Well, neither schema is aware of the hierarchical relationship.

Unless there's an overlap between the schemas, can't you just combine
them using

 

<xs:schema>

  <xs:include schemaLocation="schemaA.xsd"/>

  <xs:include schemaLocation="schemaB.xsd"/>

</xs:schema>

 

Or have I missed the point?

	Hi all,

	I have to deal with some legacy XML that resembles the example
snippet below. For historical reasons they've split the thing in two.
The outer bit is in schema A and the inner bit is encoded as text and
represented by schema B. (schema A simply defines the DataWrapperNode as
a trivial element).

	
<DataWrapperNode>&lt;DataNode&gt;yadyada&lt;/DataNode&gt;</DataWrapperNo
de>

	I would like to run this thing through a code generator and what
I need as output is code representing the union of the two. Does this
problem have an elegant solution?

	Rich
