Generate XSD from XML – XSD.EXE versus on-line tools

Posted by jpluimers on 2010/11/23

Quite a while ago, I wrote about the XSD.EXE tool to generate wrapper classes from an XSD file.

Recently, I had to create an XSD based on some XML.
Actually: a client was implementing a tool, that could export some of the data as XML.
That XML had to go into their database.
But the tool vendor told the client that the underlying XSD was ‘not supported’ (odd: why allow exporting XML and then not provide something supporting as the XSD?).

Anyway, the data was not that difficult, but having an XSD at hand made the import process a lot easier.
So lets see how to get a starting XSD from an of XML files (in practice, you would do this with a couple of XML files, then collect the best pieces into your final XSD). Read the rest of this entry »
