RE: xsd validation was RE: XPath/XSLT 2.0 concerns
Take that tacit understanding among a small and probably closed team and try to generalize it to an industry. What y'all are suggesting won't scale in the human dimension. No, no one has to validate using a schema, but it is far less dependent on humans being proximate to each other. This is a silly thread. This stuff wasn't invented yesterday. len -----Original Message----- From: Gerben Rampaart (Casnet Rotterdam) [mailto:Gerben@C...] >And a *lot* of people are writing apps that read in XML right now today; I wonder how many of them are including an XSD valudation step? -Tim Indeed, not many I would think. Truth is that many developers / teams choose for XML as the communication language between various components of their application which they all write themselves. And why would you use validation in such a case ? You know perfectly well which XML is being generated ... it's not going to change overnight. One side on the app generates and the other side receives (and vice-versa) ... no need for a DTD or XSD. Agreed ?
