« Schema-First/Contract-First/Top-Down Sty... | Main | I could if I wanted to..... »

As you probably noted in my last blog entry, if I am on the .NET platform, I tend to use XSDObjectGen a lot.  XSDObjectGen is a excellent tool on that .NET platform that will improve your chances of Interop with other platforms and technologies. It has now been updated to 1.4.2. Check it out.

While I was visiting Microsoft last week, I had a chance to meet Dan Rogers, who was one of two guys who actually built that particular tool. Awesome guy, with whom I spent some time talking about web services, schema design and versioning and more and who provided me with a wealth of information on those topics (Thanks Dan!). 

I did not realize it until much later into the conversation that Dan also was basically one of the inventors of UDDI and was one of the folks who spent a lot of time at OASIS hammering out the 1.0 and 2.0 specs.  He also seemed to have a lot of familiarity with the BizTalk side of the house. From what he mentioned, XSDObjectGen was something that was originally developed for some work he was doing with BizTalk, but turned out to be useful in its own right.

UPDATE:  As noted by Dan in the comments, XSDObjectGen has been updated to v1.4.2.1. This is a bug-fix release. Same link as given above.

Hi Anil,

FYI, we just posted update after a few people reported some bugs with the wizard and code not always being generated in the 1.4.2 release. Thought you might want to know.
