XML Schema to C++ translator

'xsd' is a W3C XML Schema to C++ translator. It generates a vocabulary-specific, statically-typed C++ mapping (also called binding) from XML Schema definitions. The mapping consists of data types that represent the given vocabulary, a set of parsing functions that convert XML instance documents to a tree-like in-memory data structure, and a set of serialization functions that convert the in-memory representation back to XML. 'xsd' features C++ standard library-based language mapping, configurable base character type (char/wchar_t), support for all XML Schema built-in types, custom Schema to C++ namespace mapping, platform-independent generated code, and more.
