ASN.1->XSD Translator - Overview


Technical Description

The OSS® ASN.1 to XSD Translator enables XSD and ASN.1 based applications to interoperate using XML. This command line tool maps your ASN.1 modules into XSD schemas.


All XML documents conforming to the generated XSD Schema will also be valid XER encodings of the original ASN.1 specification making interoperability possible.

See a simple example of using the ASN.1->XSD Translator.

Note that only limited support for E-XER encoding instructions (support for ATTRIBUTE, NAME, NAMESPACE and GLOBAL-DEFAULTS MODIFIED-ENCODINGS instructions) is available in the ASN.1->XSD translator.
