Question about xsd:extension

Hi all,
I have a case where I have a element that can appear under multiple
elements
e.g.
<AppFunctions >
<UseTemplate name="1"/>
<MethodSet name="2">
<UseTemplate name="3" />
<MethodCall name="4" />
</MethodSet>
<MethodSet name="5">
<MethodCall name="6" />
</MethodSet>
<UseTemplate name="7" />
</AppFunctions>

I would like a way to define a root element which has just the
UseTemplate element and then derive 2 elements from it "AppFunctio ns"
and "MethodSet" which extend it to add further elements to it. This
elements in the derived elements need to unordered and can occur
multiple times. This is what I came up with:

<xs:complexTy pe name="UIElement Type">
<xs:choice maxOccurs="unbo unded">
<xs:element name="UseTempla te" type="UseTempla teType" minOccurs="0"
maxOccurs="unbo unded" />
</xs:choice>
</xs:complexType>

<xs:complexTy pe name="AppFuncti onType">
<xs:complexCont ent>
<xs:extension base="UIElement Type">
<xs:choice maxOccurs="unbo unded">
<xs:element name="MethodSet " type="MethodSet Type"
maxOccurs="unbo unded" />
</xs:choice>
</xs:extension>
</xs:complexConte nt>
</xs:complexType>

<xs:complexTy pe name="MethodSet Type">
<xs:complexCont ent>
<xs:extension base="UIElement Type">
<xs:choice maxOccurs="unbo unded">
<xs:element name="MethodCal l" type="MethodCal lType" minOccurs="0"
maxOccurs="unbo unded" />
</xs:choice>
<xs:attribute name="name" type="xs:string " use="required" />
</xs:extension>
</xs:complexConte nt>
</xs:complexType>

This definition is allowing me mutiple UseTemplate nodes directly under
AppFunctions but once I add a MethodSet node under AppFunctions, it
does not allow any UseTemplates anymore.

Thanx in advance,
Amol.

Hi,

That is because the content type of the derived type contains a
sequence of the two choices, see 3.2.3 from
http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-1/#key-efm
***
3.2.3 otherwise a pair of mixed or elementOnly (determined as per
clause 3.1.2.1 above) and a particle whose properties are as follows:

{min occurs}
1
{max occurs}
1
{term}
A model group whose {compositor} is sequence and whose {particles}
are the particle of the {content type} of the type definition
·resolved· to by the ·actual value· of the base [attribute]
followed by the ·effective content·.
***

Best Regards,
George

Is there any other way to get the behavior where the extension would
behave as a choice rather than sequence. The element I want to
"inherit" occurs under multiple elements so rather than define once
under each I was hoping to define it once in a parent element and
extend all the elements that need it from the parent element.

Thanx, Amol.

No, In XML Schema the model created by extension is sequence.
On possible approach is to place common content in a named group and
refer to that group from your complex types where you want that common
content.
Another one that will have a behaviour very close to what you want is
to define for instance an abstract element, let's say instruction and
define the content model using references to this element. Then you can
define actual non abstract elements that can substitute instruction.
The instruction element will be basically replaced in this way with a
choice of all the elements from its substiturion group.
Have a look at the XML Schema for XSLT 2.0, there you can find
something like I described above:
http://www.w3.org/TR/xslt20/#schema-for-xslt

Best Regards,
George

Hi there. I'm having a problem which I hope is a simple one... Any help would be appreciated. I think it has something to do with the way attributes are (or are not) inherited in schemas... This is the content of my XML Schema (minus the schema tag): <xsd:complexType name="AType"> <xsd:attribute name="attr1" type="xsd:string" />

I'm unable to use the "xsd:all" tag in derived objects, in a hierarchical schema setup.
