This example shows how to map a user-defined XML Schema type to a custom
C++ class. It presents the simple case where the customized type is not
used as a base in the same schema. For the complex case see the taxonomy
example. For more information on the C++/Tree mapping customization see
the C++/Tree Mapping Customization Guide.
The example consists of the following files:
XML Schema definition for a simple contacts database.
Sample XML instance document.
C++ types that represent the given vocabulary and a set of parsing
functions that convert XML instance documents to a tree-like in-memory
object model. These are generated by XSD from contacts.xsd with the
--custom-type option in order to to customize the contact type.
Header file which defines our own contact class by inheriting from the
generated contact_base. It is included at the end of contacts.hxx using
the --hxx-epilogue option.
Source file which contains the implementation of our contact class.
Driver for the example. It first calls one of the parsing functions
that constructs the object model from the input file. It then prints
the contacts to STDERR.
To run the example on the sample XML instance document simply execute:
$ ./driver contacts.xml
