I am seeking for information about conditional XSD validation based on
elements values,but unfortunatly,I could not find a clear answer.Let's
say that I have three XML elements named GROUP,SUB_GROUP and VALUE.How
to validate the VALUE element depending on GROUP and SUB_GROUP values?
Like if GROUP equals 3 and SUB_GROUP equals 4 then VALUE must be a
string enumeration...
Is it possible to perform that with XSD?I have seen some example using
schemapath (XPath conditions),but that does not seem to be
Thank you in advance.
