Flatten Schema with xsd:import

Fri Sep 18, 2009 7:23 pm


Is there a way to convert a schema that imports multiple other schema files into a single schema?

The 'Flatten Schema' option under Refactor only seems to handle xsd:include and not xsd:import (as far as I can tell anyway :)).

I am working with an xforms rendering tool that can only handle single schema files (i.e. won't process the includes or imports) so being able to convert a complex schema with lots of imports (including nested imports) would be fantastic.

Thanks very much,

Hi Samual,

XML Schema cannot define components from different namespaces in the same file. When you use import in XML Schema that means you are referring a schema from a different namespace and those components cannot stay in the same file with the components from the including schema - that is why the flatten schema action deals only with includes.
