 * Generates a wrapper element around XML representation.
 * This is primarily intended to be used to produce a wrapper
 * XML element around collections. The annotation therefore supports
 * two forms of serialization shown below. 
 * <pre>{@code
 *    //Example: code fragment
 *      int[] names;
 *    // XML Serialization Form 1 (Unwrapped collection)
 *    <names> ... </names>
 *    <names> ... </names>
 *    // XML Serialization Form 2 ( Wrapped collection )
 *    <wrapperElement>
 *       <names> value-of-item </names>
 *       <names> value-of-item </names>
 *       ....
 *    </wrapperElement>
 * }</pre>
 * <p> The two serialized XML forms allow a null collection to be
 * represented either by absence or presence of an element with a
 * nillable attribute.
 * <p> <b>Usage</b> </p>
 * <p>
 * The {@code @XmlElementWrapper} annotation can be used with the
 * following program elements: 
 * <ul> 
 *   <li> JavaBean property </li>
 *   <li> non static, non transient field </li>
 * </ul>
 * <p>The usage is subject to the following constraints:
 * <ul>
 *   <li> The property must be a collection property </li>
 *   <li> This annotation can be used with the following annotations:
 *            {@link XmlElement}, 
 *            {@link XmlElements},
 *            {@link XmlElementRef},
 *            {@link XmlElementRefs},
 *            {@link XmlJavaTypeAdapter}.</li>
 * </ul>
 * <p>See "Package Specification" in javax.xml.bind.package javadoc for
 * additional common information.</p>

@Target({ FIELD, METHOD })
public @interface XmlElementWrapper {
     * Name of the XML wrapper element. By default, the XML wrapper
     * element name is derived from the JavaBean property name.
    String name() default "##default";

     * XML target namespace of the XML wrapper element.
     * <p>
     * If the value is "##default", then the namespace is determined
     * as follows:
     * <ol>
     *  <li>
     *  If the enclosing package has {@link XmlSchema} annotation,
     *  and its {@link XmlSchema#elementFormDefault() elementFormDefault}
     *  is {@link XmlNsForm#QUALIFIED QUALIFIED}, then the namespace of
     *  the enclosing class.
     *  <li>
     *  Otherwise "" (which produces unqualified element in the default
     *  namespace.
     * </ol>
    String namespace() default "##default";

     * If true, the absence of the collection is represented by
     * using {@code xsi:nil='true'}. Otherwise, it is represented by
     * the absence of the element.
    boolean nillable() default false;

     * Customize the wrapper element declaration to be required.
     * <p>
     * If required() is true, then the corresponding generated
     * XML schema element declaration will have {@code minOccurs="1"},
     * to indicate that the wrapper element is always expected.
     * <p>
     * Note that this only affects the schema generation, and
     * not the unmarshalling or marshalling capability. This is
     * simply a mechanism to let users express their application constraints
     * better.
