XML/XSD and extraction of data

XML/XSD and extraction of data

XML/XSD and extraction of data

I don't work with XML much, and in the past its always been fairly small xml files so I have gotten away with accessing data by traversing nodes till I found what I needed.  Unfortunatly, the data and its xsd I am facing today is very large, and I don't really want to go the "manual" route again.

I have always assumed that an xsd file (schema) was like a database schema in that you could apply it to an xml file and have strongly typed and named access to its data.  Unfortunatly due to deadlines, time constraints and unlucky choices in google searches, I never have been able to figure out how to do this.

Can someone provide me with a link or a snippet that can point me in the right direction?
