When dealing with SOAP based web services you need a WSDL to create a stub with a WSDL2Java compiler. The WSDL refers to XML Schemas but the schemas themselves are not enough. What that WSDL2Java compiler is called depends on the web service toolkit that you are using.
I want to know how to generate the java classes from XSD.
Now if you are simply retrieving an XML document over an HTTP connection then you can use JAXB to do the (un)marshalling.

JAXB is part of the standard Java distribution starting with Java SE 6 and Java EE 5. XmlBeans is an open source project that predates JAXB - it will always be separate and never be part of the standard Java distribution.
JAXB 1.0 requires Java 1.4. JAXB 2.0 requires Java 1.5. Some XmlBeans versions probably work with pre-1.4.
