Re: Documenting XML Dialects With Instance Documents
Doug, One way is to use namespace prefixes in the XML instance document - this helps identify in which schemas elements/attributes are declared/defined, and it is particularly useful when you are dealing with multiple schemas and need to trace the "origin" of elements/attributes. Format at top of XML instance document would be (this shows only one schema): <abc:ThisIsTheRootElement xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.TargetNamespaceURL.com SchemaFile.xsd" xmlns:abc="http://www.TargetNamespaceURL.com> Hope that helps, Joe Chiusano Booz | Allen | Hamilton Doug Ransom wrote: > > Does anyone know of useful tools or techniques to annotate an instance document WRT its Schemas (typically both an XML Schema and Schematron in our case)? I think people like to look at the instance document and see the relevant bits of the schemas than the other way around, perhaps in a frame beside the instance document. > > > > Doug Ransom > Interoperability Architect > Power Measurement > 2195 Keating X Road > Saanichton, BC, Canada V8M 2A5 > Tel: 1-(250) 652-7100 > E-Mail: <mailto:doug.ransom@p...> > Website: <http://www.pwrm.com/> > > ION(r) smart energy everywhere(tm) > > ----------------------------------------------------------------- > 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 list use the subscription > manager: <http://lists.xml.org/ob/adm.pl>
