Compiling a schema

This guide describes how to (re)compile your schema and where to place it in the application structure.

Because Fonto Editor uses a compiled version of your schema any changes you make to your schema require you to recompile.

1

Create a schema bundle

This can be done by following our guide on creating a schema bundle.

If any new XSD files were added to your schema ensure that these are added correctly to your schema bundle.

2

Get the Fonto Development Tools

Install or update the Fonto Development Tools and its requirements, and make sure you have placed a valid Fonto developer license on your system.

3

Compile your schema files

  • Open a command prompt in your editor instance folder.

  • Run the fdt editor schema compile <pathToSchemaBundle> command.

The compiled schema files are placed in the appropriate schema packages. Or in a packages folder when the command is not run in an editor instance folder.
