I have defined a set of schemas that model the data model of our project.
We use the schemas for validating purpose, but we need also to programmatically read the schema and to understand the structure of a document compliant with the schema.
For example, given a schema model that contains a LODGING_SERVICE element that contains three elements: NAME, LOCATION and COST,
I need an API that returns this structure, along with the datatypes of the NAME, the LOCATION and the COST fields (i.e. like a data dictionary of an RDBMS ).
Obviously I could use an XML parser, but I would implement a very limitated component.
Is there any library that read a schema and provide an object model of the schema itself ?
Thanks in advance,
