RE: Including multiple schemas - duplicate name errors

Title: RE: Including multiple schemas - duplicate name errors

Would this work? I'm not sure if "recursive" inclusion would not include D twice (because it comes in via both A AND B). However, the same modularization principle would work if you defined:

D has the common stuff
E has the rest of the stuff which A needs
F has the rest of the stuff which B needs
A includes D & E
B includes D & F
C includes D,E & F

You should package up all common definitions in a schema D. Include schema D
in A and B. When C includes A and B, you will not get your duplicate
definition error, because there is only a single source (schema D) for those
