I resend it (formated).

Hello,

I have 3 big xsd files. The problem is that I cann't validate an xml sample
using JAXP1.2. Also I tryed with JAXB and Castor but seems to be the same
problem.

I made an simple example in 3 files that generate the error:
1.xsd - this is the main file

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsd:schema targetNamespace="http://www.example.com/response"
xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"
xmlns:fmcg="http://www.example.com/fmcg"
xmlns:core="http://www.example.com/core"
xmlns="http://www.example.com/response" elementFormDefault="qualified"
attributeFormDefault="unqualified"> <xsd:import
namespace="http://www.example.com/fmcg" schemaLocation="2.xsd"/>
<xsd:element name="response" type="ResponseType"/>
    <xsd:complexType name="ResponseType">
        <xsd:sequence>
            <xsd:element name="senderName" type="xsd:string"/>
            <xsd:element ref="fmcg:item" minOccurs="0"
maxOccurs="unbounded"/>
        </xsd:sequence>
    </xsd:complexType>
</xsd:schema>

2.xsd

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><xsd:schema
targetNamespace="http://www.example.com/fmcg"
xmlns:core="http://www.example.com/core" xmlns="http://www.example.com/fmcg"
xmlns:fmcg="http://www.example.com/fmcg"
xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" elementFormDefault="qualified"
attributeFormDefault="unqualified">
<xsd:import namespace="http://www.example.com/core" schemaLocation="3.xsd"/>
<xsd:element name="item" type="ItemType"/>
    <xsd:complexType name="ItemType">
        <xsd:complexContent>
            <xsd:extension base="core:ItemType">
                 <xsd:sequence>
                     <xsd:element name="itemName" type="xsd:string"/>
                     </xsd:sequence>
             </xsd:extension>
         </xsd:complexContent>
    </xsd:complexType>
</xsd:schema>

3.xsd

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><xsd:schema
targetNamespace="http://www.example.com/core"
xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"
xmlns="http://www.example.com/core" elementFormDefault="unqualified"
attributeFormDefault="unqualified">
<xsd:complexType name="ItemType" abstract="true">
        <xsd:sequence>
                <xsd:element name="additionalItemName" type="xsd:string"
minOccurs="0"/>
        </xsd:sequence>
</xsd:complexType>
</xsd:schema>

And this is a sample xml file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><response
xmlns="http://www.example.com/response"
xmlns:core="http://www.example.com/core"
xmlns:fmcg=http://www.example.com/fmcg >
<senderName>String</senderName>
    <fmcg:item>
        <core:additionalItemName>String</core:additionalItemName>
        <fmcg:itemName>String</fmcg:itemName>
    </fmcg:item>
</response>

This files was all validated with Schema by XML Spy 5.0.
When I try to validate this XML file with JAXP1.2
I got this ERROR: (file:test.xml: 7, 28): cvc-complex-type.2.4.a: Invalid
content starting with element 'core:additionalItemName'.
One of '{"":additionalItemName, "http://www.example.com/fmcg":itemName}' is
expected.
It seems that the parser expects 'additionalItemName' instead of
'core:additionalItemName'.
Why ? I think the namespace is OK.(Also I tryed with Castor and JAXB and
seems to have the same error).

Also I tryed to generate a XSD schema with XML Spy 5.0 from the sample XML
file but the Schema generated was INVALID.
Why is something wrong with my files?
Can I write a simple XSD file(just 1 file - not 3 files as above) that
validate my XML file ?

Catalin
