Did you read Craig's post I was referring to?

the idea was to avoid working directly with WSDL and using either XSD
or something that makes XSD (RelaxNG or example XML documents) as the
source to generate the WSDL for CXF to work from.

I wasn't talking about configuration of CXF, purely of creating SOA
contracts (of which a WSDL is often an end product).

i wasn't gonna force any of this on you - stick to XSDs if you prefer
:). I know given the choice I'd always use RelaxNG Compact Syntax if I
was writing a schema by hand; but in now way would I want to force the
whole world to ditch XSDs
