      Description

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
      Please provide API for W3C XML Schema. WXS is not only schema language for XML but is currently most important and Java platform can have more APIs for different schema languages in the future. This API should be designed to provide read access to schemas with possibility to have also write access.

        Today there are some possibilities how to access schemas but non of them is standard part of Java platform which causes version conflicts:
      W3C XML Schema API - http://www.w3.org/Submission/xmlschema-api/ (implemented in xerces)
      Eclipse XML Schema Infoset Model - http://www.eclipse.org/xsd/
      Sun XML Schema Object Model (XSOM) - https://xsom.dev.java.net/


      JUSTIFICATION :
        Today there are many places where WXS is involved including JAXB and WS but (maybe more important) also many proprietary applications. It would be very useful to have schema API in Java platform. This would eliminate libraries versions conflicts and be more convenient.
