The JAXBHelperContext is a bridge between POJOs and SDO DataObjects. The bridge is based on their corresponding XML representations. For the POJOs the XML representation is specified using JAXB annotations or object-to-XML mappings.
Create the JAXBHelperContext
The JAXBHelperContext is instantiated using a JAXBContext. This JAXBContext represents the object-to-XML mapping for the POJOs. If static DataObjects are being used, a second constructor is offered that takes a ClassLoader as a parameter.
JAXBContext jaxbContext = JAXBContext.newInstance("com.example.customer"); JAXBHelperContext jaxbHelperContext = new JAXBHelperContext(jaxbContext);
For help on creating a JAXBContext see:
Define the SDO Metadata
An XML schema can be used to create the SDO metadata. This is the same schema that the POJOs are mapped to. This step has been separated so that SDO annotations could be added to the XML schema.
