There are a few extra things to consider when mapping to fields of type byte[ ] or Byte[ ].
byte[ ] versus Byte[ ]
Unlike other Java primitive/wrapper types, Eclipselink differentiates between byte[ ] (primitive) and Byte[ ] (wrapper) data types. By default, byte[ ] will marshal to an element or attribute of type base64Binary, whereas Byte[ ] will marshal each byte as its own element.
