Re: Latest version of MSV
I did not see a previous thread to this mail or a link to the MSV site, so if you want to download the latest version, here it is: http://www.sun.com/software/xml/developers/multischema/ Personally, I really like the inovation of being able to validate schemas in three languages from a single point.

Here are the important changes: * enhanced the support for RELAX NG - removed support for key/keyref. - implemented <except> clause * enhanced the support for DTD - fixed some critical bugs * enhanced the support for XML Schema. - forward reference of simple types are supported - @block is properly implemented - internal grammar representation now exposes many schema component properties. - identity constraints are implemented properly - this includes a significant change in the way MSV keeps XML Schema grammar internally. * added support for Sun Entity and URI Resolver to the command-line tool (http://www.sun.com/software/xml/developers/resolver/.) This makes it possible to provide a catalog via a command line option to resolve external entities. * added com.sun.msv.verifier.psvi package to report the type-information to application. Supported for all schema languages. * datatype implementation now supports the conversion between strings and Java-friendly objects. * changed the packaging. Now MSV consists of many small jars. * Support for JARV (the org.iso_relax.verifier package, http://iso-relax.sourceforge.net/apiDoc) is extended. JARV is now the primary interface to use MSV. * Modified com.sun.msv.verifier.Acceptor to better serve special applications (like XML editors that needs error highlighting.) * added some examples * added the source code, although it's not the open source. * Other miscellaneous bug fixes, usability enhancements. regards, -- Kohsuke KAWAGUCHI +1 650 786 0721 Sun Microsystems kohsuke.kawaguchi@s... ----------------------------------------------------------------- The xml-dev list is sponsored by XML.org <http://www.xml.org>, an initiative of OASIS <http://www.oasis-open.org> The list archives are at http://lists.xml.org/archives/xml-dev/ To subscribe or unsubscribe from this elist use the subscription manager: <http://lists.xml.org/ob/adm.pl>
