The Apache CXF XJC-Utils subproject provides a bunch of utilities for working with JAXB to generate better or more usable code.

Currently, it consists of the following modules:

cxf-xjc-plugin

Provides a maven wrapper around the JAXB XJC utility

cxf-xjc-dv

Initialize fields mapped from elements/attributes with their default values

cxf-xjc-ts

Implements the toString() method

cxf-xjc-boolean

Generate getters named getXXX() for Booleans instead of isXXX()

cxf-xjc-wsdlextension

Adds extensions methods to allow generated beans to be used as WSDL4J extensors

cxf-xjc-bug671

Provides a workaround for

The xjc plugins are only code generation utilities and not used at all at runtime which is why they were pulled out.
