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. Use the standard JAXBContext.newInstance(Class... classesToBeBound) API to create a JAXBContext.
    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
  • an array of Classes and a Map of properties
  • a context path String (package name containing jaxb.properties)
  • a context path String (package name containing jaxb.properties) and a ClassLoader
  • a context path String (package name containing jaxb.properties), a ClassLoader and a Map of properties
