My XSD-schema looks as follow:

[code]
...
      <!-- Person -->
      <xs:complexType name="Person">
            <xs:sequence>
                       ...
                  <xs:element name="titel" type="tns:Titel" minOccurs="0" />
                       ...
            </xs:sequence>
      </xs:complexType>
...
      <!-- Titel -->
      <xs:simpleType name="Titel">
            <xs:restriction base="xs:string">
                  <xs:enumeration value="" />
                  <xs:enumeration value="Dr." />
                  <xs:enumeration value="Dr.Dr." />
                  <xs:enumeration value="Prof." />
                  <xs:enumeration value="Prof.Dr." />
            </xs:restriction>
      </xs:simpleType>
[/code]

But as I complie the XSD-Schema to java.enum, it failed. I don't know what's wrong.

But if I take out the '.' as follow, it is ok. Why?

     <!-- Titel -->
      <xs:simpleType name="Titel">
            <xs:restriction base="xs:string">
                  <xs:enumeration value="" />
                  <xs:enumeration value="Dr" />
                  <xs:enumeration value="DrDr" />
                  <xs:enumeration value="Prof" />
                  <xs:enumeration value="ProfDr" />
            </xs:restriction>
      </xs:simpleType>

Which compiler are you using?
What is your target version of Java?  
Your original Version of code works fine using Apache XMLBeans. However, if your xsd compiler was actually trying to map enumerations to Java 5 Enums, then you can't have periods in the names. as that would break the Java 5 naming conventions for type/class names.

I use the Jaxb and the target is Java 5. Maybe this is the problem?

What are your JAXB Compile options? What is the failure message?  Yes, that could be the case.
