I am using https://mvnrepository.com/artifact/jml/jaxb-api/2.1 .



then the Default Value of 'help2' is correctly set to 'false'. But if I do not send the field at all

then result of 'help2' is null, however I still want 'help2' to be the DefaultValue.

In essence I want jaxb to handle a missing 'help2' field equivalent to <help2/>.

So what to do?

As you've seen, JAXB won't do that for you if the element is missing entirely.

If you need a default value I suppose you could just assign it in the Java:


It does look a little odd, though.

Thank you. The solution worked. I tried it earlier, but because of a Mixup in Project Versions in Maven, it failed.
