XML Schema --- <xs:choice maxOccurs=5>

Given:

<xs:choice maxOccurs=5>
<xs:element name="Foo" type="bar" />
<xs:element name="Foo1" type="bar" />
<xs:element name="Foo2" type="bar" />
</xs:choice>

Is the choice made once and then the choosen element can occur 5 times,
or is the choice made once for each occurance?

I'm looking for the first behavior, choose once, then allow the choosen
element 5 times. I'm not sure how to get that..

What you have will make five choices. What you want is (replace
min/maxOccurs with whatever boundaries you need):

<xs:choice>
<xs:element name="Foo" type="bar" minOccurs="5" maxOccurs="5"/>
<xs:element name="Foo1" type="bar" minOccurs="5" maxOccurs="5"/>
<xs:element name="Foo2" type="bar" minOccurs="5" maxOccurs="5"/>
</xs:choice>

Simplest way to answer this sort of question is often to try it and see
what it does. (I think the answer is "choose five times", as you want it
to be, but I don't do enough with schemas to be certain and I'd try it
myself.)

Ok, brand new to SQLXML 3.0 and its various issues. Heres what I'm trying to do: 1. I am trying to load xml data into an empty SQL table from my .NET console application. 2. This isn't a huge amount of data so I'm not interested in BulkXMLLoad (or whatever its called). 3. I have the xml and xml schema ready to go, with (I hope) the proper sql annotations.

The usage of <xs:choice maxOccurs="unbounded"> When we want to define a set of elements that could be in any order and with any occurences (0-unbounded), we can use <xs:choice maxOccurs="unbounded"> But I alway think that is not a good schema definition for XML files, and it must influence the writing and reading performance of these set of elements if there are large amounts of sub-elements. We can imagine that the retrieval of any...
