EclipseLink Moxy Provider for JAX-RS and JAX-WS

Guest Author

EclipseLink MOXy is a JAXB provider bundled in GlassFish 3.1.2. In addition to JAXB RI, it provides XPath Based Mapping, better support for JPA entities, native JSON binding and many other features.

Learn more about MOXy and JAXB examples on their wiki.


Blaise blogged about how MOXy can be leveraged to create a JAX-WS service.You just need to provide data-binding attribute in sun-jaxws.xml and then all the XPath-based mapping can be specified on JAXB beans.

MOXy can also be used as JAX-RS JSON provider on server-side and client-side.

How are you using MOXy in your applications ?

    Just spent 10 minutes scouring Google and Eclipse site for a download.

    In typical Eclipse spirit, no link, no mention of a download for Moxy anywhere. FAIL.

    MOXy is bundled with EclipseLink and GlassFish 3.1.2. No separate download is required or needed.
