I was able to generate schema derived classes from command line but now I dont know how to Unmarshall XML doc into JAva Objects.

Thanks in Adavance.

I'm not quite sure what you are asking - seems that there are two questions:

1. How do I run the JAXB binding compiler from Eclipse?

Include a build.xml file in your project that makes use of Sun's XJCTask ant-task (in jaxb-xjc.jar for JAXB 1.0).

Right-click (the build.xml in your project)
Run As
Ant Build

Note that jaxb-xjc.jar is in the "lib" directory specified by the classpath.

2. How do I unmarshal an XML document to a Java content-tree?

Sun's JWSDP 1.6 samples shows how:

To run the (JAXB 1.0) examples you will need to add


from the JWSDP 1.6 distribution to your project's Java Build Path.

jaxb\lib\jaxb-xjc.jar is only needed for its ant task and to compile the bindings.
