Re: [xml-dev] Tool to create a Java class from an XML document?

Hi Dimitre,

No, oXygen does not provide this functionality.

Hi Ghislain,

Thank you, I found the XJC.exe tool which I believe is part of JAXB.

For information to other interested readers, Stephen Cameron and Peter
Hunsberger proposed some other alternatives such as XMLBeans and Moxy.

Oxygen was also mentioned as able to do that, and it would be good to
have a more definite confirmation, as for many of us this, if
possible, will be a very convenient way of carrying out the class
generation task.

Hi Dimitre,

I don't know if there is an undisputed de-facto standard, but I often hear
about JAXB, which may be the kind of technology you are looking for.


I have to add though that I do not have experience with it, as I use XQuery
for processing schemas and instances (yay! :-) ).

Which is the best (de-facto standard) tool to use for generating a
Java class definition from an XML document instance?

In the .NET world we have xsd.exe [1]  and it can be used to do
exactly that. Unfortunately, in this particular case a Java class
needs to be generated -- not a C# one.

Truly great madness cannot be achieved without significant intelligence.
To invent, you need a good imagination and a pile of junk
Never fight an inanimate object
To avoid situations in which you might make mistakes may be the
biggest mistake of all
Quality means doing it right when no one is looking.
You've achieved success in your field when you don't know whether what
you're doing is work or play
To achieve the impossible dream, try going to sleep.
Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.
Typing monkeys will write all Shakespeare's works in 200yrs.Will they
write all patents, too? :)
Sanity is madness put to good use.
I finally figured out the only reason to be alive is to enjoy it.
