Altova SchemaAgent 2023

A Design window is where you can view and 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.


A SchemaAgent design can be saved as an .sad file for editing 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.
