Overview

This example demonstrates how to derive an XML representation from a set of JPA entities using JAXB when a JPA entity has compound primary keys.

JPA Entities

@Entity
public class PhoneNumber {
 
    @ManyToOne
    @JoinColumns({
        @JoinColumn(name="E_ID", referencedColumnName = "E_ID"),
        @JoinColumn(name="E_COUNTRY", referencedColumnName = "COUNTRY")
    })
 
    private Employee contact;
 
}
@Entity
@IdClass(EmployeeId.class)
public class Employee {
 
    @Id
    @Column(name="E_ID")
    private BigDecimal eId;
 
    @Id
    private String country;
 
    @OneToMany(mappedBy="contact")
    private List<PhoneNumber> contactNumber;
 
}
public class EmployeeId {
 
    private BigDecimal eId;
    private String country;
 
}

JAXB Bindings

For this example the XML acessor type will be set to FIELD for all the model classes. This can be set as a package level JAXB annotation.

@XmlAccessorType(XmlAccessType.FIELD)
package com.example.model;
 
import javax.xml.bind.annotation.XmlAccessType;
import javax.xml.bind.annotation.XmlAccessorType;

Target Object

As we require support beyond the JAXB spec, we will make use of the EclipseLink extension @XmlKey. Also since the relationship is bidirectional, we will use the EclipseLink extension @XmlInverseReference.

@Entity
@IdClass(EmployeeId.class)
public class Employee {
 
    @Id
    @Column(name="E_ID")
    @XmlID
    private BigDecimal eId;
 
    @Id
    @XmlKey
    private String country;
 
    @OneToMany(mappedBy="contact")
    @XmlInverseReference(mappedBy="contact")
    private List<PhoneNumber> contactNumber;
 
}

Source Object

If the target object had a single ID then we would use @XmlIDREF. Since the target object has a compound key, we will use the EclipseLink extension @XmlJoinNodes to set up the mapping.

@Entity
public class PhoneNumber {
 
    @ManyToOne
    @JoinColumns({
        @JoinColumn(name="E_ID", referencedColumnName = "E_ID"),
        @JoinColumn(name="E_COUNTRY", referencedColumnName = "COUNTRY")
    })
    @XmlJoinNodes( {
        @XmlJoinNode(xmlPath="contact/id/text()", referencedXmlPath="id/text()"),
        @XmlJoinNode(xmlPath="contact/country/text()", referencedXmlPath="country/text()")
    })
    private Employee contact;
 
}
