Currently, EclipseLink MOXy supports the mapping of Java fields
and properties to XML. Said another way; in order to map data to
XML, the user must have an existing Java field or property to map.
To support multi-tenancy, we will be allowing the user to add
additional mappings at runtime. Because these new mappings would
not have existing fields / properties on the Java class to map
to, we will introduce the concept of "flex extensions", where we
can instead map the elements of a Java Map to the desired XML.
I'd like to have a meeting to review the requirements and
high-level design for this feature. For people in Ottawa we'll
meet in conference room 5012, for other who would like to dial
in, please contact me for dial-in information.
