Hello Everyone,

I have two requirements:
1. Generate XSD file from an existing XML file.
2. Convert an existing DTD into XSD file.

So, is there any tool / utility / API available in WTP to do this?
I installed WTP (WebTools Platform; All-in-one release 1.0,
wtp-all-in-one-sdk-1.0-win32.zip) and searched the Help which came along
with it, searched the internet but I could not find any such API / Tool in
WTP which could be of use for this purpose.

Please do let me know if any such tool / API is available or if there is a
way to achieve this.

Thanks for the help.

Best Regards,
Ashish

There's nothing in WTP to let you do this. For XML->XSD see bug 107499
(feel free to vote for this). AFAIK there's no bug open to request
DTD->XSD. I should point out that these functions are available in an IBM
'for sale' product (Rational Application Developer).

I thought there is no 1-1 conversion between DTD and XSD? Isn't DTD more
general and can express things that XSD can't express (but is more
difficult to write and not verifiable).

Thanks Craig. I have voted for the Bug 107499. There are certain
"commercially" available tools which provide both of these
functionalities, such as "XML Spy" and they do a fairly good job at
converting DTD to XSD or generating XSD from and XML.

I was looking for something similar in WTP.

Best Regards,
Ashish
