Subject Re: How to switch XML validation on?
Date Tue, 06 Jan 2004 19:44:38 GMT
Hi all,

I just ran into the problem of validation this afternoon. I have about 
300 XML files within the same directory. every now and then some of the 
files are edited by hand. However all files should conform to the same 
schema. Therefore I was thinking about possibilities to automatically 
validate each file in the directory against a known xml-schema. My idea 
is something similar to the linkstatus-functionality of cocoon: the 
validation process is started manually (by clicking a link) and as a 
result I will get a report stating for each file if it's valid or not. 
If it is not valid I the violation will be printed out. Performance for 
this application is not a big issue, because the task will rarely be 
used and the the server has plenty of CPU-power and RAM. Could your 
validation be of any help to me?
