xerces2_6_2 validating with dtd and schema. please help!
posted 10 years ago
Hi I am having trouble validating an xml document using xerces2_6_2
I have a DTD that containes only entity references, and a schema that is used to ensure the xml is valid.
I get this error.
Element type "my root tag" must be declared!
It seems to expect all validation grammer to be in the dtd. I have sucessfully validated with xml spy and oxygen,(oxygen uses xerces too).
This is a real pain I really would lie to take advantage of using schemas, I know I could just use entity references in this form and not have a dtd but this is really not acceptable.
I have tried out all the xerces specific properties and features but this has not worked either.
Perhaps I should implement a validator? Does anyone have any ideas?
It is sorta covered in the
