Generate Global Element

Enterprise Architect, by default, generates XML Schema in the Garden of Eden style. For every global XSDcomplexType stereotyped Class, the system generates a global element.

Example

XSDGlobalDefault

 

 

 

You can change the above specified default behaviour by de-selecting the Generate global element for all global ComplexTypes checkbox on the Generate XML Schema dialog. Then, the generated XSD no longer contains the global element; that is, it no longer has the lines:

<xs:element name="ContactInfo" type="ContactInfo"/> and
<xs:element name="Person" type="Person"/>
