This XQuery Module contains functions to perform validations against XML Schema and Document Type Declarations. This module has been introduced with Version 7.2.2.

All functions are preceded by the validation: prefix, which is linked to the statically declared http://basex.org/modules/validation namespace.

validate:xsd

Signatures validate:xsd($input as item()) as empty-sequence()
validate:xsd($input as item(), $schema as xs:string) as empty-sequence()
Summary Validates the document specified by $input.

$input may be

  • xs:string, containing the path to the document,
  • xs:string, containing the document in its string representation, or
  • node(), containing the actual document.

$input is required to contain an xsi:(noNamespace)schemaLocation as defined in W3C XML Schema, if no $schema is given.
$schema can be used to optionally specify the location of the XSD file for validation.

Exceptions Todo

validate:dtd

Signatures validate:dtd($input as item()) as empty-sequence()
validate:dtd($input as item(), $dtd as xs:string) as empty-sequence()

Examples

Example 1: Basic validation against a document containing a schema definition

Query:

validate:xsd($doc)
