Re: [xml-dev] generate common xml shema from multiple xml instances

   If you are looking to build such a utility yourself, you need to
consider few points, like mentioned below:

Let's say your instance document is following (i.e., having two
"person" elements):


You need to decide for example:

1) What value of occurrence indicator, you want to have? Do you need
the value "unbounded" or want it to be a specific number?

for e.g.,

<xs:element name="person" type="Person" maxOccurs="unbounded" />


<xs:element name="person" type="Person" maxOccurs="10" />

2) Should the complex type "Person" be a named type or an anonymous type?

Inferring the XSD structure in an automated way from multiple XML
files, could be inaccurate.

I believe, you need some amount of manual adjustment of the XSD, even
if it's generated by some tool.
