JAXB is the Java API for XML Data Binding, used in Java-based Web services.
Why Data Binding Matters
Brett McLaughlin offers five examples of how data binding can save you considerable time and energy.
Developing with JAXB and Ant, Part 1
Apache's Jakarta Ant is a powerful build tool for automating tasks in Java development, working with the JAXB API. In the process, you'll see how JAXB works with packages.
The Java Platform
In this excerpt from O'Reilly & Associates' Java in a Nutshell, 4th Edition, David Flanagan shows you a number of the Java 2SE platform packages, using examples of the most useful classes in these packages.
Hangin' with the JAX Pack, Part 1
In this three-part series, BEA Systems' Al Saginach takes a look at the JAX Pack, JAVA APIs for providing XML-based Web services handling XML. This week Al looks at JAXP (for XML processing) and JAXB (for XML binding). Next week: XML messaging with JAXM.
XML Data Binding with Castor
XML can make even simple things difficult. Wouldn't it be nice to be able to work with Java instead? The Castor XML data-binding framework provides a path between XML and Java objects and back again.
Java and Web Services Primer
BEA Systems' Al Saganich begins this series on Java and XML Web Services by introducing and demonstrating Web services as an extension of Remote Procedure Calls (RPC). Future articles in this series will show you how the Java 2EE and Web Services work together.
