Hi, I am working on a client case where we would like to import data provided by a SAP Odata service back into a Mendix application. As far as I can see i receive my response in a XML string which I need to import using an Import mapping. In order to create an import mapping i require and XML Schema (XSD) - which is not provided by SAP's Odata service. Do I manually need to create an XSD or are there more efficient ways? Thanks, Han Pieter

Hans why don't you just request json in your ODATA call? That way you can easily build a mapping using the Json mapper in mendix using the response from the service. I've recently done the same using ODATA myself.
You can use an online tool to generate your XSD based on the XML. I have good experiences with XMLSpy to customize the XSD so that it accepts finally the XML.
