Recently I attended an interview in which he asked me a question - In SAX there is a support for DTDs but if you do NOT have DTD and you have been given an XSchema instead ...... then how do you process an XML application ? I do not know the answer and I could not wild-guess. But I thought I could share it with you guys. Do you know the answer ?

Sun's Java Web Services Developer Pack is said to support XML schemas by introducing an early version of JAXP 1.2 which includes schema support. From the Java Web Services Tutorial:
Another popular schema language is XML Schema, which is being developed by the World Wide Web (W3C) consortium. XML Schema is a significantly more powerful language than DTD, and with its passage into a W3C Recommendation in May of 2001, its use and implementations have increased. The community of developers using the Java platform has recognized this, and the expert group for the Java� API for XML Processing (�JAXP�) has been working on adding sup-port for XML Schema to the JAXP 1.2 specification.

In the same document, there are some explanations on how you would go about validating XML documents with XML schemas in section Validating with XML Schema [ July 31, 2002: Message edited by: Valentin Crettaz ]
