I've knocked up a simple stand-alone java application that does just
that. (Well, actually it uses jaxp parser, which seems to be crimson
on my system, but no matter). It also uses Norman Walsh's catalog
resolver (in xml-commons). I knocked up a one-entry xml catalog, added
a doctype to one of the sitemaps, and then ran it against that
sitemap, and another one without a doctype declaration.
In the first case, it prints a messages saying <filename> validated
OK and exits code 0. In the latter it prints out an exception trace
and exits code 1. Presumably this is enough to put into ant (I guess
maybe it needs to be wrapped up as an ant task?)
