JAXB2 Maven Plugin

Welcome to the org.jvnet.jaxb2.maven2:maven-jaxb2-plugin, the most advanced and feature-full Maven plugin for XML Schema compilation.

This Maven plugin wraps and enhances the JAXB Schema Compiler (XJC) and allows compiling XML Schemas (as well as WSDL, DTDs, RELAX NG) into Java classes in Maven builds.

If you are interested in the Mojohaus JAXB2 Maven Plugin (org.codehaus.mojo:jaxb2-maven-plugin), please follow this link to the corresponding website.

Quick start

  • Put your schemas (*.xsd) and bindings (*.xjb) into the src/main/resources folder.
  • Add the plugin to your pom.xml:
<project ...>
	...
	<build>
		<plugins>
			...
			<plugin>
				<groupId>org.jvnet.jaxb2.maven2</groupId>
				<artifactId>maven-jaxb2-plugin</artifactId>
				<version>0.14.0</version>
				<executions>
					<execution>
						<goals>
							<goal>generate</goal>
						</goals>
					</execution>
				</executions>
			</plugin>
			...
		</plugins>
	</build>
	...
</project>
