Did you have a look at

  trang - convert between different schema languages for XML

   trang  [-I  rng|rnc|dtd|xml]  [-O rng|rnc|dtd|xsd] [-i input-param]
           [-o output-param] input-file ...  output-file

written by  James Clark ([log in to unmask]), in Java, but sucessfully build
by Debian people into an native executable using gjc, and installable as
debian package 'trang'.

It even can interfer schema's from a bunch of example files, which is
very useful if you got a lot of customer data and can not the the
structure in it ..
