XML Validation

Hi - I'm trying to validate an XML document against an XSD document. I'm currently using Xerces-J. I've found that I can turn on validation by setting a validation feature and then setting a property pointing to my XSD document. But, when I run the parser, I get errors about my DOCROOT being incorrect because it doesn't point to a DTD file (I actually don't have a DOCROOT tag at all in my XML doc). I'm trying to validate against an XSD, NOT a DTD. Is there a way to do this?

Thanks,
Jeff

Welcome to JavaRanch,

the Question is more related to the XML is better to post XML and Related Technologies forum to get faster reply.

Do you check for exceptions when you turn on schema validation and specify your schema file ? It may be that the version of Xerces you have doesn't support schema validation.

No exceptions are being thrown (aside from the DTD error) and it looks like it is actually validating against the XSD as well.
