Creating xml instances may seem tedious to some.  This is why I wanted to
add the ability to include numerous xml instances as a representative.  It's
certainly on my wish list.

 

I like your ideas on the requirements of enums and min/maxOccurs.  I'll put
this on my wish list as well.

 > A full FAQ is available at http://www.xmlhelpline.com/tools (including a
section on how this relates to Schematron and other solutions). This is an
initial 1.0 release.  I would love to continue to improve it if people find
it useful.  

 

 

Other requirements for subsetting that I have often encountered include:

 

(a) reducing the value set of an enumeration

 

(b) changing minOccurs or maxOccurs values.

 

In general I quite like the idea of making this instance-driven, though I
can see that in some cases, creating instances that are sufficiently
representative could become rather tedious.
