RDF validation is a new field where researchers among the Semantic Web are putting their effort. However, migration to new formats and standards comes at a price. In order to facilitate and alleviate this transformation, this paper proposes a set of mappings that can be used to convert between XML Schema and ShEx—one of the new RDF validation languages—. Moreover, this paper presents a prototype that supports a small subset of the mappings proposed in it and a example of a XML Schema converted to ShEx with this prototype. This work and the development of other formats mappings could drive to a new era of semantic-aware and interoperable data.
