Automatic field/property XML mapping configuration (@XmlAccessorType)

Download java eBook

Example

Annotation @XmlAccessorType determines whether fields/properties will be automatically serialized to XML. Note, that field and method annotations @XmlElement, @XmlAttribute or @XmlTransient take precedence over the default settings.

public class XmlAccessTypeExample {

@XmlAccessorType(XmlAccessType.FIELD)
static class AccessorExampleField {
    public String field="value1";
    
    public String getGetter() {
        return "getter";
    }
    
    public void setGetter(String value) {}
}

@XmlAccessorType(XmlAccessType.NONE)
static class AccessorExampleNone {
    public String field="value1";
    
    public String getGetter() {
        return "getter";
    }
    
    public void setGetter(String value) {}
}

@XmlAccessorType(XmlAccessType.PROPERTY)
static class AccessorExampleProperty {
    public String field="value1";
    
    public String getGetter() {
        return "getter";
    }
    
    public void setGetter(String value) {}
}

@XmlAccessorType(XmlAccessType.PUBLIC_MEMBER)
static class AccessorExamplePublic {
    public String field="value1";
    
    public String getGetter() {
        return "getter";
    }
    
    public void setGetter(String value) {}
}

public static void main(String[] args) {
    try {
        System.out.println("\nField:");
        JAXB.marshal(new AccessorExampleField(), System.out);
        System.out.println("\nNone:");
        JAXB.marshal(new AccessorExampleNone(), System.out);
        System.out.println("\nProperty:");
        JAXB.marshal(new AccessorExampleProperty(), System.out);
        System.out.println("\nPublic:");
        JAXB.marshal(new AccessorExamplePublic(), System.out);
    } catch (Exception e) {
        System.err.println("Exception occurred while writing in XML!");
    }
}

} // outer class end

Output

Field:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<accessorExampleField>
    <field>value1</field>
</accessorExampleField>

None:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<accessorExampleNone/>

Property:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<accessorExampleProperty>
    <getter>getter</getter>
</accessorExampleProperty>

Public:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<accessorExamplePublic>
    <field>value1</field>
    <getter>getter</getter>
</accessorExamplePublic>
