Thanks Ken, I see what you're saying.

I gave that a try (I replaced data with string). Unfortunately, I get the same error message.

Are you getting that error message at the execution of the test (where you brought our focus in your post to the list), or is it associated with the loading of the source document? If the latter, you have to turn off schema validation on the loading of the document, otherwise, of course it won't be valid. You haven't protected the validation from happening selectively.


You can use input-type-annotations="strip" so that your input tree has no type information (and thus won't be constrained by the schema).

I hope this is what you need.
