Java Language JAXB


JAXB or Java Architecture for XML Binding (JAXB) is a software framework that allows Java developers to map Java classes to XML representations. This Page will introduce readers to JAXB using detailed examples about its functions provided mainly for marshaling and un-marshaling Java Objects into xml format and vice-versa.


  • JAXB.marshall(object, fileObjOfXML);

  • Object obj = JAXB.unmarshall(fileObjOfXML, className);


fileObjOfXMLFile object of an XML file
classNameName of a class with .class extension


Using the XJC tool available in the JDK, java code for a xml structure described in a xml schema (.xsd file) can be automatically generated, see XJC topic.
