Generate Schema

Having defined a schema profile, you can quickly and easily generate schema from it within the Schema Composer. You can either generate a single schema that complies with one standard, or several schema at once, each of which complies with a different standard. If the standard you adopt is NIEM, you generate a Model Subset instead, which you can convert to a schema using the Generate NIEM Schema facility in the Extensions menu.
