Re: XML Schema: "Best used with the ______ tool"

Hm, that would require that data binding tools support conversion in both directions, schema to programming language and programming language to schema. Imagine also a group working on a schema for an XML vocabulary. Some use C++, some Java, and some C#. I can only imagine what a nightmare it would be if each modelled the vocabulary in their programming language; each would have to merge changes in the schema (produced by other members) to the model in their programming language. I think it is quite clear that the specification of the vocabulary (schema) is primary and mappings to programming languages are secondary. Unfortunately, people who worked on the W3C XML Schema spec didn't do a good job of making sure such mappings are possible or natural for all features present in the schema language.
