A Compact Syntax for XML Schema

Erik Wilde


XML Schema is a very powerful and also a rather complex schema language. One of the problems when working with XML Schema is the fact that XML Schema uses an XML syntax, which makes XML Schemas verbose and hard to read. In this article, we describe a compact text-based syntax for XML Schema, called XML Schema Compact Syntax (XSCS), which re-uses well known syntactic constructs from DTDs; and we present a Java-based implementation for converting the compact syntax to the XML syntax and vice versa.
