There is a Java API for Eclipse (cleverly) called XSD. You can get more 
info here: http://download.eclipse.org/technology/xsd/scripts/home.php

While it's true that many validating parsers produce an internal 
representation of a schema, the representation may not be what you want. 
XercesJ, for example, creates a "flattened" representation that shows 
the net result of a type derivation tree for each particle. This is 
great for validation but not so great if you want to see the actual 
topology of the schema.
