Hi,

I'm using JAXB and also Hibernate. But, I got a problem with Hibernate and XmlGregorianCalendar.

Below is a part of my class witch works with JAXB.
...
public class test
{
    ...
    @XmlElement(name = "Created", required = true)
    protected XMLGregorianCalendar created;
    @XmlElement(name = "CreatedBy", required = true)
    protected String createdBy;
    @XmlElement(name = "Changed", required = true)
    protected XMLGregorianCalendar changed;
    @XmlElement(name = "ChangedBy", required = true)
    protected String changedBy;
    ...

Open in new window

The problem I got now is that I don't know what to do to get it to work with Hibernate and how to create a mapping file to this class when using XMLGregorianCalendar. If I change XMLGregorianCalendar to java.util.Date I get it to work with Hibernate but not with JAXB.

Is there any solution to this?

I'd suggest using different beans for jaxb and hibernate, specifying the mapping for both in one class gets messy.
And you can get your jaxb class automatically generated from your xml schema

I generally map the actual bean with hibernate
and generate a seperate bean (from the xsd) for exporting/importing from xml.
Then you just need a utility method to convert between the two when you need to go to/from xml

> Is it somthing like this you meean?

yes, though we usually start with an xsd schema, and generate the classes directly from that
