[jdom-interest] Parsing an XML Schema

Is there an XML Schema processor that makes this analysis ?

    DIV { MARGIN:0px;}   No, you need to do a lot more than parsing the schema. You  already hint at this when you talk about "starting from the root": you don't  mean the XML root here, you mean some kind of semantic root. (You're wrong to  imagine that a schema is structured as a tree. It's a graph, and quite a complex  one.) To do what you are attempting, you need to do much more than parse the  schema, you need to analyze the information in it. Since that analysis is  complex, and since there are off-the-shelf schema processors that do it for  you, I would suggest that you use them rather than trying to write your  own.

   I    just need to parse the schema (dtd or xml schema corresponding) as a tree    structure, it means starting from the root, and then the children (prefix    parcours).

      True,    the XML Schema never declares a root element for its instances (valid xml    files), but there is one for the schema itself (the <schema>    tag).
Seeing your answer, I can't hold myself to ask you this : Are you    trying to parse your XML Schema file (.xsd) ? or your XML files valid against    your schema (.xml or anything else) ?

          The problem is that a schema does not      define a "root" element , and that's the main point for me, because I need      to work on the file (xml schema or dtd) as a tree structure, it means the      parsing must start by the root element and then the chidren of the current      element (from left to right -> prefix). So how can I do that ?
