Subject RE: xsd and org.apache.commons.digester.Digester
Date Fri, 30 Jun 2006 20:53:12 GMT
Hello again,

I fixed the earlier problem I was having with parsing my xml doc, but now
I'm getting another one -

2006-06-30 16:04:40,469 ERROR org.apache.commons.digester.Digester - Parse
Error at line 2 column 13: Document is invalid: no grammar found.
org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: Document is invalid: no grammar found.

I'm using commons-digester 1.7 and an xsd to read from my xml file.

>>From the research I've been doing online, it seems this error could be
related to the fact that I somehow need to configure the digester to let it
know I'm validating using XML schema... but I'm not sure.

Can anyone point me in the right direction as far as solving this problem?


<Relevant Code>
//Java code that creates the digester and calls parse
String configPath = "/WEB-INF/classes/uwaf-config.xml";

digester = new Digester();
digester.addRuleSet(new ConfigRuleSet());

InputStream input = null;
URL url = getServletContext().getResource(configPath);
InputSource is = new InputSource(url.toExternalForm());
input = url.openStream();

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
<uwaf-config xmlns:xsi = ""
             xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation =
  <view-mappings type="com.utrs.framework.webapp.examples.PageProcessor">
    <view path="/home" forward="/home.jsp" >
        <set-property property="home" value="HOME" />

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<xs:schema version="1.1" 
           elementFormDefault="qualified" attributeFormDefault="qualified">
  <!-- definition of complex type elements -->
  <xs:element name="uwaf-config">
        <xs:element name="view-mappings" type="map-list" maxOccurs="1"/>
        <xs:attribute name="id" type="id" use="optional"/>

Subject: xsd and org.apache.commons.digester.Digester

Hi everyone,

I'm unable to parse an XML file I've created using the commons Digester when
I use an xsd file vs. a dtd file.
Is anyone aware of any known issues with this?

I'm using commons-digester-1.7. When I try to validate the xml file against
the xsd, I get the following error -

"2006-06-29 14:50:38,714 ERROR org.apache.commons.digester.Digester - Parse
Fatal Error at line 1 column 3: The markup declarations contained or pointed
to by the document type declaration must be well-formed.

org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: The markup declarations contained or pointed
to by the document type declaration must be well-formed."

The xml file seems to validate properly against a dtd. Also, the xsd file is
incomplete, I know, and I was expecting to get an error - just not the one I
got. The error I ended up getting when I tried to parse the xml file leads
me to believe there may be a problem with the Digester working with xsd
files. I just want to verify that this is the case before I continue writing
this xsd. If not, please let me know what I'm doing wrong and I'll keep
going. (The dtd I validated against was complete - btw.)
