But if try to validate the xml with same xsd by using online utility it works.It is giving following error.Does anyone faced the same problem? Thanks in advance Error: DocumentBuilderFactory: org.apache.xerces.jaxp.DocumentBuilderFactoryImpl error: InvalidRegex: Pattern value 'first|last|[-#]?[0-9]+' is not a valid regular expression. The reported error was: ''-' is an invalid character range. Write '\-'.'. error: cvc-complex-type.3.2.2: Attribute 'handle' is not allowed to appear in element 'portletinstance'. Root node: #comment
The error message was attempting to tell you that the "minus" character, e.g. - .... is a reserved character in regular expressions, apparently. You should escape it by prefixing it with the blackslash ... so, [\-#]? might work for you.
