Types Supported by JAX-WS

JAX-WS delegates the mapping of Java programming language types to and from XML definitions to JAXB. Application developers don’t need to know the details of these mappings but should be aware that not every class in the Java language can be used as a method parameter or return type in JAX-WS.

The following sections explain the default schema-to-Java and Java-to-schema data type bindings.

Schema-to-Java Mapping
The Java language provides a richer set of data type than XML schema. Table lists the mapping of XML data types to Java data types in JAXB.



XML Schema Type
Java Data Type
xsd:string
java.lang.String
xsd:integer
java.math.BigInteger
xsd:int
int
xsd.long
long
xsd:short
short
xsd:decimal
java.math.BigDecimal
xsd:float
float
xsd:double
double
xsd:boolean
boolean
xsd:byte
byte
xsd:QName
javax.xml.namespace.QName
xsd:dateTime
javax.xml.datatype.XMLGregorianCalendar
xsd:base64Binary
byte[]
xsd:hexBinary

xsd:unsignedInt

xsd:time
javax.xml.datatype.XMLGregorianCalendar
xsd:date
javax.xml.datatype.XMLGregorianCalendar
xsd:g
javax.xml.datatype.XMLGregorianCalendar
xsd:anySimpleType
java.lang.Object
xsd:anySimpleType
java.lang.String
xsd:duration
javax.xml.datatype.Duration
xsd:NOTATION
javax.xml.namespace.QName

Java-to-Schema Mapping
Table shows the default mapping of Java classes to XML data types.
