javax.xml.bind.annotation
Annotation Type XmlAttachmentRef


@Retention(value=RUNTIME)
@Target(value={FIELD,METHOD,PARAMETER})
public @interface XmlAttachmentRef

Marks a field/property that its XML form is a uri reference to mime content. The mime content is optimally stored out-of-line as an attachment. A field/property must always map to the DataHandler class.

Usage

 @XmlRootElement
 class Foo {
   @XmlAttachmentRef
   @XmlAttribute
   DataHandler data;

   @XmlAttachmentRef
   @XmlElement
   DataHandler body;
 }
 
The above code maps to the following XML:

 <xs:element name="foo" xmlns:ref="http://ws-i.org/profiles/basic/1.1/xsd">
   <xs:complexType>
     <xs:sequence>
       <xs:element name="body" type="ref:swaRef" minOccurs="0" />
     </xs:sequence>
     <xs:attribute name="data" type="ref:swaRef" use="optional" />
   </xs:complexType>
 </xs:element>
 

The above binding supports WS-I AP 1.0 WS-I Attachments Profile Version 1.0.

Since:
JAXB2.0
