NVDL validation

Post by martindholmes » Tue Sep 17, 2019 7:20 pm

Hi there,

Using recent releases of the Jing jar file, we're finding that NVDL validation fails with error messages related to parsing of Schematron and namespaces. However, when we do the same validation in Oxygen, we don't see those errors, so it seems likely that Oxygen is passing some flag to Jing that enables it to do its work in a slightly different way. Is there anything you can tell us about Oxygen's process of validating XML against NVDL schemas that would help us to get this validation working outside the Oxygen environment?

All help appreciated,

Hi Martin,

As far as I know the JING parser supports only Schematron 1.5 and 1.6, see:

At some point we added some patches in our code with some partial support for ISO Schematron but as far as I know those patches were not migrated to the JING project.
