Altova RaptorXML Server 2020

The valavro | avro command validates the data block in one or more Avro binary files against the respective Avro schemas in each binary file.


raptorxml valavro | avro [options] AvroBinaryFile


The AvroBinaryFile argument specifies one or more Avro binary files to validate. Specifically, the data block in each Avro binary file is validated against the Avro schema in that binary file.

To validate multiple Avro binaries, either: (i) list the files to be validated on the CLI, with each file separated from the next by a space; or (ii) list the files to be validated in a text file (.txt file), with one filename per line, and supply this text file as the AvroBinaryFile argument together with the --listfile option set to true (see the Options list below).



Examples of the valavro command:


raptorxml valavro c:\MyAvroBinary.avro

raptorxml valavro c:\MyAvroBinary01.avro c:\MyAvroBinary02.avro

raptorxml avro--listfile=true c:\MyFileList.txt




Options are listed in short form (if available) and long form. You can use one or two dashes for both short and long forms. An option may or may not take a value. If it takes a value, it is written like this: --option=value. Values can be specified without quotes except in two cases: (i) when the value string contains spaces, or (ii) when explicitly stated in the description of the option that quotes are required. If an option takes a Boolean value and no value is specified, then the option's default value is TRUE. Use the --h, --help option to display information about the command.
