Annotation Type XmlSchemaType


@Retention(value=RUNTIME)
@Target(value={FIELD,METHOD,PACKAGE})
public @interface XmlSchemaType

Maps a Java type to a simple schema built-in type.

Usage

@XmlSchemaType annotation can be used with the following program elements:

@XmlSchemaType annotation defined for Java type applies to all references to the Java type from a property/field. A @XmlSchemaType annotation specified on the property/field overrides the @XmlSchemaType annotation specified at the package level.

This annotation can be used with the following annotations: XmlElement, XmlAttribute.

Example 1: Customize mapping of XMLGregorianCalendar on the field.

     //Example: Code fragment
     public class USPrice {
         @XmlElement
         @XmlSchemaType(name="date")
         public XMLGregorianCalendar date;
     }
 
     <!-- Example: Local XML Schema element -->
     <xs:complexType name="USPrice"/>
       <xs:sequence>
         <xs:element name="date" type="xs:date"/>
       </sequence>
     </xs:complexType>
 

Example 2: Customize mapping of XMLGregorianCalendar at package level

     package foo;
     @javax.xml.bind.annotation.XmlSchemaType(
          name="date", type=javax.xml.datatype.XMLGregorianCalendar.class)
     }
