Validating xml against schema
These XML files are believed to be a consistent XML Schema expression for creating and validating XML documents based on the IEEE Std 1685-20 Standards for IP-XACT, Standard Structure for Packaging, Integrating and Re-using IP within Tool-flows.
The purpose of this schema is to allow the creation and validation of XML documents conforming to the IEEE Std 1685-20 Standards for IP-XACT, Standard Structure for Packaging, Integrating and Re-using IP within Tool-flows.
Each language has its own advantages and disadvantages.
DTDs are perhaps the most widely supported schema language for XML.
For various reason we have to use XML file as our data source, To verify the format of data we can use XSD file, by validate against a XSD file we can check that we get proper formatted data as we required.
In c# there is some very good library for that in coding u have to call doc.
Validation of an instance document against a schema can be regarded as a conceptually separate operation from XML parsing.The process of checking to see if a XML document conforms to a schema is called validation, which is separate from XML's core concept of syntactic well-formedness.All XML documents must be well-formed, but it is not required that a document be valid unless the XML parser is "validating", in which case the document is also checked for conformance with its associated schema.This schema shall not be modified, adapted, altered, sublicensed, nor any derivative works shall be created based upon the schema.An XML schema is a description of a type of XML document, typically expressed in terms of constraints on the structure and content of documents of that type, above and beyond the basic syntactical constraints imposed by XML itself.
