This example will demonstrate how to use EclipseLink MOXy to generate an XML schema with element constraints from a Java Class with Bean Validation constraints.In particular, see the firstName field in Customer.java
This example will also demonstrate the reverse - generating a Java Class with Bean Validation constraints from an XML schema with element constraints.
Support for Bean Validation constraints with XML Schema is a feature specific to EclipseLink.
To generate an XML Schema from a Java class, execute:
The generated XML schema (schema1.xsd) will be in the target directory: target/schema1.xsd
To generate Java classes from an XML schema, follow these two steps: 1) Set ECLIPSELINK_HOME to your EclipseLink 2.6.0+ installation 2) Execute GenerateJavaClasses.sh (or .cmd on Windows) to generate the model from the schema1.xsd (generated from ‘mvn install’ above). The generated class, Customer.java will be under the ‘out’ directory
