XML Schema Documentation
The oXygen XML Schema documentation
tool allows you to easily generate full documentation for the XML Schema content models,
including comprehensive diagrams, annotations, and cross references.
Multiple Output Formats
It is possible to generate XML Schema documentation in various
formats including HTML, PDF, and DocBook.
You can use the following links to see some samples of documentation generated by
oXygen for a simple XML Schema:
The documentation for the XSLT 2.0 XML Schema can be found here
For large XML Schemas, a
generate documentation option is available for the HTML format that
will output documentation in multiple files. The documentation includes diagrams that
represent the models for the XML elements, attributes, and types.
Support for Imported and Included XML Schemas
The generated documentation includes all the components defined
in the imported or included schemas.
By supporting DocBook output, oXygen allows you to use the generated
documentation within customized documentation workflows. A custom format can also be
generated by setting an XSLT stylesheet that receives as input an XML file with a
known structure defined by a schema that is included in oXygen.
Multi-Language Support for Annotations in XML Schema Documentation
You can choose a specific language to be used in documentation
generated for schemas containing annotations in multiple languages. If no language is
selected, all the annotations will be generated having the xml:lang
attribute set, allowing you to perform additional filtering using other tools.
Best Look and Performance
The documentation output is carefully designed with a balanced
selection of colors and a neatly organized layout.
oXygen XML Editor delivers the best performance available
for generating XML schema documentation. Even for the largest XML schemas (thousands
of components), oXygen generates complete documentation within seconds.
Also Available as Command Line Tool
If you need to integrate the generation of XML Schema documentation into a build
process, you can invoke this tool directly from the command line.
