Running XMLReaderValidator on XSD 1.1 Schema

This section provides a tutorial example on new built-in datatypes introduced in XSD 1.1 and on validating XSD 1.1 schema with the XMLReader class from Xerces2. 2.11.0.

The previous tutorial showed us how to use the XMLReader class in "Xerces2 2.11.0 (XML Schema 1.1) (Beta)" version to validate XML document again XSD document. But the XSD document used, dictionary.xsd, does not use any XSD 1.1 features.

In order to test XSD 1.1 features with "Xerces2 2.11.0 (XML Schema 1.1) (Beta)", I wrote this sample XSD document that uses 4 built-in datatypes introduced in XSD 1.1:

<?xml version="1.1"?>
<xs:schema xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
<!-- xsd11_datatype_test.xsd
 - Copyright (c) 2013, HerongYang.com, All Rights Reserved.
-->
<xs:element name="XSD11_Datatype_Test">
  <xs:complexType>
    <xs:sequence>
      <xs:element name="AnyAtomicType" type="xs:anyAtomicType" 
        maxOccurs="unbounded"/>
      <xs:element name="DateTimeStamp" type="xs:dateTimeStamp" 
        maxOccurs="unbounded"/>
      <xs:element name="DayTimeDuration" type="xs:dayTimeDuration" 
        maxOccurs="unbounded"/>
      <xs:element name="YearMonthDuration" type="xs:yearMonthDuration" 
        maxOccurs="unbounded"/>
    </xs:sequence>
  </xs:complexType>
</xs:element>
</xs:schema>

Here is a sample XML document to test this XSD document:

<?xml version="1.1"?>
<!-- xsd11_datatype_test.xml
 - Copyright (c) 2013, HerongYang.com, All Rights Reserved.
-->

<XSD11_Datatype_Test 
   xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" 
   xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="xsd11_datatype_test.xsd">

<!-- 3 valid "anyAtomicType" representations -->
  <AnyAtomicType>   1971-05-16T00:00:01  </AnyAtomicType>
  <AnyAtomicType>   &#x5934;             </AnyAtomicType>
  <AnyAtomicType><![CDATA[   Hello <b>Herong</b>!   ]]>
  </AnyAtomicType>
 
<!-- 1 invalid "anyAtomicType" representations -->
  <AnyAtomicType>   Hello <b size="9">Herong</b>! </AnyAtomicType>

<!-- 1 valid "dateTimeStamp" representations -->
  <DateTimeStamp>   1971-05-16T00:00:01Z   </DateTimeStamp>

<!-- 1 invalid "dateTimeStamp" representations -->
  <DateTimeStamp>   &#x5934;      </DateTimeStamp>

<!-- 1 valid "dayTimeDuration" representations -->
  <DayTimeDuration>    P3DT5H20M30.123S  </DayTimeDuration>

<!-- 1 invalid "dayTimeDuration" representations -->
  <DayTimeDuration>   P1Y2M3DT5H20M30.123S    </DayTimeDuration>

<!-- 1 valid "yearMonthDuration" representations -->
  <YearMonthDuration>    P1Y2M  </YearMonthDuration>

<!-- 1 invalid "yearMonthDuration" representations -->
  <YearMonthDuration>   P1Y2M3DT5H20M30.123S    </YearMonthDuration>
</XSD11_Datatype_Test>

When running the XMLReader class tool, XMLReaderValidator.java, I get this error:

c:\Progra~1\Java\jdk1.7.0_07\bin\java
   -cp ".;c:\local\xerces-2_11_0-xml-schema-1.1-beta\xercesImpl.jar;

   \org.eclipse.wst.xml.xpath2.processor_1.1.0.jar"
   XMLReaderValidator xsd11_datatype_test.xml

Error:
   Public ID: null
   System ID: file:///C:/herong/xsd11_datatype_test.xsd
   Line number: 10
   Column number: 29
   Message: src-resolve.4.2: Error resolving component 
   'xs:anyAtomicType'. It was detected that 'xs:anyAtomicType' is in
   namespace 'http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema', but components from
   this namespace are not referenceable from schema document 
   'file:///C:/herong/xsd11_datatype_test.xsd'. If this is the 
   incorrect namespace, perhaps the prefix of 'xs:anyAtomicType' needs
   to be changed. If this is the correct namespace, then an 
   appropriate 'import' tag should be added to 
   'file:///F:/herong/xsd11_datatype_test.xsd'.

Error:
   Public ID: null
   System ID: file:///C:/herong/xsd11_datatype_test.xsd
   Line number: 10
   Column number: 29
   Message: src-resolve: Cannot resolve the name 'xs:anyAtomicType' 
   to a(n) 'type definition' component.

I am confused with this error. What does it mean that 'xs:anyAtomicType' is in the namespace, but components are not referenceable? See next tutorial for the answer.
