Multiple XML Files One Schema

I have an application that uses around 10 XML files for Configuration. Idea is to have a common XMLSchema for all Config Files (it can grow more than 10) and to have a UI for editing. Is it possible to parse the XMLSchema using XSL and produce HTML for editing in JSP and then save back the changes to XML Files? Or is there any other better approach?

Thanks

Yes its possible to have once schema for 10 different xML, but having a single schema for 10 entirely different XML is not a good idea.
You can create UI for editing XML either using servlet or JSP, upon submitting the form, the servelt/jsp will generate the XML files.
As you are one who is going to create the UI, i would say you can skip the validation of XML against the XSD, which means your UI should be very strict to your XSD.
