I have added a new program to be downloaded for free from http://www.eliasen.eu/DownloadSoftware.aspx.
This time it is a program to help you do two things:
- Check an XML file to see if it is well formed
- Validate an XML file against an XSD schema
I have had the need for a small utility to do this several times, in case a customer
has some XML, and they want to know if the XML is even valid. The check for well formed-ness
can be done by simply opening the file in Internet Explorer, but that is just soooo
slow for large files. I tried a 70MB XML file once. It took IE a couple of hours to
open it and tell me what was wrong with the XML. My utility did it in a few seconds.
So, use it if you want…
