scalaxb is an XML data-binding tool for Scala that supports W3C XML Schema (xsd) and Web Services Description Language (wsdl) as the input file.


The latest is 1.1.2.
Many things still may not work. I'd really appreciate if you could run it against your favorite xsd file and let me know the result.


$ scalaxb [options] <schema_file>...
  -d <directory> | --outdir <directory>
        generated files will go into <directory>

  --contents-limit <size>
        defines long contents to be segmented (default: 20)
  --chunk-size <size>

        generates package directories
  --protocol-file <name.scala>
        protocol file name (xmlprotocol.scala)
  --protocol-package <package>

dispatchVersion in scalaxb in Compile := "0.10.0"

libraryDependencies <+=(dispatchVersion in scalaxb in Compile) { dv =>
  "net.databinder.dispatch" %% "dispatch-core" % dv
