I want to validate xml against its schema using SAX. How to extract the valid data into a "valid xml file" and invalid data into "invalid xml file". Any suggestions or code samples?

Welcome to the Ranch.

I think this would be better off in the XML forum so I'm moving it for you.

That isn't how validation by schema works. All you get from that is "OK" or "Not OK, here's why".

And anyway it's quite unlikely that the set of nodes rejected by the schema is going to be a well-formed XML document. Even if the schema did proceed beyond the first invalid node, which it doesn't.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
