Generating an XML Schema

To generate an XML schema from a Java object model:

  1. Create a class that extends javax.xml.bind.SchemaOutputResolver.
    private class MySchemaOutputResolver extends SchemaOutputResolver {
        public Result createOutput(String namespaceURI, String suggestedFileName) throws IOException {
            File file = new File(suggestedFileName);
            StreamResult result = new StreamResult(file);
            return result;
  2. Use an instance of this class with JAXBContext to capture the generated XML Schema.
    Class[] classes = new Class[4]; 
    classes[0] = org.example.customer_example.AddressType.class; 
    classes[1] = org.example.customer_example.ContactInfo.class; 
    classes[2] = org.example.customer_example.CustomerType.class; 
    classes[3] = org.example.customer_example.PhoneNumber.class; 
    JAXBContext jaxbContext = JAXBContext.newInstance(classes);
    SchemaOutputResolver sor = new MySchemaOutputResolver();
