[ANN] CodeSynthesis XSD 2.3.0 - Open-source XML Schema to C++ compiler

From: Boris Kolpackov <boris@codesynthesis.com>

I am pleased to announce the availability of CodeSynthesis XSD 2.3.0.

CodeSynthesis XSD is an open-source, cross-platform W3C XML Schema to
C++ data binding compiler. Provided with a schema, it generates C++
classes that represent the given vocabulary as well as parsing and
serialization code. You can then access the data stored in XML using
types and functions that semantically correspond to your application
domain rather than dealing with elements, attributes, and text in a
direct representation of XML such as DOM or SAX.

XSD supports both in-memory and stream-oriented processing models by
implementing two C++ mappings: C++/Tree and C++/Parser. The C++/Tree
mapping represents the information stored in XML instance documents
as a tree-like, in-memory data structure. The C++/Parser mapping
generates parser templates for data types defined in XML Schema. Using
these parser templates you can build your own in-memory representations
or perform immediate processing of XML instance documents.

Major new features in this version:

  * Support for IBM XL C++
  * Support for Solaris on x86 and GNU/Linux on PowerPC
  * Escaping of conflicting identifiers across inheritance hierarchies


  * Option to suppress generation of parsing code
  * Option to generate forward declaration headers
  * Customization of the generated and XML Schema built-in types
  * New example and guide that show how to use XSD with Berkeley DB XML


  * Validation of the attribute structure
  * Validation of the character content models including mixed content
  * Validation of the built-in XML Schema types
  * Optimizations for space and time in the generated code

For a complete list of new feature see


XSD is available on GNU/Linux, HP-UX, Mac OS X, Solaris, and Windows.
Supported C++ compilers include: GNU g++, HP aCC, Intel C++, Sun C++,
IBM XL C++, and MS Visual C++.

More information as well as precompiled binaries for all supported
platforms are available from
