Re: Facing problem when validating XML with multiple root node Schema

Hi All,

I have found a not-so-valid cause of the problem. In my actual
implementaion on the Sun OS I had given a relative reference to the
Schema file and when I changed the path reference to an absolute one
wrt the root directory, the parser validates both the XMLs without any
errors.

But the problem still quizzes me as to why should the parser pick the
relative reference of the schema file for one XML while fail for the
other XML.

Thanks for all the help,
Vineet
