Fu Bo,

First, remember that XML Schema must also be valid XML files. So
really, if you find an XML tool that does what you want, you are golden.
Are you looking for (open) source code you can build on a tool?

JEdit has an XML plugin that will put the XML into a tree.
(http://www.jedit.org).

What sort of tree are you looking for?

If you just want an element tree, almost all XML editors will do that.

We market a shareware product called DTDChart that displays a document
structure as a tree chart. You would have to convert the XSD into a DTD
first. Not sure if this is the kind of thing you are looking for.

More info at http://www.intsysr.com/dtdchart.htm

sorry let me clearify my question,

i'm looking for a java API that will convert a XML Schema (XSD) document
from a textual representation to a tree representation that's stored in a
tree structured object. for example if i have the following XSD:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsd:schema xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"
targetNamespace="http://www.books.org"
xmlns="http://www.books.org"
elementFormDefault="qualified">
<xsd:element name="bookstore">
<xsd:complexType>
<xsd:squence>
<xsd:element ref="novel"/>
<xsd:element ref="journal"/>
</xsd:squence>
</xsd:complexType>
</xsd:element>
<xsd:element name="novel">
<xsd:complexType>
<xsd:squence>
<xsd:element ref="exemplar"/>
</xsd:squence>
</xsd:complexType>
</xsd:element>
<xsd:element name="journal">
<xsd:complexType>
<xsd:squence>
<xsd:element ref="exemplar"/>
</xsd:squence>
</xsd:complexType>
</xsd:element>
<xsd:element name="exemplar">
<xsd:complexType>
<xsd:squence>
<xsd:element name="title" type="xsd:string"/>
<xsd:element name="author" type="xsd:string"/>
</xsd:squence>
</xsd:complexType>
</xsd:element>
</xsd:schema>

this will convert to a tree similar to the one pictured here:

of course there's no way to capture every detail of a XSD into a tree, but
that's not what i'm looking for.

alternatively, could you point to a some good Java XML parsing tutorials.
thanks,

Why don't you just parse it as XML using Xerces, for example? Then you
will have a standard DOM structure which is very tree-like.

See the Xerces site on http://xml.apache.org.
