This is done using So in order to make use of the Address Type which is defined in Common Types.xsd, and part of the namespace " Test.com/Common Types", we must fully qualify it.
In order to do this we must define an alias for the namespace " Test.com/Common Types", we do this by adding another attribute in the This specifies that the alias "cmn" represents the namespace " Test.com/Common Types".
They make definitions easier to read and version as they break down the schema into smaller units that are simpler to manage.
This all works fine without namespaces, but if different teams start working on different files, then you have the possibility of name clashes, and it would not always be obvious where a definition had come from.
I have a project I’m working on that requires the use of some extensive XML manipulation.
Next, I create a helper class to access the schema. Schema Access.” The replace will turn that into “Foo. My Schema.xsd” which is what I need to access the schema. Of course, if I’m dealing with multiple schemas, I can add those, too.
Breaking schemas into multiple files can have several advantages.
You can create re-usable definitions that can be used across several projects.
I’m almost always going to want to validate it as a schema set, so instead of having to remember how to parse the manifest and get the resource stream each time, why not do it like this: Instead of hard-coding the path to the schema, I make sure my helper class is at the same level.
The embedded resources are always accessed by the full namespace followed by the file name, so I can simply take the fully qualified name of the current helper class and then replace the class name with the resource name.
