Specifying the EclipseLink Runtime

In order to use EclipseLink MOXy as your JAXB implementation, you must identify the EclipseLink JAXBContextFactory in your jaxb.properties file.

  1. Create a text file named jaxb.properties, specifying JAXBContextFactory as the factory used to build new JAXBContexts.
    javax.xml.bind.context.factory=org.eclipse.persistence.jaxb.JAXBContextFactory
  2. Copy the file to the same package (directory) in which your model classes reside.
  3. Create a JAXBContent using the standard APIs.
    When this method is called, MOXy attempts to locate a jaxb.properties file on the classpath in the package specified by contextPath, and use the specified factory.
    JAXBContext jaxbContext = JAXBContext.newInstance(Customer.class);

Because you do not need to change any application code, you can easily switch between different JAXB implementations.

The JAXBContextFactory can

  • Create a JAXBContext from an array of Classes and a Properties object
  • Create a JAXBContext from a context path and a ClassLoader
