Vic LeeSubject: Duplicated XML tag name in XML Publisher
Author: Vic Lee
Date: 29 Jul 2008 11:36 PM
Hi,

We are using XML documents like this:

<root>
<items>
<row><id>1</id><name>item1</name></row>
<row><id>2</id><name>item2</name></row>
</items>
<orders>
<row><orderno>10</orderno><date>2008-07-29</date></row>
<row><orderno>11</orderno><date>2008-07-29</date></row>
</orders>
</root>

As you can see, the "row" tag is just a dummy tag for multiple records, and obviously the "row" tag under "items" is different from the "row" tag under "orders". But if I add it as data source in XML Publisher, it combines all the sub-nodes under the two different "row"'s.

But if I manually create an XSD file it works:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xs:schema xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
<xs:element name="root">
<xs:complexType>
<xs:sequence>
<xs:element name="items">
<xs:complexType>
<xs:sequence>
<xs:element name="row" maxOccurs="unbounded">
<xs:complexType>
<xs:sequence>
<xs:element name="id" type="xs:string" />
<xs:element name="name" type="xs:string" />
</xs:sequence>
</xs:complexType>
</xs:element>
</xs:sequence>
</xs:complexType>
</xs:element>
<xs:element name="orders">
<xs:complexType>
<xs:sequence>
<xs:element name="row" maxOccurs="unbounded">
<xs:complexType>
<xs:sequence>
<xs:element name="orderno" type="xs:string" />
<xs:element name="date" type="xs:string" />
</xs:sequence>
</xs:complexType>
</xs:element>
</xs:sequence>
</xs:complexType>
</xs:element>
</xs:sequence>
</xs:complexType>
</xs:element>
</xs:schema>

XML and XSD DataSource

Hi Vic,
that is the expected behaviour; when an XML instance is analyzed, all tags with the same name contribute to generate the definition for a single element definition, as they could be all instances of that single declaration.
If your data needs separate definitions, you must provide the XSD that precisely defines its structure.

Hope this helps,
Alberto
