to paul : As he converted it to an XML Schema (hope the converter does a
good job, or maybe did he converted it manually), he can parse it with JDOM.

to enis : As for getting only elements and attributes, I suggest you read
any JDOM examples you can find as parsing a schema is exactly the same job
as parsing "normal" XML. Just filter the elements you need.
If you're aiming for good performance, you can check the XML Schema
specification, or the W3Schools reference in order not to dig schema
elements that cannot contain anything interesting.

I don't have time right now to write you an XML Schema parsing example, but
it would be similar to any other JDOM example.
