How to create pojo classes from XSD?


I am using Spring maven plugin, I want to create POJO classes from specified xml schema in particular folder. I tried with xjc command through java code, but its not generating that classes. secondly, I tried with jaxb, but its dealing with xml file not a xsd schema while marshell/unmarshelling. I think this not a way to create POJO from xsd.

What is a correct way to generate classes from xsd in java?

below is XSD

   <xs:schema xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
   <xs:element name="Employee">
   <xs:complexType>
   <xs:sequence>
    <xs:element name="empId" type="xs:long"/>
    <xs:element name="lastName" type="xs:string"/>
    <xs:element name="title" type="xs:string"/>
    <xs:element name="salary" type="xs:integer"/>
    <xs:element name="address">
    <xs:complexType>
       <xs:sequence>
         <xs:element name="city" type="xs:string"/>
         <xs:element name="street" type="xs:string"/>
         <xs:element name="zipcode" type="xs:integer"/>
         <xs:element name="privatePhoneNo">
           <xs:complexType>
             <xs:sequence>
                 <xs:element name="privateMobile" type="xs:string"/>
                 <xs:element name="privateLandline" type="xs:string"/>
             </xs:sequence>
           </xs:complexType>
         </xs:element>
        </xs:sequence>
     </xs:complexType>
    </xs:element>
 </xs:sequence>
 </xs:complexType>
 </xs:element>
 </xs:schema>

My recommendation is to go with JAXB.

I have tested it in eclipse, works well for me. My suggestion is try generating the POJO from command line or with the help of eclipse. Once successful configure it with maven to generate the POJO build time.
