XSD 1.1 not Supported by sax.Writer

This section provides a tutorial example showing that sax.Writer does not support XSD 1.1.

As you can see from tests in the previous section, sax.Writer can be used as a nice validation tool on XML documents associated with an XSD schema.

Now I want to see if sax.Writer supports XSD 1.1 or not:

>type hello_xsd11.xsd
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsd:schema xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
 <xsd:element name="p" type="xsd:anyAtomicType"/>
</xsd:schema>

>type hello_xsd11.xml
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<p xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" 
 xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="hello_xsd11.xsd">
Hello world!</p>


>jdk8x2r sax.Writer -v -s hello_xsd11.xml

[Error] hello_xsd11.xsd:3:50: src-resolve.4.2: Error resolving 
^^^ component 'xsd:anyAtomicType'. It was detected that 
^^^ 'xsd:anyAtomicType' is in namespace 
^^^ 'http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema', but components from this 
^^^ namespace are not referenceable from schema document 
^^^ 'file:///C:/herong/hello_xsd11.xsd'. If this is the incorrect 
^^^ namespace, perhaps the prefix of 'xsd:anyAtomicType' needs to be 
^^^ changed. If this is the correct namespace, then an appropriate
^^^ 'import' tag should be added to 
^^^ 'file:///C:/herong/hello_xsd11.xsd'.
[Error] hello_xsd11.xsd:3:50: src-resolve: Cannot resolve the name 
^^^ 'xsd:anyAtomicType' to a(n) 'type definition' component.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<p xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="hello_xsd11.xsd">
Hello world!</p>

Too bad, sax.Writer does not support XSD 1.1. As you can see, the new datatype xsd:anyAtomicType introduced in XSD 1.1 is not recognized.
