JAXB 2.1 released

Posted by kohsuke on December 18, 2006 at 8:52 AM PST

I'm happy to announce the availability of the JAXB 2.1 specification and the JAXB RI 2.1 FCS (FCS="first customer ship.") This is a release, not an early access, so it means we passed all the tests, TCKs, and the bugs that I know of are fixed.

I've been blogging about the list of proposed 2.1 features, as well as details of individual features, like separate compilation.

If you'll be using JAXB 2.1 with JDK6, you'll have to use the endorsed directory mechanism to override JAXB 2.0 API in JDK with JAXB 2.1 API (this can be done by either a system property — normal — or putting the jar in a certain pre-defined directory — rare.)

As usual, the jars are also in the maven repository.
