Although a full treatment of XML Schema is beyond the scope of this tutorial, this section shows you the steps you take to validate an XML document using an XML Schema definition.
(To learn more about XML Schema, you can review the online tutorial, XML Schema Part 0: Primer.
Using the exact XML & XSD from this example worked and i realized what i was doing wrong.
There are two ways to do that: , which stands for "XML Schema instance." The second line specifies the schema to use for elements in the document that do not have a namespace prefix-that is, for the elements you typically define in any simple, uncomplicated XML document.
(You will see how to deal with multiple namespaces in the next section.) You can also specify the schema file in the application, which is the case for Here, too, there are mechanisms at your disposal that will let you specify multiple schemas. Namespaces let you combine elements that serve different purposes in the same document without having to worry about overlapping names.
The XML plugin is installed properly in the plugins subdir and the 3 DLLs are copied to the Notepad EXE subdirectory.
Other XML "validation" features work but there is no way to validate against an XSD. Basically it says that you have to install the XML Tools plugin, then open the XML to be validated in Notepad , and click on the menu option Plugins Validate now.
It is also possible to specify an absolute location, but beware that you must use URL syntax, not Path syntax.
The piece of XML to validate is specified in the constructor.XSD files are "XML Schemas" that describe the structure of a XML document.The validator checks for well formedness first, meaning that your XML file must be parsable using a DOM/SAX parser, and only then does it validate your XML against the XML Schema.It will open a dialog that request you to introduce the XSD file path.Once the XSD file is provided, you can click the OK button, and a new dialog will be displayed with the results of the validation.These are the same constants you define when using XML Schema for SAX parsing, and they are declared at the beginning of the Because JAXP-compliant parsers are not namespace-aware by default, it is necessary to set the property for schema validation to work.
