Support for JSON schema : natively and type tree Importer

Currently the ITX product is designed to be used with JSON data, and not the JSON schema (Native and Importer).

Example : "age": { "$ref": "secondary.json#/properties/age"}

With more systems adapting to JSON based message transformation and use swagger definitions to define data model, the use ofJSON schemas is becoming quite common.

Currently the type tree importer or the Native schema works only with JSON data and there is lot of work involved to create a JSON out of the JSON schems file.

The ask is to support the automatic import of the JSON schema from data & through importer natively by ITX.

What is your industry? Other
How will this idea be used?

This idea would significantly decrease the time spent on creating a single JSON file out of JSON schema and also standardizes the process of using the ITX Native schema.

Also the chance of a manual error while creating a JSON is high. Future schema changes would also mean lot of rework. Having ITX to manage it automatically would help a lot.
