If you want to convert UML to XSD once , yes, go via Ecore, manually.
If you want to convert UML to XSD many times, reconsider, use of XSD is
unnecessary and arguably unhelpful for modeling purposes.
All the UML facilities should work programmatically; you just need to
get your initialization correct.
