Missing setter method when maxoccurs="unbound" is present

Hello All,

I was able to successfully generate classes from xsd. But, while using the generated classes for create a content tree and marshall it to xml, I faced problems. I am unable to find the setter method for the root element. Below is the xsd for which I faced problem. Please take a look at the maxOccurs="unbounded" line.



With the above xsd, XJC generated a class with InstallServiceType interface having getNewAccount() and inner interface NewAccount. But what it lacked is setNewAccount(NewAccount). Without this element, I cannot marshall a java object to xml.

But, when I removed the maxOccurs="unbounded", xjc created InstallServiceType with the setter method setNewAccount(..).

Is this the problem with JAXB or is it with my schema?
Any help or pointers is appreciated.

Thank you,

Sounds like you are using JAXB 1.0.

Missing setter method when maxoccurs="unbound"

Is there any fix for this? We are using jwsdp1.6

Sorry, Slution is there in the source file itself in the form of comments!!!

* This accessor method returns a reference to the live list,
* not a snapshot. Therefore any modification you make to the
* returned list will be present inside the JAXB object.
* This is why there is not a set method for the OrderEntryLineItems property.

* For example, to add a new item, do as follows:

     *    getOrderEntryLineItems().add(newItem);
