Well, at the moment there isn't a hierarchical relationship?
 
I think you're saying you want to modify the definition of DataWrapperNode
so that instead of containing a string it contains a DataNode. That sounds
like a simple text edit to me.

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;</DataWrapperNode>

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
