Any tools for reducing a schema? [message #583766] Fri, 05 March 2004 16:29

Dear All,

I am currently working on a big health sytem in the UK. We get these huge
schemas for a thing called "HL7".

The std has nearly everything as 0..* & other massive generalizations such
that it can be all things to all people. However as it is backended by
real objects & a real db I have to reduce the scope of the schema down to
some "specific schemas" e.g. only 5 lines of "address" & not 0 to infinity
of them.

i.e a document I create which is accordance with my mini-schemas will
validate against the bigger one but the bigger one can be used to create
documents that will not vaildate against my smaller one.

Does anyone know of any tools that can help to create more specific
schemas from massively generic ones?

I have done some Eclipse programming & if need be may create a schema
based on this xsd branch/project but I don't want to re-invent the wheel.

Any ideas for a tool that can be used to do this?

I'd like to be able to open up an existing schema & then have a new
"types" schema be created where instead of an "id" type which can be
anything, I can create a specific id type complete with type, length,
possibly a range of values, a pattern etc. so as to comply with what the
backend system will actually be expecting.
