xsd.exe generating multiple enums for simple type of included schema file


I'm just discovering the power of xsd.exe, so maybe I'm doing
something wrong.
>From an external provider of a web service I received several xsd
schema files describing requests and responses. So there is an extra
xsd file for each response and each request as well as some base
schemas, i.e. defining a data type for a result element. Among others
this result element contains a simple enumeration type "ResultStat e"
which can either be "OK" or "FAILED".

If I use xsd.exe to generate .cs files from the xsd files definining
the complex elements for the requests and responses and then combine
these files in an assembly I get a build error:

The namespace 'SomeNS' already contains a definition for

I get this error multiple times as each of the response schemas
references the schema containing the definition of the Result element
which contains the simple datatype "ResultStat e".

I could edit all the generated .cs files and remove all but one of the
ResultState enum decl's. But I will receive every now and then an
update of the schema files as this system is still in development.

Can anybody enligthen me if I'm doing something wrong? Please note
that I have no control over the xsd schema files. I get these from the
provider of the web service. I can't generate a .cs file for the
schema defining the result element, as this schema contains no top
level element.

Thanks in advance for taking time,

After doing some more research in the NG's I found some references to:

- xsd.exe: seems to have it's limitations

- XSDObjectGen: tool from some guy's from microsoft. Not tested as It
requires old .NET frame work and I don't want to mess around on my dev
machine. Maybe I can test it on an older notebook...

- Dingo: tested; resolves the problem by generating only one object
for the base types of my schemas. But generates wrong code for numeric
enums. I need to do some more testing here. Also regarding
compatibility in serializing and deserializing the top level objects I
need for sending/receiving parameters to the web service.

Something I wonder is why there is more than one tool from MS. Instead
of bundling their know how and activities and develop one good tool
they seem to waste their time and effort to produce multiple tools
that have some drawbacks...

Found another limitation of Dingo:

It cannot handle simple types that are restrictions, i.e. no code is
generated for

<xsd:simpleTy pe name="CountryCo de">
<xsd:restrictio n base="xsd:strin g">
<xsd:length value="2"/>
</xsd:restriction >

Hi, I have a scenario where I have a master schema that defines a number of complex and simple types. I then have a number of other schemas (with different namespaces) where I would like to reuse some of these master complex and simple types. This I believe will assist me in transforming between the master schema and the other smaller schemas that contain a subset of the elements in the master schema. I understand that I can import an...

Hi My web service receives an object of type say MyObject. I want to serialize this object,and then validate the xml against the main xsd. When validation happens, it should also validate against the included schema. The main schema includes one more schema and the actual types are described in the included schema.

Dear all, I am having trouble generating a client proxy for a webservice whose methods return a "complex" type. The type is complex in that it is a class whose members are a mix of primitive types and of more elaborate classes implementing IXmlSerializable. The resulting WSDL file for the webservice has two separate schemas in its <types> sections, and the client proxy (generated with wsdl.exe) is missing the definitions of the...

I am new to XML Schema and am running into a bit of a snag. I have defined an XML-based scripting language for an updater program that I am working on. I would like to make a schema for this language since malformed XML documents break the updater. (I did not have time to add good error-handling code, so run-time errors can abound if the document is malformed.) A sample doc might look something like this: <manifest>
