Bruce MendenhallSubject: Batch process to check well-formed xml
Author: Bruce Mendenhall
Date: 27 Feb 2008 07:29 PM
I am looking for a way to run Stylus Studio in a batch mode to verify whether my 7,000 xml files are well formed. Is there a way to do this?

Thanks, Bruce, Monterey CA

Hi Bruce,
Stylus ships a command line tool, StylusValidator.exe, to validate XML documents, but it does more than a simple well-formedness check. If you are interested in well-formedness checking, you can use the examples that ships with most XML parsers (e.g. the SAXCount sample from Xerces-C++)

Hope this helps,
Alberto

Thanks much Alberto. This works great. However, with 7,000 files, I really need a recursive call (i.e., allow a directory rather than a file to be named, and allow recursion.) Looks like the validator only allows one file at a time. Is this correct? If so, I can try setting up a huge batch file. Thanks again.

From the command line:

for /r %i in (*.xml) do StylusValidator.exe "%i"

That will recursively search all *.xml files and
execute the validator (or any other command) on
them.

My apology for my ignorance, but please let me know what language this is in.

Tony, I think this is a dos batch type of command. I haven't done any batch file programming for a long time. Could you send me an actual example of this line? Is only the one line needed? Thanks, Bruce

That's the whole thing, as is.

If Stylus Studio's "bin" directory is in your path,
then this will validate all of the XML files in the
current directory and any contained directories.

Tony, I haven't gotten very far with this. I have tried various changes but still getting syntax errors when trying to execute this line by itself in a batch file. Could you possibly send an actual example? I don't program in batch files anymore. I am doing everything in VB so don't know a lot of the other languages.

Thanks much in advance, Bruce

Hi Bruce,
the line should be executed in a DOS shell (i.e. cmd.exe); if you want to use it inside a batch file, you need to double the '%' symbols:

for /r %%i in (*.xml) do StylusValidator.exe "%%i"

Hope this helps,
Alberto
