XSD: Question on derivation-ok-restriction.5.4.2

I'm having trouble getting my head around the reason the that following file
won't validate with the following error output in Xerces version 2.6.0 and
XSLTC version 2.5.2 ( from the standard jdk1.5.0 beta ). Is there something I'm
missing from the spec?

============ OUTPUT (wrapped) =================

I read this as saying "you can't restrict a sequence with a choice",
which is what you're trying to do. Try wrapping the <choice> in a
<sequence> in the 'restricted' type.

Thanks for the reply Henry,
I think I'm starting to get my head around the
problem. As the preceding part of the specification says
'Any pointless occurrences of <sequence>, <choice> or <all> are ignored'
.. The follow examples prove your point in the first example here which still
fails to validate. While the second example where a meaningful <xs:sequence/>
was added *DOES* validate.

=========== example 1 ===================

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xs:schema targetNamespace="test"
elementFormDefault="qualified" attributeFormDefault="unqualified"
xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"
xmlns="test">

<xs:group name="myGroup" >
<xs:choice>
<xs:element name="two" type="xs:token"/>
<xs:element name="three" type="xs:token"/>
</xs:choice>
</xs:group>

<xs:complexType name="base">
<xs:sequence>
<xs:group ref="myGroup"/>
<xs:element name="one" type="xs:token" minOccurs="0"/>
<xs:element name="four" type="xs:token" minOccurs="0"/>
</xs:sequence>
</xs:complexType>

<xs:complexType name="restricted">
<xs:complexContent>
<xs:restriction base="base">
<xs:sequence>
<xs:group ref="myGroup"/>
</xs:sequence>
</xs:restriction>
</xs:complexContent>
</xs:complexType>

<xs:element name="root" type="restricted"/>
</xs:schema>

=========== example 2 ==========

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xs:schema targetNamespace="test"
elementFormDefault="qualified" attributeFormDefault="unqualified"
xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"
xmlns="test">

<xs:group name="myGroup" >
<xs:choice>
<xs:element name="two" type="xs:token"/>
<xs:element name="three" type="xs:token"/>
</xs:choice>
</xs:group>

<xs:complexType name="base">
<xs:sequence>
<xs:group ref="myGroup"/>
<xs:element name="one" type="xs:token" minOccurs="0"/>
<xs:element name="four" type="xs:token" minOccurs="0"/>
</xs:sequence>
</xs:complexType>

<xs:complexType name="restricted">
<xs:complexContent>
<xs:restriction base="base">
<xs:sequence>
<xs:group ref="myGroup"/>
<xs:element name="one" type="xs:token" minOccurs="0"/>
</xs:sequence>
</xs:restriction>
</xs:complexContent>
</xs:complexType>

<xs:element name="root" type="restricted"/>
</xs:schema>

It's actually been about 2 1/2 years since I asked a question in a newsgroup
usually I just goog..

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/...3Oct/0027.html

6 degrees of separation indeed 8^) . I'll grok a little harder next time.

My current understanding is that it's due to the functionality of the
<xs:choice/> vs <xs:sequence/> right? A <xs:choice/> can be constrained to
represent a <xs:sequence/> but there isn't a way to properly constrain a
<xs:sequence/> to a <xs:choice/> right?

Yup. The 'pointless occurrence' stuff fixed a bunch of problems, but
introduced a few as well, and you've found one of the latter.

Yes.

The XML Schema WG hope we'll soon be in a position to do better, and
allow things that clearly _ought_ to be valid restrictions to actually
_be_ valid restrictions :-).
