Do you have a simple example showing how to convert an XML schema into an equivalent ASN.1 using the XSD-to-ASN.1 translator?

Yes, there is such an example. It is based on the "W3C XML Schema Part 0: Primer" Purchase Order schema. It shows how you can convert schema po.xsd, into equivalent ASN.1, po.asn.

  • Input XML schema (po.xsd)
  • Command line syntax to translate the schema: xsdasn1.exe po.xsd
  • Output ASN.1 modules (po.asn, po_xsd.asn)
