Can someone help me modify my program below so it will serialize a map to standard output? Sun had documented a bug several years ago concerning the serialization of maps and I am hoping it has been fixed by now.
Thanks,
Siegfried

I ran that code (with the XML from the comments before it) and it produced this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?><demoMaps><datum name="xyz_modified"><value>Insert your sample data here_modified</value></datum><datum name="abc"><value>def</value></datum><map/></demoMaps>



Looks okay to me, except for that empty <map> element at the end. Was that what you were referring to? Is it a problem?

Edit: looking at your code it looks like you were expecting the contents of the map to be serialized as well. At least that's what I would expect. So if that's the bug (you didn't say what this bug was) then it's still there.

It'd be easier if you just said what issue you're having. The code works as-is for me once the command is fixed:That ">" at the beginning of line 2 shouldn't be there.

Oh, the map.

Don't you need @XmlJavaTypeAdapter to do maps?

Sorry -- yup. The map is empty. That is the problem I was hoping was fixed by now. Wow! sun sure is slow at fixing these things.

I'm trying to implement the suggested code at http://www.caucho.com/resin/doc/jaxb-annotations.xtp#@XmlJavaTypeAdapter and I need some help.

Can someone help me implement the marshal and unmarshal methods? I'm having trouble understand how class Temp works. Why would marshal return a single temp? Wouldn't it return a java.util.list<Temp>?

Perhaps the problem is that eclipse generated the stub for marshal and unmarshal incorrectly?

Thanks,
Siegfried

I figured it out.

I have a new question now! See my new post.

Thanks,
