As the comment in the code states, the JDK 7 language change supporting catching of multiple exceptions in a single /** * Generates array of Stream Source instances representing XSDs * associated with the file paths/names provided and use JDK 8 * Stream API.* * This method can be commented out if using a version of * Java prior to JDK 8.To enable this, a /** * Validates provided XML against provided XSD.
In other words, XSDs with no “include” dependencies will generally be provided on the command line before those XSDs that include them.
The next code listing is for the complete package dustin.examples.xmlvalidation; import sax.
Unfortunately, the W3C XSL-T specification does not provide any APIs for transformation.
Therefore, the JAXP 1.1 Expert Group (EG) introduced a set of APIs called Transformation API for XML (Tr AX) in JAXP 1.1, and since then, JAXP is called Java API for XML Processing.
July 6, 2005 Rahul Srivastava After the first release of the W3C XML 1.0 recommendation in early 1998, XML started gaining huge popularity.
Sun Microsystems Inc., at that time had just formalized the Java Community Process (JCP), and the first version of JAXP (JSR-05) was made public in early 2000, supported by industry majors like (in chronological order) BEA Systems, Fujitsu Limited, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Netscape Communications, Oracle, and Sun Microsystems, Inc.The previous code listing shows the straightforward approach available in the standard JDK for validating XML against XSDs. * @param xsd Files Paths And Names XSDs against which to validate the XML; * should not be null or empty.*/ public static void validate Xml Against Xsds( final String xml File Path And Name, final String xsd Files Paths And Names) instance can be obtained with the specified type of schema (XMLConstants. This method also handles the various types of exceptions that might be thrown during the validation process.The Java tool developed in this post requires JDK 8.However, the simple Java application can be modified fairly easily to work with JDK 7 or even with a version of Java as old as JDK 5.*/ private static Stream Source generate Stream Sources From Xsd Paths Jdk8( final String xsd Files Paths) that could be used instead of this method for code bases on a version of Java earlier than JDK 8.
