Regenerating a record definition when schema changes

I want to design and maintain a record’s structure and constrants using a w3c schema instead of using the Developer IDE.

So, I’ve created the record using the schema. But when I change the schema, I want to apply the changes to the existing record instead of manually deleting and re-creating the record, if I can avoid it.

Is this doable?




AFIK changes will not be not be affected when you change the schemas.The work around is use the references of records in your logic and store the records in a folder.SO if you over write the records with new schema, the program will refer your new records.But if you have directly used the records you need to delete and recreate it.
