Altova RaptorXML Server 2024

The valxsd | xsd command validates one or more XML Schema documents (XSD documents) according to the W3C XML Schema Definition Language (XSD) 1.0 or 1.1 specification. Note that it is the schema itself that is validated against the XML Schema specification, not an XML instance document against an XML Schema.


raptorxml valxsd | xsd [options] InputFile


The InputFile argument is the XML Schema document to validate. The --xsd-version=1.0|1.1|detect option specifies the XSD version to validate against, with the default being 1.0.

To validate multiple documents, 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 InputFile argument together with the --listfile option set to true (see the Options list below).



Examples of the valxsd command:


raptorxml valxsd c:\Test.xsd

raptorxml xsd --verbose=true c:\Test.xsd

raptorxml xsd --listfile=true c:\FileList.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.
