Project Retired

2011/01/09 - Apache JaxMe has been retired and moved to Apache Web Services Attic.

For more information, please explore the Attic at http://attic.apache.org or contact Apache Web Services community.

JaxMe 2 is an open source implementation of JAXB, the specification for Java/XML binding.

A Java/XML binding compiler takes as input a schema description (in most cases an XML schema but it may be a DTD, a RelaxNG schema, a Java class inspected via reflection or a database schema). The output is a set of Java classes:

  • A Java bean class compatible with the schema description. (If the schema was obtained via Java reflection, then the original Java bean class.)
  • An unmarshaller that converts a conforming XML document into the equivalent Java bean.
  • Vice versa, a marshaller that converts the Java bean back into the original XML document.

In the case of JaxMe, the generated classes may also

  • Store the Java bean into a database. Preferrably an XML database like eXist, Xindice, or Tamino, but it may also be a relational database like MySQL. (If the schema is sufficiently simple. :-)
  • Query the database for bean instances.
  • Implement an EJB entity or session bean with the same abilities.

In other words, by simply creating a schema and running the JaxMe binding compiler,

Running the JaxMe 2 compiler

you have automatically generated classes that implement the complete workflow of a typical web application:
