Hi, I am validating my XML file by means of an XSD. Can I specify in the XSD for not accepting a particular pattern. I don't want to accept the string containing pattern "'". Becuase if it tries to get inserted into database error will occur. Thanks in advance prathibha
Hello there, I think, if you derive your type from xsd:string and then you specify what it should contain in the xsd attern you'll get what what you're looking for. For example if I wanted my string to contain things like <string of lower letters>@<string of lower letters>.com (as in firstname.lastname@example.org), I could do something like this: <xsd:element name="myUrl"> <xsd:simpleType> <xsd:restriction base = "xsd:string"> <xsd attern value = "([a-z])+@([a-z])+.(com)"/> </xsd:restriction> </xsd:simpleType> </xsd:element>
if you change <xsd attern value = "([a-z])+@([a-z])+.(com)"/> to <xsd attern value = "([a-z])+"/> you'll ensure that it will not be empty and will only contain any combination of letters. Hope this helps Ambrose Tati
Stop it! You're embarassing me! And you are embarrassing this tiny ad!
