RE: Including multiple schemas - duplicate name errors
So how far do you take that concept? Agree that it's a very viable option, for the immediate problem that I'm faced with. However, let's say there are other schema's that will be developed in the future that will use this same 'vocabulary' but instead of using the elements in schema D, I only need a subset of them plus a couple others for a new schema. Would need to break the subset of common elements down more. You could take it to the point where every element is in it's own schema. The resulting messages are just comprised of of the appropriate included single element schemas so that this issue wouldn't rear its head again as schemas are embedded in other schemas or re-packaged. Sure it's overkill, but if you plan to extend the message set, it's possible to run into this situation again and again. Thanks for your input! Cheryl -----Original Message----- From: davec@p...

Include schema D in A and B. When C includes A and B, you will not get your duplicate definition error, because there is only a single source (schema D) for those definitions. Dave
