F# and XSD.EXE

It appears I missed a cool feature in F# PowerPack – F# CodeCOM. Quoting from the CodePlex page:

F# CodeDOM Implementation
FSharp.Compiler.CodeDom.dll contains implementations of System.CodeDom.Compiler.CodeDomProvider for F#. This allows F# to be used with CodeDom consumers, and most importantly to author ASP.NET pages code-behind classes in F#. Not all ASP.NET features work with this CodeDom, and you don’t get strongly typed access to page elements, Some sample ASP.NET applications are in the test suite in the source tree.

Which, thanks to Luke over on the F# Visual Studio team, means I can do this:

xsd.exe fpml-asset-4-2.xsd /classes /l:”Microsoft.FSharp.Compiler.CodeDom.FSharpCodeProvider, FSharp.Compiler.CodeDom, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=a19089b1c74d0809″

Which now means I can stop hand crafting FpML types in my F# cashflow code 🙂
