XML Schema Resources

  • XML Schema Repository: A library of industry-specific XML schema vocabularies available to help you in working with your XML content and data.
  • XML Schema Development Forum: A public, un-moderated email list about XML Schema-releated development issues including processor implementations and other hot topics.

W3C XML Schema Standards & Specifications

  • XML Schema Part 0 Primer Second Edition: XML Schema Part 0: Primer is a non-normative document intended to provide an easily readable description of the XML Schema facilities, and is oriented towards quickly understanding how to create schemas using the XML Schema language.
  • XML Schema Part 1 Structures: Describes facilities for describing the structure and constraining the contents of XML 1.0 documents, including those which exploit the XML Namespace facility. The schema language, which is itself represented in XML 1.0 and uses namespaces, substantially reconstructs and considerably extends the capabilities found in XML 1.0 document type definitions (DTDs).
  • XML Schema Part 2 Datatypes: Defines facilities for defining datatypes to be used in XML Schemas as well as other XML specifications. The datatype language, which is itself represented in XML 1.0, provides a superset of the capabilities found in XML 1.0 document type definitions (DTDs) for specifying datatypes on elements and attributes.

What is XML Schema?

An XML schema is a description of a type of XML document, typically expressed in terms of constraints on the structure and content of documents of that type, above and beyond the basic syntax constraints imposed by XML itself. An XML schema provides a view of the document type at a relatively high level of abstraction.
