Importing a business object from an XSD file
An XSD file can contain multiple tags each of which can be converted to a business object. You can select the tags to be imported as business objects.
1. You must have a JDK version 5.0 or higher installed on your machine for importing business object from an XSD.
2. In the System Environment Variables for PATH variable add the JDK bin directory. For example C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_26\bin.
This must be updated because, the XSD functionality uses the xjc utility bundled with a JDK version 5.0 or higher found in the bin directory of the JDK installation.
Note: Only JRE is bundled with Progress Developer Studio for OpenEdge.
