Schema question...

Hi all,

Here is the question:

I have a schema like this:

<request>
<first_name/>
<last_name/>
<ssn/>
</request>

In the above request, is it possible to make ssn or the combination of first_name and last_name required elements? In other word, the client can send in ssn or [first_name AND last_name].

Is it possible? If so how should the schema look like?

Thanks,
Sri
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
