XSLT failing to load include tag in XSD schema file

392 Expert 256MB
I am trying to run an XSLT on a schema (XSD) file. The schema file has a "xsd:include" tag that includes another XSD file. When I load the schema in XML editors like XML Spy the data from all of the files is loaded. When I run the XSL translation only the XSD data from the first file is loaded and translated. The data from the file referenced in the included tag is skipped.

Anyone have any ideas why?

Example XSD file
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" standalone="yes"?>
  2. <xsd:schema targetNamespace="http://ACORD.org/Standards/Life/2" xmlns="http://ACORD.org/Standards/Life/2" elementFormDefault="unqualified" attributeFormDefault="unqualified" version="2.18.00" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
  3.     <xsd:include schemaLocation="XMLife2.18.00.xsd" />
  4.     <xsd:element name="ChangeSubType" type="ChangeSubType_Type" />
  5. .....
  6. .....
  7. .....
  8. </xsd:schema>

The XSLT engine treats the file purely as XML, ignoring the other meaning behind include.
I would suggest including a template like so:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <xsl:template match="xsd:include">
  2.   <xsl:apply-templates select="document(@schemaLocation)"/>
  3. </xsl:template>

Im afraid that does not work. That runs the XSLT on the three files independently. It needs to load and process them all as one file. The same way it would if you where loading the XSD to validate XML data.

I have tried it in JDeveloper and XML Spy with the same problem. I also tried removing the XSL prefix. I can not seem to find a way to get it to process the include tag.

Is it possible to create a giant merged xsd through one pass, and then run a xslt on the result?

Another option might be to create a global reference variable, with all 3 files in it. eg
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <xsl:variable name="master">
  2.   <xsl:apply-templates select="/" mode="copy"/>
  3. </xsl:variable>
  4. <xsl:template match="xsd:include" mode="copy">
  5.   <xsl:apply-templates select="document(@schemaLocation)/xsd:schema/*"/>
  6. </xsl:template>
  7. <xsl:template match="*" mode="copy">
  8.   <xsl:copy>
  9.     <xsl:copy-of select="@*"/>
  10.     <xsl:apply-templates/>
  11.   </xsl:copy>
  12. </xsl:template>
  13. --
  14. rest of xsl...

Sorry, that I did not follow up with the solution. That is exactly what I ended up doing.
