JDK 11 Compatibility and Usage Guideline

The API is optimized for Java 11 environment and all the tests and functionality works fine. However, for some classes you should add the external dependency to add classpath of the class: javax.xml.bind.annotation.adapters.HexBinaryAdapter, which was deleted from JRE.

For example:


 <dependency>

    <groupId>javax.xml.bind</groupId>

    <artifactId>jaxb-api</artifactId>

    <version>2.3.0</version>

</dependency>
