Subject Re: parsing XML Schema, no validation required, Problems: Error resolving component 's:schema'...
Date Tue, 18 Mar 2008 11:46:41 GMT
 thank you very much for the answer!
 I included the recommended line in my file and saw that it solved the problem. As I already
mentioned, I don't want to edit the files manually, so I want to append the necessary information
in form of a node.
 I tried the following:
 ....Element rootSchemaElement = getSchemaElementFromDefinition(def);
     Document document = rootSchemaElement.getOwnerDocument();
     Element newNode = document.createElement("s:import");
     newNode.setAttribute("namespace", "http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema");
     newNode.setAttribute("schemaLocation", "http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema.xsd");
    schemaElement.insertBefore(newNode, schemaElement.getChildNodes().item(1));
 //As alternative  to: schemaElement.insertBefore(newNode, schemaElement.getChildNodes().item(1));
 //I tried also: schemaElement.appendChild(newNode);
 I checked (with get-Methods), if the attributes are set and if the NodeName is the proper
one, the answer was positive. But if I insert (append) the node and parse the schema I get
the following error:
 [Error] :-1:-1: s4s-elt-invalid-content.1: The content of 'schema' is invalid.  Element 's:import'
is invalid, misplaced, or occurs too often.
 I tried to change the number of the item, to which I append, it doesn't help. So the element
is likely to be invalid.
 What am I doing wrong? I think, that something is absent in this node, but I don't know what;
maybe it is some character or a symbol, that the tag is closed...
 I want only to add the following information to the schema: <s:import namespace="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"
 Best regards,

Hi Nataliya,

The schema document embedded in your WSDL is missing a required import:

<s:import namespace="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"

This isn't just a validation error. The XSModel you've built is missing
components. If you want to resolve this issue you need to add the import to
the document. If you don't want to edit the file on disk you could add it
to the DOM in memory before passing the schema root Element node to the

The entity resolver gives your application an opportunity to do custom
resolution of schemaLocations (e.g. redirecting to a local copy of
XMLSchema.xsd) on includes/imports/redefines. There's an FAQ [1] on the XML
Catalog resolver with some examples on the Xerces-J website. Note that it
won't be called in this case unless you have an import for the
"http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" namespace in your schema.

Hello dear users and developers!

I have a great problem while parsing some XML-Schemas. My task is to
extract the information from WSDL-Files and parse an included schema as

I read about "Using XML Schema", "Caching & Preparsing Grammars" and
some of the threads in the mailing-list. I saw, that some people had
similar problems, but I can't resolve mine.

So, I parse the wsdl-File with wsdl4j and extract the schema-Element
from it.

Then I want to use the Methods of XSModel, which offer all the
possibilities to extract the necessary information.

Because of the line "<s:element ref="s:schema" />" in the schema (in my
example) I have a problem and the following error:

[Error] :-1:-1: src-resolve.4.2: Error resolving component 's:schema'.
It was detected that 's:schema' is in namespace
'http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema', but components from this namespace
are not referenceable from schema document 'file:/C:/MyData/test.wsdl'.
If this is the incorrect namespace, perhaps the prefix of 's:schema'
needs to be changed. If this is the correct namespace, then an
appropriate 'import' tag should be added to 'file:/C:/MyData/test.wsdl'.

I don't want to make some changes in the wsdl-File, because the
validation is not important for me, my task is to analyse the existing
files and not to improve them. The most confusing thing is that the
parser extracts everything what I want from the schema element (i.e. it
runs without to stop), but I see this validation error all the time.

I don't want to validate! I want to extract! What can I do in this case?
Can I turn off the validation feature and get an XSModel anyway? Can I
turn off the reporting of the validation errors?

Can some art of resolver help in this case? Can I say: if s:schema
appears, the "http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" schould be used? I don'd
understand the feature setEntityResolver... Can anybody give some
samples? Could I use some default resolvers or the resolvers in
resolver.jar? How can I do this?

Please, help me!

Best regards,

Here is some Code for better undestanding:

    WSDLFactory factory = WSDLFactory.newInstance();
    WSDLReader reader = factory.newWSDLReader();

    reader.setFeature("javax.wsdl.verbose", true);
    reader.setFeature("javax.wsdl.importDocuments", true);

    String urlToWSDLFile = "C:/MyData/test.wsdl";
    Definition def = reader.readWSDL(urlToWSDLFile);
    Element rootSchemaElement = getSchemaElementFromDefinition(def);
    DOMInputSource domInput = new DOMInputSource(rootSchemaElement);

    XMLGrammarPreparser xmlGrammarPreparser = new XMLGrammarPreparser();


    XMLGrammarLoader schemaLoader =

    try {

        Grammar preparseGrammar =

        XSGrammar xsGrammar = (XSGrammar) preparseGrammar;

        XSModel xsModel = xsGrammar.toXSModel();
