Altova SchemaAgent™ 2006 is the compelling new paradigm for modeling and managing advanced schemas and their components in enterprise workgroups. Visualize XML Schema relationships and construct complex schemas from distributed schema elements via its graphical design view. Now in addition to XML Schema files, you can also see schemas used as sources or targets in Altova MapForce® data mappings.
One of the most compelling aspects of the XML Schema standard is the ability to construct complex schemas of multiple, smaller schemas using xs:import, xs:include, and xs:redefine statements.
This modular approach to schema design promotes the development of schema components upon which organizations can standardize to increase consistency and reduce redundant development efforts.
Despite these advantages, the process of aggregating schemas can become extremely complex and error-prone when the number of schemas involved is large and when multiple users work with the schemas in a team environment. Management of an organization¡¯s overall information architecture depends on the ability to easily view the XML Schemas in use and their relationships and connections to other schemas.
Altova has created the unique SchemaAgent™ 2006 to help developers and information architects visualize, combine, and control their schemas in an intuitive, standards-conformant manner.
