Yes, didn't I say that clearly enough?  Their documented intention is to
XML Schema (big S) sometime this year, but they appear to be behind

Note the difference between "XML schema" and "XML Schema". The former
includes DTDs and XML Schemas. I don't believe JAXB currently works with XML
Schemas, only DTDs.

Sun has JAXB (Java Architecture for XML Binding) that compiles an XML schema
java classes.  It's in early release form, and it only supports DTD schema
now, although
their docs say they intend to support W3C schema sometime soon.
JAXB is interesting in that you can control the way java classes are
generated by writing
a binding descriptor that overrides the compiler's assumptions, pay as you
go.  Don't know
if this product has a future, though.

Subject: XML to XSD

Does anyone know of a good (and free) program that would help one create an
XML Schema from an XML file.  I'm still kind of new to all these different
XML formats (DTD, XML, XSD, WSDL, and the list goes on), but I want to use
Castor to create classes for loading and saving XML and it wants to start
with an XSD.  Or as a another possibility an XML to Java maker / compiler.
Does Xerces have one (like Xalan has the XSLT compiler)??
