Subject: RE: [emergency] update for EDXL DE xsd and Sample xml

I loaded your XSD.  Xray liked it.

I loaded your sample message.  Xray said it was not valid according to
your XSD.  I have attached the screen shot.  Offending location was line
the end of line 90 or beginning of line 91 ( between the 2 lines
exerpted below):


I have a freeware validator, so it might be my validator, but then so do
a lot of other folks.

I have added to my Radiation Example and also done some addition work on
the schema.  I would appreciate everyone with an XML validation tool to
examine them both in detail.  I created them with my Microsoft Visual
Studio 2005 Beta 2 software.  I used it because the production Visual
Studio 2003 will not allow a <choice> in a <sequence> of elements.  When
I used the <group> element it validated but was obviously an artifact of
the older Microsoft software.  I am also no expert of XML schema and
would still like to provide flexibility in the EDXLDistribution schema
for include namespaces for validating <ContentObject> XML and wrapping
the contents of <namespacedXMLcontent> with encryption and signature

Please review this and let me know what your tools determine.

Subject: [emergency] EDXL DE xsd and Sample xml and latest draft


I'm a bit delayed on sending the full draft due to schema validation
issues.  I think they are resolved in the files sent.

Dave did a great job putting the schema together.  I still had issues
with the <group> element followed by a <choice> in three validation
tools.  By removing the <group> as a wrapper, it 'seems' to have
resolved the issue.  I am no expert on xml schema 'model groups',
'partitions' or the like. We're likely to get (hopefully constructive)
comments on the schema format during review.

In the Specification Draft, Section 3.2: Data Dictionary, Appendix A:
Examples and Appendix B: Schema still need replacing.  I'll do that
after a sleep break.

Best Regards,
