And my input schema accepts the xml which is similar to the above xml except it does not have <Age> and <DOB> tags in it. which means that the <Age> and <DOB> tags are extra tags in my input xml which is not required by the input schema.
Question: is it possible in biztalk to accept the above xml as it is (i.e. along with <Age> and <DOB> tags) to populate the schema which accepts all xml except <Age> and <DOB> tags?
Can it just pick up the required tags and populate the input schema?
You have to change your schema to set the "Min Occurs" property to value of 0 for the two elements Age and DOB, so that the receive port will accept your sample input XML without any instance of those two elements present in the contents.
