A New Schema Sandbox

Schema validation outputThis morning, I was pondering a particular aspect of XML Schema. After checking the specification, I wanted to put it into practice by writing an XML document and a corresponding schema. To validate the document with the schema, the simplest thing would have been to do it in the browser, in one of our publicly accessible sandboxes. We already have sandboxes to run:

But to my surprise we didn't have an XML Schema sandbox! So I decided to put one together. Since our new Schema sandbox is using the PresentationServer validating processor, it will works as well with Relax NG, and will automatically detect if the schema you provide is a W3C XML Schema or Relax NG schema. The new schema sandbox is now up our web site: give it a try.
