Well I wrote an IDL to XML converter, but I made it do what I thought it should since I didn't have a standard to follow.

For example, if I had something like this:



I'd convert it to this:



Digging around after the fact I was able to find this: https://wiki.objectweb.org/celtix/attach?page=CORBABindingDevPlan%2Fmars-2005-03-02.pdf

Although it looks OK, when the schema is generated, it doesn't work out very well (could hand code it though I guess).

My question is, does anyone know if there is a "standard" way to convert IDL to XML?
