[ANN] CodeSynthesis XSD 3.0.0 - Open-source XML Schema to C++ compiler

I am pleased to announce the availability of CodeSynthesis XSD 3.0.0.

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 object model. The C++/Parser mapping
generates parser skeletons for data types defined in XML Schema. Using
these parser skeletons you can build your own in-memory representations
or perform immediate processing of XML documents.

Major new features in this release:


  * Generation of documentation in the Doxygen format.
  * New XML Schema wildcards mapping which represents the matched
    content as DOM fragments.
  * Support for binary serialization in the XDR format.
  * Support for polymorphic binary serialization.
  * New Getting Started guide.


  * Parser implementations for all built-in XML Schema types.
  * Automatic generation of sample parser implementations and test drivers.
  * Support for parsing XML vocabularies with multiple document roots.
  * New Getting Started guide.

For a complete list of new features see


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

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