Package org.geotools.xml.handlers.xsi Description


This package contains information about xml schemas, and processes to create parse and interpret Schema. One of the more important function is the simplification of a Schema into the interface in the xsi package, as well as compressing some of the heirarchy.

These classes should be used by assessing the SchemaFactory.

Future Work / Caveat

Work can be completed on two fronts, improving the compression algorithms for the Schema compression. The second major work for this schema should be to encode the Schema parsing (this package) as a Schema Object, using the document parser to complete the same task through an xsi extension.

Although it was evident early on that these tasks were similar, the exact nature and method of bootstrapping the process was not evident. Converting these classes to a Schema definition similar to GML would simplify the code, making it easier to maintain.
