> h2. The problem
> The SIS {{MarshallerPool}} class uses the {{NamespacePrefixMapper}} class from the {{com.sun.xml.internal.bind}}
package. We are obviously not supposed to use this internal class, but research on Internet
3 years ago suggested that they were no way (at least at that time) to specify the root namespace
(the namespace that do not need prefix) and to customize the prefixes. Worst, this internal
feature was [advertised|]
as customizable by the following properties:
> * {{com.sun.xml.internal.bind.NamespacePrefixMapper}} (bundled JAXB)
> * {{com.sun.xml.bind.NamespacePrefixMapper}} (endorsed JAXB)
> Furthermore the {{NamespacePrefixMapper}} javadoc said: "_Implemented by the user application
to determine URI -> prefix mapping_".
> As an alternative, research on Internet suggests that the {{javax.xml.bind.annotation.XmlSchema}}
annotation works as expected in JDK7, but JDK6 users have to use the endorsed JAXB version
2.2.4 or above. Bundled versions are:
> * Java 1.6.0_37 is bundled with JAXB 2.1.10, so {{@XmlSchema}} doesn't seem to work on
that platform.
> * Java 1.7.0_15 is bundled with JAXB 2.2.4-2, so {{@XmlSchema}} would work on that platform
but we still have to check if it really works for us.
> Note that the {{NamespacePrefixMapper}} approach is still advertised even in the [JAXB
2.2.6 documentation|].
> h2. Using {{NamespacePrefixMapper}}
> If the {{@XmlSchema}} annotations do not work, or if we want to be compatible with the
JAXB version bundled in JDK6, then we may have to keep the {{NamespacePrefixMapper}} hack.
Problem is that the {{javac}} compiler normally blocks attempts to use this {{com.sun.xml.internal}}
class. A workaround found on Internet (not yet tested) is to use the following compiler option:
> {noformat}
> -XDignore.symbol.file
> {noformat}
> If the above does not work, an alternative is to put {{rt.jar}} on the classpath as a
Maven dependency using {{<scope>system</scope>}}. But this work only for Oracle
> An other alternative is to put a {{com.sun.xml.internal.bind.NamespacePrefixMapper}}
class with only the method signature in the {{sis-utility}} module, and exclude that class
from the JAR file. The {{maven-jar-plugin}} [provides an exclusion mechanism|]
for that kind of purpose, but I have been unable to make it work. We may have to use (again)
our {{sis-build-helper}} module for deleting the {{com/**}} files before JAR packaging.
