   RE: [xml-dev] Problem with noNameSpaceSchemaLocation

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Hmmm, oops.  I just went back to check the case for absolute file refs and
realized that I was using file://... when I should have been using
file:///...  (Hey, when you guys get up to 15 strokes I'm bailing out to
drive a truck! <g>)

Anyway, that's what I get for relying on examples from various tutorials
instead of putting in the time to decipher the original recommendations.

As far as I can tell such relative URIs are not legal.  According to
RFC 2396, any URI with a scheme part (eg file:) is absolute.  The
relative URI would just be "RelativePath.xsd", and would only work if
the base URI had the file: scheme.

In fact, in "file://RelativePath.xsd" RelativePath.xsd should be
interpreted as host name!

Of course, turning it into CurrPath/file://RelativePath.xsd is bogus.
