   RE: [xml-dev] xsd validation was RE: [xml-dev] XPath/XSLT 2.0 concerns

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Take that tacit understanding among a small and probably 
closed team and try to generalize it to an industry. 

What y'all are suggesting won't scale in the human 
dimension.  No, no one has to validate using a 
schema, but it is far less dependent on humans being 
proximate to each other.

This is a silly thread.  This stuff wasn't invented

Indeed, not many I would think. Truth is that many developers / teams choose
for XML as the communication language between various components of their
application which they all write themselves. And why would you use
validation in such a case ? You know perfectly well which XML is being
generated ... it's not going to change overnight. One side on the app
generates and the other side receives (and vice-versa) ... no need for a DTD
or XSD.

Agreed ?
