Altova SchemaAgent 2024

Setting Up SchemaAgent Client

Home Prev Top Next

In this tutorial, we will work with the LocalServer that is automatically installed with SchemaAgent Client. You must connect SchemaAgent Client to the LocalServer before you can use it to create relationships between XML schemas.


In order to work with SchemaAgent, you must configure at least one path to a folder. Paths you configure are stored on the SchemaAgent server (in this case, the LocalServer). Using SchemaAgent Client, you create relationships between existing schemas in these paths. You can also create new skeleton XML schemas, which can be completed later using XMLSpy.



In this section of the tutorial, you will learn how to connect to a server and define a search path. Specifically, you will learn how to do the following:


Start SchemaAgent Client and connect to the LocalServer

Configure a search path to the folder that contains the examples for this tutorial
