Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Java 11 (OpenJDK 11): javax.xml.bind package removed


this probably comes after the battle (sorry for that!) - reminded me this thread... - so for the record:

at this point of time (and in the past) we recommend using com.sun.xml.bind:jaxb-osgi artifact for usage in OSGi environment. It contains full JAXB-RI runtime + tooling (xjc/schemaGen). Should this, for whatever reason, be too big jar, go ahead, file an issue @ and we can follow up there.

Are other teams affected by the removal of the javax.xml.bind package from Java 11?

Web Tools Platform (WTP) Web services has 'unresolved' references when running with Java 11. See

The solution would simply be to pull the javax.xml.bind package into WTP (from orbit), but, it was originally pulled out of WTP because of due to OSGi wiring issues. If we proceed with this solution, we might re-introduce the wiring issues when using a Java level (non-Java 11) that contains the deprecated packages.

The info in the two bugzillas indicate that other teams might be impacted by this. Dali (eg. eclipselink packages) and MyLyn. Thoughts?
