Generating Java Classes from an XML Schema

Use the JAXB Compiler to generate Java classes from an XML schema. The generated classes will contain JAXB annotations that represent the XML binding metadata.

Running the JAXB Compiler

Use the .sh or .cmd file to run the JAXB compiler:

<ECLIPSELINK_HOME>/eclipselink/bin/jaxb-compiler.sh &lt;source-file.xsd&gt; [-options]


 &lt;ECLIPSELINK_HOME&gt;\eclipselink\bin\jaxb-compiler.cmd &lt;source-file.xsd&gt; [-options]


This table describes the available JAXB Compiler options:

JAXB Compiler options
-d <directory> Specifies the output directory for the generated files.
-p <package> Specifies the target package
-classpath <arg> Specifies where to find user class files
-verbose Enables the compiler output
-quiet Disables the compiler output
-version Displays the compiler version information


For example:

jaxb-compiler.sh -d jaxb-compiler-output config/Customer.xsd

To display a complete list of compiler options, use:

jaxb-compiler.sh -help
