Elements with values:



so, above XML document is the correct as shown in book. My question is a how is that? when we say minOccurs=0 then how it could have record in XML document like
<minOccursElem>5</minOccursElem> ?

There should not be this record because it has minOccurs="0"

Please explain me in detail....

The default value of minOccurs and maxOccurs is 1. So if you don't specify a value the element should be exactly present once. Now in your example you have set the minOccurs value to 0, but you haven't set the maxOccurs value which will have the default value. This means that the maxOccurs is 1. Now this element could be present 0 or 1 times. In your example this element is present 1 time which is within the valid range.
