Reading unspecified XML attributes with MOXy? [message #1726499] Mon, 14 March 2016 10:15

I'm looking for a way to map all the attributes of an XML element into a single HashMap using MOXy (with an external OXM file) but I can't seem to find any information on it. I can't seem to find any references to dealing with multiple, unspecified attributes with either XmlAdapter instances or XmlTransformation instances.

If I have the below XML file and wish to marshal it into the below class, what would the best approach be?

Note that I can handle the "value" elements fine, it's the attributes I'm having trouble with; they should ideally map the XML attributes as...

[{"name", "firstElement"}, {"id", "idOne"}, {"author", "joeBloggs"}]

XML File:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <element name="firstElement" id="idOne" author="joeBloggs">

Java Class:

public class Element {

    public Map<String, String> attributes;

    public List<Integer> values;

    public List<String> getValues() {
        if(values == null) {
            values = new ArrayList<>();
        return values;

    public Map<String, String> getAttributes() {
        if(attributes == null) {
            attributes = new HashMap<>();
        return attributes;
