  • Thread-topic: [xml-dev] Question on XSD validator

There is one more question I have on the same topic.

Is there any software OR tool OR library [set of APIs] available in Unix by means of which I can create an XML document from a given XSD document. The data for the XML document will come from a datafile.
So I just want to know whether there exist any such library [like Xerces/libxml2]which can be used to write a program that will take an XSD document as input and will create corresponding XML file. [the reverse engineering].

If that is possible then the generated XML document will always conform to the given XSD document and so no question of failure in XSD validation at client site.

Please correct me.
Thanks in advance for your input.

Has anyone systematically surveyed the conformance of various XSD 
validator implementations? Is there a comparison table somewhere on the 

I have often seen--as in this thread--various qualifications suggesting 
that a particular implementation is not 100% conformant or is partial, 
etc. Xerces claims fullness but I've been told it doesn't implement the 
latest errata.
