Convert XSD into SQL relational tables


Is there something available that could help me convert a XSD into SQL relational tables? The XSD is rather big (in my world anyway) and I could save time and boring typing if something pushed me ahead rather than starting from scratch.

The XSD is here if you want to have a look. It's a standardized/localized format to exchange MSDS.


Answers:


Altova's XML Spy has a feature that will generate SQL DDL Script from an XSD file. XML Spy will cost you some money though.

Interestingly enough, a developer used a really clever trick of using an XSLT translation to create the DDL script from an XSD file. They have outlined it in two parts here and here.

I might have to try this out myself for future use...
