Validating xml visual studio
You can also use a Raptor XML Server to validate XML documents. Save the file as file Create the XSD Schema, and Link to XML Document 1. I discuss how to validate that the XML file references the XSD and the validates against the XSD here You can choose to actually publish the schema to a website for validation if it’s an “open schema.” If it’s closed and you are simply using it for internal validation, then it makes sense to embed as a resource.A best practice is to validate your method parameters before acting on them.The Power Shell Community Extensions (1.2 and higher) provides a command to do just that called Having a well-formed XML file is a good thing but that doesn’t necessarily mean the schema of the XML file is correct.If there is a schema (.xsd) file for your XML, you can use it to do further validation.If the XSD is publicly available using HTTP and referenced through a "schema Location" or "no Namespace Schema Location", then the validator will pick it up and it doesn't need to be specified/uploaded.*The maximum size limit for file upload is 2 megabytes.
When making quick changes to an XML file in a simple editor like Notepad, it is prudent to check the updated XML file before checking it back in or deploying it.A good, solid XML document will have a valid schema to validate against. There are several online tools that can help generate a template of the schema from a sample XML document, like this one.Visual Studio provides full intellisense for building out your schema.The validator checks for well formedness first, meaning that your XML file must be parsable using a DOM/SAX parser, and only then does it validate your XML against the XML Schema.
The validator will report fatal errors, non-fatal errors and warnings.We will be doing maintenance on the Community this Sunday, September 1st, beginning at am MT.
