i'm playing with jaxb today and now i cant seem to get schemagen task to generate a schema for me. i am using java 6 and ant through eclipse and at some point i found some jar files to build the ant task but now it gives me this error:
[echo] Generating schemas... [schemagen] Generating schema from 5 source files [schemagen] Problem encountered during annotation processing; [schemagen] see stacktrace below for more information. [schemagen] java.lang.LinkageError: JAXB 2.0 API is being loaded from the bootstrap classloader, but this RI (from jar:file:/C:/Users/phreakzilla/Workspace/eclipse/eclipse3.3/Java%20XML%20Sandbox/build/jaxb-impl.jar!/com/sun/xml/bind/v2/model/impl/ModelBuilder.class) needs 2.1 API.

I think i just need to get jaxb-impl jar for jaxb 2.0 but i have no idea where to find it. any ideas?
Actually, according to your stack trace, you already have a jaxb-impl.jar in C:\Users\phreakzilla\Workspace\eclipse\eclipse3.3\Java XML Sandbox\build. The problem is, that location isn't blessed as a properly secure loading location. Since the stack trace also mentions a URL on how to fix the problem, I recommend going to that location and reading what it says to do.
