As David points out, this issue appears to have been fixed last year by 
adding a new option to xjc. I don't know why isn't showing 
the up to date bug but there has been some ongoing glitches with the 
mirroring of the bugs. I'll ask the folks who maintain this to see if 
this can be resolved.

In any case, it's worth remembering that the JAX* components are 
maintained in the upstream jaxp and jax-ws projects so this is why you 
don't see the code in the jdk7 forest. The jaxws repository in the 
forest will build it from a local copy of the source or it can download 
it. The .hg/store tree is where mercurial keeps its internal data 
structures so you probably don't want to be changing files in there. The 
sources you see in there are probably from 2009, when OpenJDK ceased to 
maintain its own copy of the this code.
