XML Newbie Needs Help Finding Tools

Hello! After many years of avoiding the topic, I am now being dragged, kicking and screaming, into the world of XML. I purchased the O'Reilly book "Java and XML, Third Edition" in an attempt to educate myself. It introduces a tool called "relaxer" for doing such things as creating a DTD or schema definition from an existing XML document. But the tool seems to be no longer available at the provided URL: Their entire web site is gone! The book was published in late 2006 so its not that old. What has become of "relaxer"?

Is there another tool I should use? I have a Linux pc. Thanks in advance for any info/advice.

Cheers, The Dunce Baron.

Warren - This project has an instance to schema generator.

There are probably others freely available, as well as commercial implementations.

I agree. Here's the link:
