I agree - we need to have a schema language that is easier to implement for
smaller companies or projects.
In the meantime, for many projects based on Java or .Net, there are other
tools that may help, such as Xerces. And if you need introspection, the
description of the XML Infoset Browser for Java looks intriguing. Does
anyone have experience with this tool?
