schema for complex xml


Recommended Posts

My problem is to define a schema for a file like:

<Root>  <Elemant1/>  <Elemant2/>  <Elemant3/>  <Elemant3/>  <Elemant2/>  <!--optional<ElemantX/>-->  <Elemant3/>  <Elemant4/></Root>

my problem is the repeating of elements and the optional elements.I tried the following schema:

...<sequence minOccurs=0 maxOccurs=unbound>  <Elemant1/>  <Elemant2/>  <Elemant3/>  <ElemantX/>  <Elemant4/></sequence>...

but now the order is fix, if I use <all> I can't define more than one occurance of an element.Thanks for Help

Thats right, but now you can only have one item of each sort. And that exactly is my problem, would need a coice where each item can appear more than one time.Thanks for trying !

i'm new at this, but i believe if you do something like this:
<sequence><choice maxOccurs="unbounded"><Elemant1/> <Elemant2/> <Elemant3/> <ElemantX/> <Elemant4/></choice></sequence>

that should allow multiple elements in any order.see this topic:http://w3schools.invisionzone.com/index.php?showtopic=1828
