Phase 6 - Substitution Groups (page under construction)

Provide support for substitution groups.

Annotations

The following annotations will be targeted in this phase:

Annotation XML Metadata Tag Package Type Field Method
XmlElements xml-elements     X X
XmlElementRef xml-element-ref     X X
XmlElementRefs xml-element-refs X
X

Example: XmlElements annotation

Java Metadata

The following example will demonstrate how the XmlElements annotation can be applied:

org.example.Foo.java

package org.example;
 
@javax.xml.bind.annotation.XmlRootElement
public class Foo {
    @javax.xml.bind.annotation.XmlElementWrapper(name="items")
    @javax.xml.bind.annotation.XmlElements({
        @javax.xml.bind.annotation.XmlElement(name="A", type=Integer.class),
        @javax.xml.bind.annotation.XmlElement(name="B", type=Float.class)
    })
    public java.util.List items;
}

XML Metadata

xml-elements

If this is present, the entire annotation will be replaced.

org/example/eclipselink-oxm.xml

This XML file represents metadata overrides for the "org.example.Foo" class.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="US-ASCII"?>
<xml-bindings xmlns="http://www.eclipse.org/eclipselink/xsds/persistence/oxm">
	<java-types>
		<java-type name="org.eclipse.persistence.testing.jaxb.externalizedmetadata.xmlelements.Foo">
            <xml-root-element name="foo"/>
            <java-attributes>
                <xml-elements java-attribute="items">
                    <xml-element java-attribute="A" type="java.lang.Integer" />
                    <xml-element java-attribute="B" type="java.lang.Float" />
                </xml-elements>
            </java-attributes>
		</java-type>
	</java-types>
</xml-bindings>
