maven jaxb2 plugin configuration

Hi All,

I'm not sure, if this question should be actually posted into this forum or JAXB forum. But please move this post to a relevant forum, if you feel so.

I have a project structure like below (please see the attachment)

schemas folder under src/main/resources is an archive file with several xsd.
Now I have my bindings file (.xjb) under src/main/resources/xjb and have some customizations for a schema say, com/domain/sample.xsd.

Before this step is executed, we are expanding the archived file to the location given by "${}/expanded-schemas-${version}"

When I ran this pom, bindings is complaining apparently because it could not find sample.xsd, because it is trying to look for that file with respect to the path "${project.basedir}/src/main/resources/xjb/" this is where the binding file is residing.

So, with out giving the absolute path in bindings file, is there any way to give an indicator such the bindings file need to look for the rquired xsd with respect to <schemaDirectory> instead of <bindingDirectory>

Please advise.

I'm a little lost. Based on your description I don't know where sample.xsd is located. Could you please give the full path (relative to the project's base directory) for sample.xsd. If it is multiple places at the time the build fails, lists every location.

It would also help if you posted the full error message you got from Maven. I think I understand what the error is, but I'm not sure.

I agree. Here's the link:
