How to Use

Download zip package from repository mentioned in version history below, latest stable release is 0.6.1, then extract the zip file and run mxjc script in command line:

Usage: mxjc [-options ...] <schema file/URL/dir> ... [-b <bindinfo>] ...
If dir is specified, all schema files in it will be compiled.
Options:
  -nano              :  target Nano for Android as code generation target (default)
  -privateField      :  generate private fields, accessed by public accessors, only for nano binding
  -pico              :  target Pico for IOS as code generation target
  -prefix <prefix>   :  add prefix to the target classes, only for pico binding
                        (recommended to avoid possible name conflict)
  -nv                :  do not perform strict validation of the input schema(s)
  -b <file/dir>      :  specify external bindings files (each <file> must have its own -b)
                        If a directory is given, **/*.xjb is searched
  -d <dir>           :  generated files will go into this directory
  -p <pkg>           :  specifies the target package
  -httpproxy <proxy> :  set HTTP/HTTPS proxy. Format is [user[:password]@]proxyHost:proxyPort
  -httpproxyfile <f> :  Works like -httpproxy but takes the argument in a file to protect password
  -readOnly          :  generated files will be in read-only mode
  -xmlschema         :  treat input as W3C XML Schema (default)
  -wsdl              :  treat input as WSDL and compile schemas inside it (experimental,unsupported)
  -verbose           :  be extra verbose
  -quiet             :  suppress compiler output
  -help              :  display this help message
  -version           :  display version information
