2010-03-27 Saturday - Gen'ing XML from XSD

I spent a little time today researching tool alternatives to Altova XMLSpy for generating sample XML from XSD definitions.

The Eclipse XML/XSD editor provides the ability to generate XML - but it appears to have some limitations - it only generates an example for the first element it finds in the file.

Here are few other resources:

oXygen XML Editor

WMHelp.com - XMLPad
