EclipseLink/Examples/MOXy/Spring/JAXBAnnotations


In order to use EclipseLink JAXB with Spring, all that is required is a jaxb.properties file and eclipselink.jar. No other configuration is required.

jaxb.properties

Following is the jaxb.properties file that tells Spring to use EclipseLink JAXB - this file needs to be on the classpath:

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

EclipseLink

The latest version of EclipseLink can be found on the EclipseLink download page. eclipselink.jar needs to be on the classpath.
