I expect Lei has gotten it sorted now since this topic is 10 years old.

Given that it's been 12 years since N. Gonzalez asked this question, I doubt he or she is still waiting on the answer.

A research paper is not a trivial thing to embark on, and certainly not an easy thing to produce. In this context writing a 'research paper' is not just researching something and then summarising it in a paper. A 'research paper' is a document that outlines the details of some deep understanding and advancement in some field of study that you have achieved.

It sounds like you have things a little back to front, which makes me wonder if you fully grasp the purpose of a research paper. Usually I'd expect the research and advancement to have happened already before the idea of writing a paper about it comes about.

Perhaps a more in depth discussion about it with your teacher would be advantageous for you.

Maybe that will help you find the error.

    That's hilarious! I particularly like the one where he makes her hold to deal with some duck quacking going on in the background.

    I love Manning for that and I wish all publishers did the same. Buy the book, not the format.

    Can you show the code you have so far?

    All of that XSD file extraction with the Apache library resulted in just a single String? Really? I'm surprised, and suspicious that is not the case. I would have expected it to have organised it into some sort of Collection type.

    You've extracted your data from the XSD file and now have something in Java. What is the Java type that holds the data?

    Hello John, welcome to the Ranch!

    What does the original data structure look like in Java?

    I haven't run the code, but I'd recommend reviewing the syntax usage of the '&' character for bitwise / boolean operations, and the '=' character for assignment / equality operations to make sure you're using them correctly (spoiler: you're not using them correctly)
