Hi folks, and pardon what must surely be a noob question.I'm having trouble extending (by restriction) a complextType that is defined in an imported xsd.the first xsd looks like this:<xs:schema targetNamespace="http://www.example.com/ns1" xmlns="http://www.example.com/ns1" xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" elementFormDefault="qualified" attributeFormDefault="unqualified"> <xs:complexType name="testComplexType"> <xs:sequence> <xs:element name="element1" maxOccurs="unbounded"/> <xs:element name="element2" minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded"/> </xs:sequence> </xs:complexType> <xs:complexType name="testComplexTypeByRestriction"> <xs:complexContent> <xs:restriction base="testComplexType"> <xs:sequence> <xs:element name="element1" maxOccurs="1"/> </xs:sequence> </xs:restriction> </xs:complexContent> </xs:complexType></xs:schema>The file above validates just fine.The next file looks like this:<xs:schema xmlns:ns1="http://www.example.com/ns1" xmlns="http://www.example.com/ns2" xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:ns2="http://www.example.com" targetNamespace="http://www.example.com/differentFile" elementFormDefault="qualified" attributeFormDefault="unqualified"> <xs:import namespace="http://www.example.com/ns1" schemaLocation="Untitled21.xsd"/> <xs:complexType name="testComplexTypeByRestrictionInNs2"> <xs:complexContent> <xs:restriction base="ns1:testComplexType"> <xs:sequence> <xs:element name="element1" maxOccurs="1"/> </xs:sequence> </xs:restriction> </xs:complexContent> </xs:complexType></xs:schema>This xsd does NOT validate, "testComplexTypeByRestrictionInNs2 is not a valid restriction of the content model of complex type "testComplexType"What is it that I'm missing?Thanks very much in advance!Eric.
