Subject [jira] [Created] (CXF-5375) xjc-javadoc plugin for generating more javadocs from xsd:documentation
Date Sun, 03 Nov 2013 20:05:17 GMT
David Pytel created CXF-5375:

             Summary: xjc-javadoc plugin for generating more javadocs from xsd:documentation
                 Key: CXF-5375
             Project: CXF
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Tooling
            Reporter: David Pytel

Answering Stackoverflow question:
I noticed that there is a lack of support for xsd:documentation in XJC. Generated code representing
some elements (like properties or attributes) does not have proper javadocs based on xsd:documentation.
There is JAXB bug raised:
but it is not resolved for over 7 years. There is also link to CXF bug CXF-2486 and there
is Dan Kulp's comment:
If you'd like to donate the code to CXF, we could certainly use it. CXF
already has a couple plugins to workaround XJC issues. 

However I didn't see such a plugin in CXF project, I didn't found it on the internet. So I
decided to try to develop one. The result is available at my github account:
The plugin solves CXF-2486 problem (output java file is available as attachment) and makes
generated files better documented. I am willing to contribute this plugin to CXF XJC utils

I tested it on several larger XSD files, also there are few almost end-to-end automated tests.

Please let me know whether you are interested in taking over this plugin and what modifications
do you expect.
