Generate XML Schema documentation the easy way with XS3P I have to work with the CDA XML schema on a regular basis and sometimes it is easier to check things either via a tool that can visualise the schema or through hyperlinked documentation that describes the schema in a concise way. Unfortunately, as I found out, most tools can't handle a complex schema that has multiple cyclic references within it. So what's the solution? Use a tool that doesn't analyse the XSD! This is where xs3p comes in.
JiBX fails to generate Java XML bindings for schemas with circular references I wanted to compare how JiBX stacks against JAXB in terms of performance. From their website, they claim "It also provides very high performance, outperforming all other Java data binding tools across a wide variety of tests.". This sounded great, especially since I've identified that JAXB is a bottleneck. I downloaded JiBX 1.2.6 and proceeded to generate my bindings, only to find that it could not handle my schema.
