We provide an XSLT stylesheet to detect patterns in XML Schemas and WSDL documents. We plan to make the pattern detection service available as an online service, and also allow patterns to be detected using an executable java jar available for download here.
The online service is not available yet, but watch this space.
You can detect schema patterns as follows
|java -jar ../lib/saxon8.jar -novw -o results.html http://soap.amazon.com/schemas2/AmazonWebServices.wsdl annotated_results.xsl|
|produces this page AmazonWebServices.wsdl patterns detected.|
We are also currently undertaking a survey of schemas in the wild, which we will publish here soon.
