   Re: [xml-dev] Who can implement W3C XML Schema ?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

  Xerces-J is not too bad, but I have spent many hours
with the following example, trying to figure out, what's wrong:

<AAA xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"; 

schema (correct_0.xsd):
<xsd:schema xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"; 
      <xsd:element name="AAA">
         <xsd:restriction base="xsd:anyType"/>

The schema should specify an element, which is empty, am I right?
and your article somewhere on XML.com :-)

But both xsv and Xerces-J haven't say even "boooo!" and where happy :-(

(I am using Xerces 2.0.0, the xsv is some month old)

Or am I overlooking something?
