2. What's New in XML Schema 1.1?
The latest version of the XML Schema standard
provides numerous changes addressing developers' need to specify and validate
more granular business rules and provide for more flexible schema evolution.
This article explores some of the most notable changes in XML Schema 1.1 and
shows how you can implement them easily in XMLSpy 2014. A few of these new
- allow rules-based validation of business policies involving more than one
- allow a type to be dynamically assigned to an element based on an
attribute value in the XML instance document
- allow you to define a set of default attributes that automatically apply
to every complex type in the schema
more examples or check out the
online XML Schema 1.1 training course, which explores all these new features
in detail and provides real-world examples. If you're only interested in
learning what's new in XML Schema 1.1, skip ahead to Chapter 9.
3. XML Validation: The Need for Speed
When it comes to XML validation, speed is the
name of the game. The faster you can get a list of validation errors - along
with the information to help fix them - the better. Over the past few releases,
we've made this an important priority in XMLSpy, first in Version 2013 with the
Smart Fix XML validation, which actually provides a fix for a validation
error that you can apply automatically. In Version 2014, we extended Smart Fix
even further by enabling it in the graphical XML Schema editor, in addition to
Text View and Grid View.
You'll also experience faster-than-ever XML
validation speeds in XMLSpy 2014 thanks to integration of the
RaptorXML engine, which also adds validation support for XML Schema 1.1,
XSLT 3.0, and XQuery 3.0 (and earlier versions) with the strictest conformance
to the corresponding standards.
Last but not least is the ability to display
multiple validation errors at once, which has been requested by many customers.
You can now choose any number of errors to be
reported during validation. As always, detailed information is returned for each
validation error, allowing you to immediately visualize multiple issues and
correct them in any order. The multiple tabs of the validation window let you
store the list of errors as you re-validate, which can also be useful when
fixing multiple issues.
