Abstract: In this paper, we conceptually model an Entity Relationship (ER) diagram and Extended Entity Relationship (EER) diagram from XML Schema. This conceptual view of XML Schema is a necessary step in understanding XML data, and can easily be used to translate XML data to the relational model. Once in the relational model, XML data can avail of mature relational database technology.

Keywords: XML schema; database design; conceptual modelling; entity relationship model; extended entity relationship model; XML data; relational database.
