XmlBeans Validation

I am validating xml by validate() function provided by XmlBeans. But in my xml there are some tags which are not mentioned in xsd(Schema).
I am able to parse properly with the unwanted tag using XmlObject.Parse(), but the validation fails.

Is there any way to validate only the required tag present in XSD and skipping the unwanted tag.

Thanks in Advance!

No. The purpose of validating a document against a schema is to ensure that the document has the structure that the schema says it should. Either it does or it doesn't.

So what is the underlying problem here? Are people sending you documents which don't match the schema? If so, send them back and get them to fix the documents. Perhaps some training is needed for those people? Or perhaps they need a better tool to prevent them from making these errors?
I agree. Here's the link:
