Hi,

I am using nested simple type definitions. My sample schema fragment (see
below for the complete schema document) is,

  <xsd:simpleType name="mySmallPositiveInteger">
    <xsd:restriction>
      <xsd:simpleType>
        <xsd:restriction base="xsd:decimal">
          <xsd:fractionDigits value="0"/>
          <xsd:minInclusive value="1"/>
          <xsd:maxExclusive value="100"/>
          <xsd:whiteSpace value="collapse"/>
        </xsd:restriction>
      </xsd:simpleType>
      <xsd:minInclusive value="50"/>
    </xsd:restriction>
  </xsd:simpleType>

I am getting mixed results when I used it in various tools. This makes me
wonder if it is valid? If it is valid, how do I make these tools process it
without any errors?

Here is my score card ..

[1] IBM Schema Quality Checker ran without any errors

[2] XML Spy processed without any errors

[3] XSV processed without any errors

[4] webMethods Integration Server processed without any errors

[5] MS XSD Schema Validator at
http://apps.gotdotnet.com/xmltools/xsdvalidator/Default.aspx failed with 1
error,
<quote>
Validation error:

It is an error if maxInclusive is among the members of {facets} of {base
type definition} and {value} is greater than the {value} of the parent
maxInclusive. An error occurred at , (14, 4).

[6] AXIS chokes if nested simple type def is used within WSDL types element

[7] .NET chokes if nested simple type def is used within WSDL types element


Complete XML Schema document is,

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

<xsd:schema xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"
targetNamespace="http://www.jewellery.org/"
xmlns:j="http://www.jewellery.org/">

  <xsd:element name="item">
    <xsd:complexType>
      <xsd:sequence>
        <xsd:element name="quantity" type="j:mySmallPositiveInteger"/>
        <xsd:element name="quantity2" type="j:smallPositiveInteger"/>
      </xsd:sequence>
    </xsd:complexType>
  </xsd:element>

  <xsd:simpleType name="mySmallPositiveInteger">
    <xsd:restriction>
      <xsd:simpleType>
        <xsd:restriction base="xsd:decimal">
          <xsd:fractionDigits value="0"/>
          <xsd:minInclusive value="1"/>
          <xsd:maxExclusive value="100"/>
          <xsd:whiteSpace value="collapse"/>
        </xsd:restriction>
      </xsd:simpleType>
      <xsd:minInclusive value="50"/>
    </xsd:restriction>
  </xsd:simpleType>

  <xsd:simpleType name="smallPositiveInteger">
    <xsd:restriction>
      <xsd:simpleType>
        <xsd:restriction base="xsd:decimal">
          <xsd:fractionDigits value="0"/>
          <xsd:minInclusive value="1"/>
          <xsd:whiteSpace value="collapse"/>
        </xsd:restriction>
      </xsd:simpleType>
      <xsd:maxExclusive value="100"/>
    </xsd:restriction>
  </xsd:simpleType>
</xsd:schema>
