Example-3: Using ZIP Archives

ZIP archives can also be uploaded, and files within a ZIP can be referenced by using the additional-files scheme. For example:

 

additional-files:///mybigarchive.zip%7Czip/biginstance.xml

 

Note:The |zip/ part needs to be URI-escaped as %7Czip/ in order to conform to the URI RFC since the pipe | symbol is not directly allowed. The use of glob patterns (* and ?) is also allowed. So you can use something like this to validate all XML files within the ZIP archive:
{“command”: “xsi”, “args”: [“additional-files:///mybigarchive.zip%7Czip/*.xml”], “options”: {…}}

 

Note:'Content-Disposition: form-data' is also valid, in addition to 'Content-Disposition: attachment'. Since several tools generate form-data as content-disposition, the value form-data is accepted as valid.

In this example, it is assumed that all schema references are relative paths and that all schemas are contained within the zip.

Content-Disposition: form-data; name="msg"

Content-Type: application/json

 

{"command": "xsi", "args": ["additional-files:///Demo.zip%7Czip/*.xml"], "options": {}}

Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="Demo.zip"; name="additional-files"

Content-Type: application/octet-stream

 

Binary content of Demo.zip archive

hmtoggle_plus1Example: Validating XML files in a ZIP archive containing references to external schemas

In this example, the XML files in a ZIP archive are validated using references to an external schema, which is provided in a second ZIP archive.

Content-Disposition: form-data; name="msg"

Content-Type: application/json

 

{"command": "xsi", "args": ["additional-files:///Instances.zip%7Czip/*.xml"], "options": {"user-catalog": "additional-files:///Schemas.zip%7Czip/catalog.xml"}}

 

-----PartBoundary

Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="Instances.zip"; name="additional-files"

Binary content of Instances.zip archive
