Extension Point Schema Builder

The name says it all. This builder is responsible for compiling the extension point schema files. But they are  exsd (xml format) files. What would one compile them in to. HTML of course :)

So the name does not really says it all. Before we proceed, we need to see the Schema compiler preferences.

This page gives the the preference to generate the documentation for the extension point schema. When checked, a reference document is generated for each schema. The document (in HTML format) is generated in the folder name as provided in the preference page. As you can see, the default value is 'doc'. The extension point schema builder is responsible for creating this document. If the check-box is not checked, then this builder will not do anything.
