How Can You Mix Elements And Attributes For Primitives?

I have a bean with two text properties. One needs to be mapped to an element, the other to an attribute.

I know that you can set all primitive properties to be mapped to attributes by using setAttributesForPrimitives 
but how can I map some to elements and others to attributes?

For this, you need to use a dotbetwixt file. You simply add an element tag for each properties you want to map to an element and an attribute tag for each that you want to map to an attribute.

Enhancement

A pluggable strategy to replace the simple either element or attributes would be a useful enhancement. It should also be easier to write. If anyone finds this an itch, then volunteer on the developers list :)
