Encouraged by your reply, I've now updated SketchPath (v2.0.0.2) so that the
XSD Databinding Patterns can be downloaded and imported into this tool in a
single step. This update also includes a fix for a bug related to the
sorting of the patterns data that is imported.

SketchPath now provides for downloading and processing a regularly updated
copy of the patterns.xml file that is cached on the SketchPath website. (The
XPath import-expressions used to process the imported data are downloaded at
the same time).

As well as pattern names, groups, expressions and comments, the
SketchPath import-expressions also now add a special administrative group as
a container for patterns version and namespace data.

Updated instructions on how to use SketchPath for Databinding Patterns
detection and a link to the downloads page are at:
http://pgfearo.googlepages.com/databindingpatternsanalysis so I would be
most grateful if you could link from your tools page to either this or the
SketchPath home page at: http://www.sketchpath.com

This is great stuff, and just the kind of tool we'd encourage people to
build using our work!

The materials published by the Working Group are available for you to use
under the terms of the W3C Document license:


and tools under the W3C Software license:


You should provide attribution to the W3C. Ensuring your tool uses the
latest patterns,
without hitting the W3C site hard, would be nice too.

We can add a link to your tool, and other tools using the specification,
from the Working Group page, is this the best thing to point at?


Sorry not to have replied sooner!
