XPath expression generator tool/utility??

Hello XML Gurus,

Does anyone know if there is a tool or utility out in the XPath world that can generate basic XPath expressions for all the possible paths described by an XML Schema? Essentially the tool would output the possible paths (within reason) down the tree (from the root is necessary). The closest I could find was the XPath Explorer (Eclipse plugin/app) but it generates path expressions from an XML document and is good for experimenting with XPath expressions but doesn't specifically work with schemas.

Anyone know of such a tool or feature in a tool?

Thanks in advance,

I agree. Here's the link:
