Validating XML file using multiple Schema files.

Hello all,

My xml and schema file header are as follows.

1) cisGlobals.xsd.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsd:schema targetNamespace="http://www.talgov.com/cisGlobals"
<!-- all content -->

2) accountInformationUpdate.xsd
<xs:schema elementFormDefault="unqualified"
<xs:import namespace="http://www.talgov.com/cisGlobals"
<xs:element name="AccountUpdate">
<!-- all content -->

There is no default namespace defined in this schema file, but this is
importing from a schema file which has a target namespace. what would
be the namespace of this schema file.

3) cis.xml
<AccountUpdate xmlns:cisGlobals="http://www.talgov.com/cisGlobals"
<!-- all content -->

Here I am using the namespace of http://www.talgov.com/cisGlobals this
is the target namespace used in first schema file. How would the
AccountUpdate and rest of the tags would be referred as.

When I try to validate the above files using MSXML4 or .Net XML class
library they fail to validate. But XML SPY validates these files
without any errors. Any ideas?

Thank you for all your help.

Your second schema document defines names in no namespace. There is
not inheritance of target namespaces from imported schemas. So MSXML
is correct to give an error - the document your xsi:schemaLoc points
to for the cisGlobals namespace is not in fact for that namespace.

One way you could correct this is to change your instance document as

<AccountUpdate xmlns:cisGlobals="http://www.talgov.com/cisGlobals"
xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="accountInformationU pdate.xsd">
<!-- all content -->

Hope this helps,
