validate an element for unique value in multiple occuranes

I have this xml which allows multiple occurences of log file locations.
<log>log location 1</log>
<log>log location 2</log>
<log>log location 3</log>
<log>log location 4</log>
Now in my schema I want to check for max occurances 4 which I can do using 'maxOccur' attribute. But I also want to make sure that all 4 elements should have different values.
How can I do that ?
Thanks in advance.

Welcome to Javaranch.
[Sorry about the delayed reply, I had to dust-off my XSD book to answer this.]
The construct you are looking for is
Use something like -
<xsd:unique name="SomeUniqueValue"> <xsd:selector xpath="*/log"/> <xsd:field xpath="."/> </xsd:unique>
You need to place this in the context in which you want to impose the uniqueness constraint. More homework to do.......

Can we use multiple Controllers in a single web-application?
