Segun AlayandeSubject: Re-usable XML Schema
Author: Segun Alayande
Date: 21 Apr 2007 05:15 PM
I created a UML model in a CASE tool (Sparxsystem Enterprise Architect) which transformed the model to the w3c XML Schema:

<xs:schema xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
<xs:element name="FullName" type="FullName"/>
<xs:complexType name="FullName">
<xs:element name="FirstName" type="xs:string" minOccurs="0"/>
<xs:element name="Surname" type="xs:string" minOccurs="0"/>

But I was advised that this Schema is not re-usable and that I need to declare all the elements globally.

Can I convert this XSD to the right one in Stylus Studio and how do I achieve this.

Thank you in anticipation

Hi Segun,

The schema portion you have posted seems perfecly re-usable.

If you need to re-use the sub-element "FirstName" and "Surname" in other definitions the you will need to make them global.

The Stylus Stuio Schema Editor can help you to re-factor a local defintion into a global definition.


Hope this helps
