Subject [jira] Commented: (CXF-2041) XmlTransient annotation seems to be ignored
Date Sun, 15 Feb 2009 21:36:59 GMT


Benson Margulies commented on CXF-2041:

You have the @XmlTransient in the wrong place. It needs to be on the setter for the property,
not on the private field. It's the setter that JAXB is looking at.

When I changed this, started to stop emitting the 'parent' field.

Your junit test continued to fail, but I didn't debug that.

> Properties marked with @XmlTransient  should be prevented from being mapped to XML. For
two objects with a parent-child relationship where the object references are bi-directional,
properties annotated accordingly should be ignored during marshalling. I have tried different
options, but could never observe that @XmlTransient is actually taken into account.

> I could imagine that some problems arise when using another spring version than the one
packaged with CXF, but I think there should not be issues in such a limited scenario. Either
the documentation is missing important parameters or there is actually a problem somewhere.
