.net - visual - Create a SQLite database based on an XSD Data Set
xsd to c# online (2)
Does anybody know if there is a way to create a SQLite database based on an XSD
DataSet? In the past I've just used a basic SQLite manager, but want to fuse things a bit more with my
.NET development if possible.
I suspect in the general case this is hard; XML Schema allows for some quite bizarre type constructions. I'm not sure how you would do substitution groups, or extensions to restrictions of types for example.
However it should be possible to knock something together quite quickly (especially mapping from the classes in System.Xml.Schema) that works for 90% of schemas (i.e. sequence and choice elements with a few simple data types).
I'm sure you could write a small app that takes an XSD file and parses it into a SQL script. I've never seen code out there to do it though, but that's not saying it doesn't exist.
