JAXB 2.0

Currently EclipseLink supports Java Architecture for XML Binding (JAXB) targeting the 2.0 specification. While the JAXB implementation within EclipseLink will not be fully compliant with the JAXB 2.1 specification in the 1.0 release it offers many of the core features, advanced features beyond the specification, and can address compliance through its inclusion of the reference implementation when needed.
