Hi - I'm trying to validate an XML document against an XSD document. I'm currently using Xerces-J. I've found that I can turn on validation by setting a validation feature and then setting a property pointing to my XSD document. But, when I run the parser, I get errors about my DOCROOT being incorrect because it doesn't point to a DTD file (I actually don't have a DOCROOT tag at all in my XML doc). I'm trying to validate against an XSD, NOT a DTD. Is there a way to do this?

Thanks,
Jeff

That's one of many XML questions answered by the XML FAQ.

Is it just the example that validates using XSD or is there a specific section showing how to turn off DTD validation?

Thanks,
Jeff

Hello Jeff,
try this-
http://xerces.apache.org/xerces2-j/faq-pcfp.html
see section-
"How can I tell the parser to validate against XML Schema and not to report DTD validation errors?"

Sorry for the slow response -- but thanks for the help. That was quite useful.
