Hi,

I'm new to xml.  May I know whether there exist any xml generator in the market?  No matter it need to pay or it is free of charge.

That is, if I provide the generator all those schema for the xml together with the data that need to be contained in the xml, the generator will generate the appropriate xml out.   Do such xml generator exist in the market?

Kindly please help.

Cheers
Stanley

XML IDE usually have a "generate XML" based on a schema or DTD, with a whole bunch of options for choices and multiple occurences, and adherence to datatypes

Oxygen (www.oxygenxml.com) has all you need for this
I prefer it over XML Spy (Altova) that can do that too

As far as I remember Notepad++ XML plugin has some possibilities to do the same (but they lack namespace support, on the other hand that is free)

Some not so powerfull but free alternatives
online: http://xsd2xml.com/

Hope this is enough to get you started
