Hehe, For both JAXB is not the main API but something added.

Looks like properties are not accessible (POJO standard meaning)

Well the confusion is quite common but incubating is not about code but
linked to Apache community. Documentation is for sure not very verbose but
help is welcomed and I think you are one of the most accurate person to do
that at the moment cause you are the first one really getting issues. If
you are interested just contact us on johnzon list and we'll help you to
work on the doc.
