3.3. Customizing XML Schema binding

3.3.1. How to get simple and better typed binding

wsimport uses JAXB RI's XJC tool internally to achive XML Schema to Java binding. The default behaviour is strictly as per JAXB 2.x specification. However it does not work for everyone, for example if you want to map xs:anyURI to java.net.URI instead of java.lang.String (default mapping).

There is a JAXB global customization that can help you achieve these tasks:

  • Eliminating JAXBElements as much as possible
  • Giving you a better, more typed binding in general
  • Using plural property names where applicable
simple.xjb - This enables the simple binding mode

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
  xmlns:jaxb="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/jaxb" jaxb:version="2.0"
  xmlns:xjc= "http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/jaxb/xjc" jaxb:extensionBindingPrefixes="xjc">

    <xjc:simple />

Then simply run your wsimport and pass this binding customization file

wsimport -p mypackage -keep -b simple.xjb myservice.wsdl
