Re: XSD Schema : Standard APIs ?


There is some work going on in DOM Level 3 to provide a standard API to
schema information ( including type info ) which includes support for the
XML Schema stuff.

I've been thinking about event based interfaces for schema for a while now,
I'll probably publish something in the next couple of months.

So I guess in the medium term there will be some APIs, how popular they wil
become, who knows...

Subject: XSD Schema : Standard APIs ?


I was chatting to a friend last night about how XSD is used within
SOAP & WSDL, in particular its use as a type system rather than a
validation language. I was wondering if there are any plans to define
a standard API to query/use the type system that a particular XSD
document describes, or will it become purely an implementation issue
within the different XSD tools ?.
On a related note, is anyone aware of (or plans for) a general purpose
XSD toolkit, all the work i've seen so far for XSD seems to
concentrate on the validation side.
