Custom schemas

A custom namespace must have at least one custom schema. The target namespace in the custom schema defines the custom namespace. You can use several custom schemas with the same target namespace for a custom namespace. Top-level element declarations from these custom schemas for a custom namespace can then be used as replacement elements.

Custom schemas are handled in the same way as the main schemas are handled in the file system. Custom schemas are copied from their original locations and stored together with the mapping metadata files.

When you save a mapping with custom schemas to the mapper database the custom schemas are also saved.

Similar to main schemas, the custom schemas follow the lifecycle of the mapping. When you import and export a mapping, the custom schemas are also imported and exported. You can add custom schemas to custom BOD mappings.
