Title: RE: [xml-dev] Including Schema inside the XML


You can include the location of the schema and its associated targetNamespace at the top of the instance document as follows:

        <?xml version="1.0"?>
        <Invoice xmlns:xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"

where xsi:schemaLocation indicates the targetNamespace of the schema whose name is given in the second parameter.  This indicates that the schema named InvoiceV1.xsd (assumed here to be in the same directory as the instance document, which may not always be the case) has a targetNamespace of "http://www.acme.org/invoices". 

If the schema does not have a targetNamespace, the declaration would look as follows:

        <?xml version="1.0"?>
        <Invoice xmlns:xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"

For more information on targetNamespace (and namespaces in general), you can reference chapter 3 of the W3C Schema Primer: http://www.w3.org/TR/2000/CR-xmlschema-0-20001024/

Hope that helps,

Subject: [xml-dev] Including Schema inside the XML

   I want to know how to include the schema inside the .XML file.  We could do this with DTDs and I now need to work with schemas.  Thanks for the help!
