Subject RE: Validating against a DTD
Date Fri, 08 Nov 2002 18:28:27 GMT
Thanks for the suggestion Brion.


This suggestion will work, but I don't really want to "modify" the
original XML stream

Just kinda surprised that there's no API in xerces to specify a DTD that
I want to validate against

Hi Henry,


The way I've handled this in the past is to peek at the incoming stream
before the parser ever gets a look at it, and insert a DOCTYPE element
in the front of the stream.  Note: this may require removing or saving
the XML processing instruction and/or any comments that appear before
the document element if those items are important to you.

Subject: Validating against a DTD

Hi all,


Just wondering if there was a way to validate an XML doc against a DTD

*WITHOUT* the XML doc specifying which DTD to load (i.e. no DOCTYPE) My
customer is sending an XML stream and I want to validate it against my
own DTD
