The XMLSchema Package

Latest Release: 0.7-0 (20 January 2012)

This package provides facilities in R for reading XML schema documents and processing them to create definitions for R classes and functions for converting XML nodes to instances of those classes. It provides the framework for meta-computing with XML schema in R. This package is used within the SSOAP package to process the types node with a Web Service Description Language (WSDL) file.

The code from this was taken out of the SSOAP package so that it could be used on arbitrary XML schema and not just those contained within WSDL files.
