Examples of XSD 1.1 and XML Files with Errors

This section provides an example XML file associated with an example XSD 1.1 file. The XML file contains some errors intentionally for see how XML validation tools report them.

Now I have a tool to validate XML documents against XSD 1.1 schema. I created a XSD 1.1 schema file, xsd11_datatype_test.xsd, with more new 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) 2014, 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>

I also created a sample XML document, xsd11_datatype_test.xml, with some incorrect elements:

<?xml version="1.1"?>
<!-- xsd11_datatype_test.xml
 - Copyright (c) 2014, 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 I run jaxp.SourceValidator on xsd11_datatype_test.xml, I get the following output:

>jdk8x2r jaxp.SourceValidator -xsd11 -i xsd11_datatype_test.xml

[Error] xsd11_datatype_test.xml:17:67: cvc-type.3.1.2: Element

Good. jaxp.SourceValidator reported all errors correctly with line numbers and column numbers indicate where errors occurred in the XML source document.
