Re: Finding the ID attribute of an XPath from XMLSchem
<xs:complexType name="nameType"> <xs:sequence> <xs:element minOccurs="0" ref="desig"/> </xs:sequence> <xs:attribute ref="dest" use="required"/> <xs:attribute ref="id"/> <xs:attribute ref="garageid"/> <xs:attributeGroup ref="xlink:XLINKATT1"/> </xs:complexType> <xs:attribute name="id" type="xs:ID"/>
this means that in the XML, the nameType node can be identified by the id attribute as xs:attribute name=id is mapped to XS:ID.
Likewise there can be many nodes in the XML that has ID associated to it.
<xml> <root> <somenode> <nameType id="2" attrib2="34">text</nameType> <nameType id="3" attrib2="34">text</nameType> <nameType id="4" attrib2="34">text</nameType> </somenode> <anothernode attrib5="55"/> </root>
So I need the output as id for the xpath root/somenode/anothernode/nameType
Hope I have explained it better!
Well what I thought was this way as a solution 1. Parse the XMLSchema 2. Make a map of XPath as key and the id as attribute. 3. Once I get the xpath from xquery, check the map to find the id 4. But parsing XMLSchema and mapping is not that simple either
