Hi all,

I am developing an application that allows the user to configure the system using a XML config file. This config file is validated with a DTD which is currently visible to the client.

The problem I have found is that the clients are editing the DTD to skip the validation.

So I have come up with the idea of moving the DTD to within the jar file that the application is distributed in.

Searching the web I have come across the article (you may have to press refresh in order to see the article???)

Can anyone advice me if this is an appropriate approach or is there a better one out there.



I agree. Here's the link:
