Attachments: Generate JAXB Annotation option

Description Petr Jiricka 2010-02-24 10:34:17 UTC
Currently, the IDE has a REST from Entity Classes wizard, which generates service and convertor classes that expose a set of entities as a service.

However, a cleaner approach would be to generate JAXB annotations directly into JPA classes. This could be done either through a separate wizard as is done now, or by adding this to the JPA from Entity wizard - there could be an option to generate JAXB classes as part of entity generation.
Comment 1 Petr Jiricka 2010-02-24 10:35:45 UTC
BTW, here is a relevant document which discusses how to map cyclic references to JAXB - a situation that comes up with related JPA entities: https://jaxb.dev.java.net/guide/Mapping_cyclic_references_to_XML.html
Comment 2 David Konecny 2010-02-24 14:38:15 UTC
I would prefer to enhance existing 'REST from Entity Classes' wizard to have an option to generate JAXB annotations directly into JPA classes.
Comment 3 Petr Jiricka 2010-07-14 13:51:32 UTC
Milan and I just discussed this - I agree that enhancing the 'REST from Entity Classes'  wizard to have this checkbox is needed, but I think there is no harm in allowing the user to generate JAXB annotations also when using the 'Entity from DB' wizard.
Comment 4 Petr Jiricka 2010-07-19 08:12:54 UTC
Here is an interesting and relevant blog: http://fairitale.blogspot.com/2010/07/glassfish-jpa-jaxb.html
It is in the context of SOAP services, though it seems generating JAXB annotations would be relevant to both REST and SOAP scenarios. If the IDE does this right, we could save users a lot of trouble and hand-modifying the sources.
Comment 5 Milan Kuchtiak 2010-07-21 14:18:19 UTC
Added "Generate JAXB Annotation" checkbox to Entity Classes from DB wizard:

Comment 7 Milan Kuchtiak 2010-07-21 14:21:03 UTC
The tooltip text says:
Useful when entity classes are supposed to represent parameters or return values for Jersey REST services or JAX-WS web service operations.

Reported new enhancement for "REST from Entity" wizard in Java EE 6.
See the issue 189761.

The original feature was implemented, so I am changing the status to FIXED.
