Re: Conditional xml Schema

conditional values in xml schema
Why don't you define a Mango element and an Apple element, each with

instantiate either type of fruit, Apple or Mango, and get the proper
It looks like you are trying to use the attribute to name the element
type, which would be unnecessary, and it would surprise me if xsd --
or any schema definition language -- would attribute class semantics
to the arrtibutes you create arbitrarily. You are trying to place your
metadata in the data domain.
