This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I have defined an xsd using which i am doing the following -
- listing 'job schedules' [ these are spring batch jobs , defined in their own specific config xmls]
- each 'schedule' has a list of parameters inlcuding: cron string, a few file/ directory paths (relative), the job config xml path.
Now, yes, I could do this using spring framework quartz beans and have the "configLocation" or, spring context "property-placeholder" element set to read the properties file I need to read in order to resolve the filenames/ filepaths listed in each 'job schedule' element.
But, I am not using spring beans here at all. (I do think it is probably is a bad idea, but for some reason, that is how it is going to be)
So, every element is "string" as per this xsd. I am trying to find if there is any way I can import / refer to the properties file within these xml? by changing my own xsd and not using the spring /context/quartz schema.
However, I am using spring to load the context and have the "scheduler" kick off. So, I am able to load the config and jobs using XML files generated using this schema, but the relative paths get unresolved.
Any suggestion, pointer is most welcome.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
