Using Microsoft Visual Studio / SQL Server Data Tools..

Open SSIS and create a new project.
Add a date flow task in the control flow, then double-click it to get to the Data Flow.
Add an XML Source Editor.
   Populate the XML Location to point to your XML file.
   Hit the 'Generate XSD...' file, and wham jam it creates an XSD file for you.

In case you don't have visual studio

A commonly used java command line tool is Trang

Trang is integrated in a number of XML IDE

I use myself Oxygen or Stylus Studio
www.oxygenxml.com
www.stylusstudio.com
They both have very configurable options for creating XSD from 1 or multiple XML files
They are pay-ware, but have evaluation versions
