Hi Eric,

 From what I understand in your case the namespace and schema location 
have the same value.
The namespace is not interpreted as a schema location, it is just an 
Usually an xsd:import should have both schemaLocation and namespace.
If the schema location is missing, Oxygen has a feature which allows it 
to try and resolve the namespace identifier through the set-up catalogs.
Just go to the Oxygen Preferences->"XML / XML Catalog" page and check 
the "Process namespaces through URI mappings for XML Schema" checkbox.
Then, if your namespace is mapped using URI mappings through the 
catalogs configured in Oxygen to a schema location, that location will 
be used.
