How to create a minimal xsd flat file?

Post by Renuplex » Wed Feb 27, 2008 7:19 pm

Hey guys,

Here is the situation:

I have defined a relatively simple xsd which includes a big xsd and only uses a few types from the latter.
The big xsd file only contain industry standard types.

Now I am using my simple xsd in a wsdl file, which is then used to create Ruby classes.

Now the problem is that the wsdl-to-ruby script creates classes for all the types contained in all the included files resulting in a huge 'mess' of classes I don't need.

The solution I was thinking of was to create a flat file, which would only embedd the types I am actually using and not all the other ones.

Is there a way to do this? Anyone has other proposals?

Thanks,
Laurent

Hello,

If your WSDL to Ruby script creates classes from all the types found in the input XML Schema then I think you have to create an XSD file that includes only the types that you need. I am sorry, oXygen does not offer XSD refactoring actions yet for moving or copying an element between two XML Schema files.

Hi,

Thanks for your quick answer. Do you know of any other tool that would eventually do it?

My problem is that I dont want to go through all these types dependencies myself and especially not redo if we need to extend the schema later on.

Thanks,
Laurent
