RE: Who can implement W3C XML Schema ?
Your email shows exactly what's wrong with how people use XML Schema today and the why such an obtuse recommendation (the structures part, the datatypes section is rather decent as is the non-normative primer) is a problem. If a schema fails to validate in your favorite parser, then try it one or two others and if results are inconsistent then bring it up in a newsgroup or on a mailing list instead of just giving up and assuming that there is some hidden flaw in the schema that can't be discovered. These are the errors I get with XmlValidatingReader in .NET [Validation error] Element 'AAA' has invalid child element 'http://www.zvon.org/ jiratj/:a'. An error occurred at empty.xml(3, 45). [Validation error] The 'http://www.zvon.org/jiratj/:a' element is not declared. An error occurred at empty.xml(3, 45). while MSXML says [Validation Error] Element Conetent is Invalid According to DTD/Schema -- THINGS TO DO IF I BECOME AN EVIL OVERLORD #27 I will never build only one of anything important. All important systems will have redundant control panels and power supplies. For the same reason I will always carry at least two fully loaded weapons at all times. > -----Original Message----- > From: Jiri Jirat [mailto:Jiri.Jirat@s...] > Sent: Wednesday, March 20, 2002 6:48 AM > To: Eric van der Vlist > Cc: xml-dev@l... > Subject: Re: Who can implement W3C XML Schema ? > > > Eee, > Xerces-J is not too bad, but I have spent many hours > with the following example, trying to figure out, what's wrong: > > > <AAA xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" > xmlns:jj="http://www.zvon.org/jiratj/" > xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="correct_0.xsd"><jj:a/></AAA> > > schema (correct_0.xsd): > <xsd:schema xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" > xmlns:jj="http://www.zvon.org/jiratj/" > xmlns:html="http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40"> > <xsd:element name="AAA"> > <xsd:complexType> > <xsd:complexContent> > <xsd:restriction base="xsd:anyType"/> > </xsd:complexContent> > </xsd:complexType> > </xsd:element> > </xsd:schema> > > The schema should specify an element, which is empty, am I right? > See: > http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-0/#emptyContent > and your article somewhere on XML.com :-) > > But both xsv and Xerces-J haven't say even "boooo!" and where > happy :-( > > (I am using Xerces 2.0.0, the xsv is some month old) > > Or am I overlooking something? > > Regards > Jirka > > > > > Eric van der Vlist wrote: > > Good points, Jonathan. > > > > Jonathan Robie wrote: > > > >> 1.
