Creating and Saving Designs

In the Design window, you can open multiple design tabs. Each design tab contains a SchemaAgent design, in which you can graphically design and manage the relationships, that is IIRs (Includes, Imports, or Redefines), between an unlimited number of W3C XML schemas, and also display the relationships between XSLT stylesheets, Web Services Description (WSDL) files, MapForce Design (MFD) files or XML files and their associated schemas. In this way, you can organize schemas (and MFD or XML files) into collections of related files.

 

Saving designs

A SchemaAgent design can be saved as a SAD file for editing at a later time. This is useful if you wish to modify relationships in the SchemaAgent design at a later time. Note that a set of files (and, therefore, their relationships) can be contained in multiple SchemaAgent designs. Any IIR relationship created in a SchemaAgent design is immediately propagated to the respective files as soon as the relationship is created.
