package feign.jaxb;
Encodes requests using JAXB.

Basic example with with Feign.Builder:

 JAXBContextFactory jaxbFactory = new JAXBContextFactory.Builder()
      .withMarshallerSchemaLocation("http://apihost http://apihost/schema.xsd")

 api = Feign.builder()
            .encoder(new JAXBEncoder(jaxbFactory))
            .target(MyApi.class, "http://api");

The JAXBContextFactory should be reused across requests as it caches the created JAXB contexts.

public class JAXBEncoder implements Encoder {
    private final JAXBContextFactory jaxbContextFactory;
    public JAXBEncoder(JAXBContextFactory jaxbContextFactory) {
        this. = jaxbContextFactory;
    public void encode(Object objectRequestTemplate templatethrows EncodeException {
        try {
            Marshaller marshaller = .createMarshaller(object.getClass());
            StringWriter stringWriter = new StringWriter();
        } catch (JAXBException e) {
            throw new EncodeException(e.toString(), e);
