How to work with a XML schema with Ruby?


#1

I need to take a XML schema and do some arbitrary text generation
using it’s contents.

Any idea where I should start?


#2

Check out the XMLRPC::Client class on Rdoc:
http://www.ruby-doc.org/stdlib/libdoc/xmlrpc/rdoc/classes/XMLRPC/Client.html

That should set you in the right direction.

If I were doing this, my first choice would be XQuery and my second
would be XSLT. If you’d like, send me a small snippet of your XML
Schema, tell me what you’d like to generate from it, and I’ll send
you an example of how to do it.

You know after I posted this I thought to myself that an xml schema is
just plain xml like anything else. I could use xquery couldn’t ?!

Thanks for you post.
