How to generate ToString() with cxf-codegen-plugin ?

Solution Verified - Updated -

Environment

  • Red Hat JBoss Fuse
    • 6.x
  • Apache CXF

Issue

  • We are using cxf-codegen-plugin version 3.0.4.redhat-620133 . We want to generate toString methods from wsdl, so I add the -xjc-Xts argument and the dependency:

       ~~~
    


    org.apache.cxf.xjcplugins
    cxf-xjc-ts
    ${cxf-xjc-utils-version}

    <cxf-xjc-utils-version>3.0.2</cxf-xjc-utils-version>
    

- It fails with compilation errors:

java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.apache.cxf.xjc.runtime.JAXBToStringStyle

The generated classes use `org.apache.cxf.xjc.runtime.JAXBToStringStyle` to create the toString methods . 

- It seems we need to use, 


org.apache.cxf.xjc-utils
cxf-xjc-runtime

~~~

  • Which version should I use for cxf-xjc-runtime?
    Or, is there a way to generate toString() code that does not use cxf-xjc-runtime dependency?

Resolution

  • In the pom.xml, file, you will need the following dependencies,

    org.apache.cxf.xjc-utils
    cxf-xjc-runtime
    3.0.2


    commons-lang

The above configuration works.
