Castor-like Package for Ruby

Hello all,

I come from a Java background, where lately I’ve been using Castor to
generate Java objects from an XML schema and marshal/unmarshal XML
documents using the generated Java objects.

Is there a Ruby package that will allow me to do the same thing? I’ve
figured out how to use WSDL::XMLSchema::XSD2Ruby to create Ruby objects
from an XML schema, but it does not create the marshal/unmarshal methods
that allow me to load the objects with data from XML files.

Any suggestions?

Thanks! – BTR

soap4r has a tool wsdl2ruby that takes a wsdl definition and creates
classes that un/marshall to/from the XML data that comes
accross the wire when you make SOAP calls. Which would be very similar
to what you need. Thus you might want to have a look at wsdl2ruby.

I hope I’ve interpreted your question correctly…

Thanks for the response Tom. I’ll take a look at the WSDL stuff. As a

module…

soap4r-1.5.8 includes xsd2ruby.rb command line script for that purpose.
The ruby/1.8.x contains soap4r-1.5.5.

The release announce posted on this list;
http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.ruby/msg/28ba977ece309ebd
contains an usage example of XML <-> Ruby mapping of Yahoo Local Search.
