   Re: [xml-dev] Composite Keys in schema

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]


You'll want to reference the "key" and "keyref" elements in W3C Schema
[1]. There are some examples in section 3.11, "Identity-constraint
Definitions" and section 3.11.2, "XML Representation of
Identity-constraint Definition Schema Components".

Kind Regards,
