Add-on schema caching?

Fri Oct 28, 2016 8:47 pm

We distribute and add-on to various users and a couple of our end users are experiencing a strange occurrence that i can't seem to duplicate. Basically, our add on points to our schema here: http://test.standards.qp.gov.bc.ca/standards/bylaw.xsd. Except that two of our users seem to be seeing an old version of this schema and their documents are not validating. Even after removing oxygen and re-installing, the problem persists. The user's can 'see' the schema in their browser so the machine has access to it, but still the problem occurs.

The only thing the user's have in common are that they are on Windows 7 and using Oxygen 18.1 (problem also happened with 17). My question is: Does Author 'cache' old schema data somewhere?

Hi,

We do not have such cachings persistent between restarts.
We cache schema information when you are typing in a certain XML file, and each time you type content Oxygen performs automatic validation, we do not download the schema each time typing occurs. But once you press the toolbar "Validate" button all the caching is removed.
Usually when working with remote schemas, people use XML catalogs to redirect the remote schema reference to a local copy of the schema. Maybe this is also the case here, those users have XML catalogs configured in Oxygen which re-direct the remove schema reference to a local older copy of the schema.

Regards,
Radu

Just an update. The problem was indeed not Oxygen and confirmed that it was due to a schema import that was not visible outside of our dev network. Thanks.
