Binary Types

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.

package example;
 
import javax.xml.bind.annotation.*;
 
@XmlRootElement
@XmlAccessorType(AccessType.FIELD)
public class Employee {
 
   private String name;
   private byte[] photo;
   private Byte[] pgpKey;
   ...
