          This is beyond the scope of this forum, but you may want ot have a look at Altova's XMLSpy or Liquid's XML Studio.  I personally like XMLSpy but that's a personal choice.  Of course there are many others.

            For creating a schema AFTER creating a PDF form, a common procedure is as follows:

             

            1) in LiveCycle Designer ES, save the form as a static or dynamic PDF

            2) open the form in Acrobat

            3) export the form data as xml (Forms > Manage Data > Export Data)

            4) in XMLSpy open the xml and generate a schema

             

            Note

             

            1) do not fill the form in Acrobat before exporting the data (XMLSpy will use the data as the basis for creating schema restrictions)

            2) I personally do not like the way XMLSpy generates schema (it VERY verbose) so I ultimately edit the schema, but it is easier than starting from scratch
