   RE: [xml-dev] XSD validation

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Thanks a lot. I have another requirement. Is there any way, I validate xsd
files programatically?
I mean any standard/non-standard API available for XSD validation?

In fact, my requerement is like this. I have an application to which XSD
files are the input. These xsd files have to be validated and parsed like
anyother XML document. I am trying to construct objects out of the XSD file.

Thanks for the plug.  It's worth noting that handing a schema document to
XSV will check whether or not it conforms to the schema for schema
documents, but that's _all_ it will check.  If it fails that test, you know
you need to fix something.  However, it may pass that test, and still not
correspond to a conformant schema, because that requires more than just
valid syntax.

A tool which in my opinion does a pretty thorough job of checking schema
documents is IBM's SQC (Schema Quality Checker).  There's a pointer to that,
and lots of other free and not-so-free tools, on the W3C XML Schema home
page [1].
