I have to deal with a server that emits the example XML as-is (inner
node converted to text), I can't change it. I guess what I wanted was a
way to express the relationship without modifying either schema, perhaps
by creating a third. Doesn't look feasible.

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;</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
