Dear Joris,

Thank you for contacting us.
Unfortunately batch validation of all XML documents in a collection is 
not yet possible. We will add  a feature request.
However you can use XQuery to perform a batch validation in eXist. Here 
is an example to get you started:

xquery version "1.0";
declare namespace  validation="http://exist-db.org/xquery/validation";

let $parentPath := "/db/test/"
let $schemaPath := "/db/test/personal.xsd"
let $childrenPaths := xmldb:get-child-resources($parentPath)
for $child in $childrenPaths
let $path := fn:concat($parentPath, $child)
where fn:ends-with($child, ".xml")
return <validate name="{$path}">
     {validation:validate-report(xs:anyURI($path), xs:anyURI($schemaPath))}
