Hi Roger,

I've been working on this topic for more than three years, so am also
interested in the comments of others.  See my site, with a dozen papers and two
recent newsletters on this topic: http://XMLmodeling.com

Also, in addition to generating XSD from UML, I'm am finding very good results
from reverse engineering UML models and class diagrams from data-oriented XML
schemas.  See the UML diagrams in Annex C of this week's Universal Business
Language (UBL) release, which were automatically reverse engineered using my
hyperModel tool:
    http://oasis-open.org/committees/ubl/lcsc/0p70/

Per the comments from Tony Coates in a followup message, it's a bit difficult
to use existing UML tools to design schemas similar to what can be
hand-crafted.  However, I am working on a hybrid tool that will make this
easier.  The UML metamodel is used for the underlying representation and
storage, but the user interface makes it easy to edit the model in terms of XSD
constructs.

Regards,
  Dave Carlson
