Usage

If you've never used a Maven plugin before please take a look at Maven's Getting Started Guide.

To use the plugin in your project you have to add it to the plugins section of your POM.

<plugin>
  <groupId>org.jibx</groupId>
  <artifactId>jibx-maven-plugin</artifactId>
  <version>1.2.6</version>
  <executions>
    <execution>
      <goals>
        <goal>bind</goal>
      </goals>
    </execution>
  </executions>
</plugin>

The project also needs to include jibx-run and optionally jibx-extras in its dependencies.

<dependency>
  <groupId>org.jibx</groupId>
  <artifactId>jibx-run</artifactId>
  <version>1.2.6</version>
</dependency>
<dependency>
  <groupId>org.jibx</groupId>
  <artifactId>jibx-extras</artifactId>
  <version>1.2.6</version>
</dependency>

The plugin supports the following configuration options.

option default description
schemaBindingDirectory src/main/config In which directory to search for binding definitions.
includeschemaBindings binding.xml Which files in the configuration directory to include as binding definitions.
excludeschemaBindings none Which files in the configuration directory that will be matched by one the include patterns to exclude.
multi-module false Control flag to enable multi-module mode. (See modes.html#Multi-module mode)

Example

This example would include all files ending in -binding.xml except template-binding.xml in the src/main/jibx directory and output verbose messages during binding compilation:

<plugin>
  <groupId>org.jibx</groupId>
  <artifactId>jibx-maven-plugin</artifactId>
  <version>1.2.6</version>
  <configuration>
    <schemaBindingDirectory>src/main/jibx</schemaBindingDirectory>
    <includeSchemaBindings>
      <includeSchemaBindings>*-binding.xml</includeSchemaBindings>
    </includeSchemaBindings>
    <excludeSchemaBindings>
      <excludeSchemaBinding>template-binding.xml</excludeSchemaBinding>
    </excludeSchemaBindings>
    <verbose>true</verbose>
  </configuration>
  <executions>
    <execution>
      <goals>
        <goal>bind</goal>
      </goals>
    </execution>
  </executions>
</plugin>
