This topic introduces the XML Validator tool, which  checks whether XML is well-formed and can also validate XML against schema definitions. 


 This tool requires a validate license.

Sections include:

Table of Contents


  • Validate Against Schema: Select if you would like to validate XML files against schema.
  • Check well-formedness only: Select if you would like to check the well-formedness of XML files.
  • Use namespace as location URI for Schemas: (Only available if Validate Against Schema is selected) When validating XML that uses schemas this option is used to indicate where to find the schema. If disabled, then each time the Validator encounters a namespace that it does not recognize, it will prompt you to supply the location. Only schemas that have been added to the Preference panel’s Schema Locations tab will be recognized. For more information on adding schema locations, seeXML Schema Locations Settings.

  • Validate against schemas referenced in the following WSDL or Schema: Enables/disables looking for imported schemas in the specified WSDL or schema file, as well as validating the XML against those schemas.

  • List of namespaces mapped to schema locations: Allows you to map namespaces to locations (if the namespace is not synonymous with the location).
  • List of namespaces to skip during XML Validation: Specifies namespaces to skip.
