Karen FoxSubject: Validation against schemas wants elements un-qualified
Author: Karen Fox
Date: 18 Dec 2008 01:00 PM
I'm trying to validate an instance document against a schema. I have no control over the schema contents. Stylus Studio keeps wanting me to make all the element un-qualified:

Validating jbfsaMessage.xml...
file:///c:/Documents and Settings/kfox/My Documents/UCORE/jbfsaMessage.xml:5,11: Element 'source' should be un-qualified
file:///c:/Documents and Settings/kfox/My Documents/UCORE/jbfsaMessage.xml:6,20: Element 'classification' should be un-qualified
file:///c:/Documents and Settings/kfox/My Documents/UCORE/jbfsaMessage.xml:7,11: Element 'track' should be un-qualified
file:///c:/Documents and Settings/kfox/My Documents/UCORE/jbfsaMessage.xml:8,19: Element 'deviceData' should be un-qualified
file:///c:/Documents and Settings/kfox/My Documents/UCORE/jbfsaMessage.xml:9,25: Element 'transponderID' should be un-qualified

What am I doing wrong that this won't validate? I'm attaching both the schema and instance document. As you can see, the instance document follows the schema. Thank you for any assistance.

Karen


UnknownjbfsaMessage.xml
instance message

UnknownJBFSAMessage.xsd
schema for message

Hi Karen,
the XML instance is not correct: it would be correct if the schema had the elementFormDefault="qualified" attribute in the xsd:schema element.
Missing that declaration, all non-global element declarations that don't have a namespace prefix in their name are placed in the empty namespace, not in the target namespace of the schema.
So, a correct instance for this schema would be

<jbfsa:jbfsaMessage xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
xsi:schemaLocation="http://metadata.dod.mil/mdr/ns/jbfsa/2.3 JBFSAMessage.xsd"
xmlns:jbfsa="http://metadata.dod.mil/mdr/ns/jbfsa/2.3">
<source>Blackberry GPS SPAWAR Dev - 01</source>
....
</jbfsa:jbfsaMessage>

Thanks so much, Alberto. That's the piece I was missing.

Well, drat, now it tells me:

Unknown element 'jbfsaMessage'

I know that's the top level element in the schema and the capitalization is correct.
