example

Class[] classes = new Class[4]; 
classes[0] = com.example.model.AddressType.class; 
classes[1] = com.example.model.ContactInfo.class; 
classes[2] = com.example.model.CustomerType.class; 
classes[3] = com.example.model.PhoneNumber.class; 
JAXBContext jaxbContext = JAXBContext.newInstance(classes);
