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

I loaded the schema in EDIFIX. It uses Xerces for validation. No errors were
reported. It doesn't validate instance documents but it does create them
from the schema. If someone has a compare tool, they can easily find any
differences. I didn't take the time to key in Dave's sample data to produce
a realistic example.

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 capability.

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

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.
