We are very pleased to announce the availability of org.eclipse.xsd, the
XML Schema Infoset Model for Java, at Eclipse:

  http://www.eclipse.org/xsd

org.eclipse.xsd is a Java reference library that implements the XML Schema
Infoset Model as described in the W3C XML Schema specifications.  We
believe that it will be useful for any code that examines, creates, or
modifies XML Schemas (standalone or as part of other  artifacts, such as
XForms or WSDL documents). The library provides an API for manipulating the
components of an XML Schema, as well as an API for manipulating the
DOM-accessible representation of XML Schema as a series of XML documents,
and for keeping these representations in agreement as schemas are modified.

The library includes services to serialize and deserialize XML Schema
documents, and to do some integrity checking of schemas. The project goal
is to support 100% of the functionality of XML schema  representation, in
precise and exacting detail, but not necessarily to provide
document-against-schema assessment or validation services, which are
normally provided by a validating parser, such as Apache's Xerces-J.

We look forward to developing an open-source community to enhance the
org.eclipse.xsd reference library in order that it may address the needs of
the widest possible range of clients.
