A public forum for discussing the design of software, from the user interface to the code architecture. Now closed.
I'm pulling my hair out trying to find a tool to convert an XML schema into a useful relational structure. Oracle's never works on anything real, Stylus Studio gave me a Java exception when I tried to do that, and XML Spy created absolutely useless DDL.
Going through the schema complex type by complex type seems nightmarish to me. It's a very hierarchical structure that doesn't translate easily into relations.
Tell me, who thought it was a good idea to bring back hierarchical data structures?
What exactly is it about this schema that is so hard to represent relationally, and why was it put there in the first place?

"What is hard is when the schemas create entities that are nested very deep."
Yes. The "Russian Doll" schemas within schemas are maddening in many ways.
