XSL transform

Msg#: 4411134 posted 4:54 pm on Jan 26, 2012 (gmt 0)


I am quite new to xsl. I have an requirement, where I have 3 files - xsd schema, xml based on the schema and an xsl stylesheet.

My aim is to check for mandatory values in xml for all the xsd elements using annotation (not using minoccurs).

For example,

IF documentation of element says mandatory
and field has no value in xml
print an error message

you can accomplish "if" conditions in the XSL, using <xsl:if>. Check the value of the element, and if it's not valid, display your error.


if you need an if/else structure, then use <xsl:choose>

yes i do understand this, but i am not getting the syntax to read anotation->documentation for all elements in xsd.

The question is, why are you trying to use the annotations for that in the first place? Sounds fraught with problems.
There is a blog here that will help you however
