I'm just trying out scalaxb for the first time. I ran my W3C schema through it, and gave scalaxb the main package name of my project. When I tried to compile the generated files, I got:

[error] /usr/home/mackler/myProject/src/main/scala/xmlprotocol.scala:9: package is already defined as package myPackage
[error] object `package` extends XMLProtocol { }
[error]        ^
[error] one error found
[error] (compile:compile) Compilation failed
[error] Total time: 6 s, completed Oct 19, 2012 3:42:32 AM

Perhaps it is because I already have a package object defined in the package that I used for the scalaxb files. When I gave scalaxb it's own package name the error went away. I'm just guessing since there's nothing in the documentation warning users about package objects clashing with scalaxb.


Good point. I should document somewhere to use package name that's not being used.
