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:
https://java.net/jira/browse/JAXB-172
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:
https://github.com/destin/xjc-javadoc-plugin
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
(http://cxf.apache.org/xjc-utils.html).

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.
