Hi
Is anyone can clearly answer what is 'binding' and what is 'mapping' here. in Richard Monson-Haefel 's book no any touch about JAXB, instead of mapping xml schma to Java, it seems a same topic with the JAXB in Java web Service Tutoral and the testing objectives. marshal/unmarshal concepts seems very important, but no any metioned in Richard' book.
Thnaks.
Ely :roll:

Ely,
In this context, I think of "binding" as the "runtime execution" of "mapping". The runtime process by which the provider populates data from xml -> java and other way around.
example: Which attribute in xml has to be mapped to which property in java is specified by mapping.
How it is performed at runtime (by using pre-compiled mapping classes or reflection) is performed by binding.
Any thoughts guys?
Dushy

Binding generate JAXB classes using JAXB binding compiler. I am not sure about JAXB mapping
