Mapping Enums

Java enums can be mapped to XML using the @XmlEnum and @XmlEnumValue annotations.


Mapping Enums using Constant Names

The following schema demonstrates an XML enumeration:

<xs:simpleType name="CustomerType">
   <xs:restriction base="xs:string"/>
      <xs:enumeration value="PROMO_CUSTOMER"/>
      <xs:enumeration value="NEW_CUSTOMER"/>
      <xs:enumeration value="VIP"/>
      <xs:enumeration value="NORMAL"/>
   </xs:restriction>
</xs:simpleType>

If your enum constant names themselves are sufficient for the XML representation, you can simply use the @XmlEnum annotation:

@XmlRootElement
@XmlAccessorType(XmlAccessType.FIELD)
public class Customer {
   private CustomerType type = CustomerType.NEW_CUSTOMER;
 
   @XmlEnum(String.class)
   private enum CustomerType { PROMO_CUSTOMER, NEW_CUSTOMER, VIP, NORMAL }
 
   ...
}

When marshalled to XML, a Customer would look like this:

<customer>
   <type>NEW_CUSTOMER</type>
</customer>


Mapping Enums to Custom XML Values

Given the following XML schema enumeration:

<xs:simpleType name="RewardLevel">
   <xs:restriction base="xs:int">
      <xs:enumeration value="1"/>
      <xs:enumeration value="5"/>
      <xs:enumeration value="10"/>
      <xs:enumeration value="25"/>
   </xs:restriction>
</xs:simpleType>

The @XmlEnumValue annotation is used to provide an XML value for each enum constant:

@XmlRootElement
@XmlAccessorType(XmlAccessType.FIELD)
public class Customer {
 
   private RewardLevel discount = RewardLevel.NONE;
 
   @XmlEnum(Integer.class)
   private enum RewardLevel { 
      @XmlEnumValue("0") NONE(0), 
      @XmlEnumValue("5") BRONZE(5), 
      @XmlEnumValue("10") SILVER(10),
      @XmlEnumValue("25") GOLD(25),
      @XmlEnumValue("40") PLATINUM(40);
 
      ...
}

When marshalled to XML, a Customer would look like this:

<customer>
   <discount>0</discount>
</customer>
