Re: Newbie - Schemas - Problem with minOccurs? or xmlns?
Joel, There are a couple of problems I noticed in here: > <?xml version="1.0"?> > <schema xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" > xmlns:xsi="http://mymachine/schema.xsd" > targetNamespace="http://mymachine/schema.xsd" > elementFormDefault="qualified" > attributeFormDefault="unqualified"> Becuase you are using the schema namespace as the default, you must prefix you targetNamespace references: add xmlns:my="http://mymachine/schema.xsd" in here. > <complexType name="record"> > <sequence> > <element name="cname" type="xsd:string"/> Again, the schema namespace is the default-- so these should be "string" with no prefix. > <element name="email" type="xsd:string"/> > </sequence> > </complexType> > <element name="addressBook"> > <complexType> > <sequence> > <element name="owner" type="record"/> Follwing the same problem, references to your targetNamespace types must be prefixed so change this to "my:record" > <element name="person" type="record" > minOccurs="8" maxOccurs="unbounded"/> > </sequence> > </complexType> > </element> > </schema> Oftentimes (especially when starting out) it is easier to prefix the schema namespace with "xs:" or "xsd:". There are some examples in the schema primer that do this. This is really personal preference though... Based on the errors in the schema I am guessing it was not checked-- this may be because it couldn't recognize the type "record" and just pursued lax validation-- but if so, that seems like a bug to me... I would check your validation code. Good Luck, Jeff Rafter Defined Systems http://www.defined.net XML Development and Developer Web Hosting
