   RE: [xml-dev] What am I overlooking...?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Thanks Priscilla!  I found a newer version of XSV and that fixed the
problem.  Interestingly, it's still reporting the same error message at the
end of the run, even though it is obviously now finding and using the schema
file.  Oh well, at least we're making progress ;-)

Hi John,

My guess is that the target namespace of your schema does not match the
namespace in your instance document.  They must match _exactly_.

XSV is dereferencing the namespace because it is looking for a schema
document with the correct target namespace.  If it can't find an appropriate
schema document via either the xsi:schemaLocation attribute or a command
line parameter, it dereferences the namespace as a last resort.  There is
nothing illegal about this - processors are not required to dereference the
namespace, but they are not forbidden from doing so either.

Also, it looks like you are using a fairly old version of XSV.  I would

Hope that helps,
