The Schema Editor

Help menu

The BlueIntegrator Schema Editor is accessed from the Explorer in any of the following ways:

  • Right clicking on Schemas (blue circle) and selecting New Schema
  • Clicking Schemas then clicking New (red circle)
  • Double clicking on an existing schema (yellow circle)
  • Selecting an existing schema then clicking Edit (green circle)

The BlueIntegrator Schema Editor Window

The Schema Editor is laid out in three sections: the left section shows a hierarchical tree view of the schema as it is being created; the middle section shows the system-generated XSD (the XSD can be manually edited, in which case the tree view will update automatically); the right section is the Properties form for modifying the properties of an XML element selected in the tree-view.

The Schema Editor allows complicated schemas to be defined from scratch; see Creating a Schema or A Simple Schema Example for more details. Schemas can also be generated and imported from various formats; this functionality is accessed via the Tools menu. The menus of the window are detailed below.
