Keep in mind that there is difference between using JAXB annotations
(which Jackson can use for configuration alongside its own
annotations), and JAXB the framework.
It sounds like former might work for you, so it is worth considering.
JAXB framework can be used with fragments, but that does force use of
mapped conventions (badgerfish or equivalent) which has its own

Jackson can do streaming as well as JAXB/Stax (partly because its
internal design is similar: low-level parser/generator, data binder as
separate layer), so the general method for doing this is similar.
