JAXB XmlAdapter with @Inject

DiFrango, Ronald (CONT)

We recently upgraded from:




I’m not sure if this is a Jersey, Moxy, or HK2 issue, but I’m going to try to explain what we have:

public class A {
    public static class MyXmlAdapter extends XmlAdapter<String, ReferenceId> {
        private MyService service;

        public A unmarshal(String value) throws Exception {
            return service.convertToA(value);

        public String marshal(A a) throws Exception {
            return service.convertToString(value);

Now on my resource if I declare it as t

public A createOne(A a) {
        return a;

The service != null on MyXmlAdapter so it works

Another variation that also works is:

public class B {
   private List<A> entries;
   public List<A> getEntries() {
        return entries;

But if I declare the type as of list:

 public A createOne(List<A> a) {
        return a;

service == null on MyXmlAdapter so it fails.
