Tools for validating a large XML file against a complex XSD file?
Posted on 2006-07-05
I am in a position where I am frequently needing to validate large (>60Meg) XML files against complex XSD files, and then when validation fails, be able to determine exactly why not and fix the problem ASAP. (The XSD files include other XSD files which include other XSD files - it's a mess!)
XMLSpy worked wonderfully, but my trial period expired and my boss won't buy it for me.
XMLCooktop works reasonably well for small XML files, but is not 100% dependable even in those cases and is next to useless for 50 to 60 Meg files.
I have Visual Studio 6.0 - is there something in there I can use? Would it be reasonably easy to write Visual Basic code to do it?
Are there any other freeware tools or other "tricks of the trade" I can take advantage of?
Appreciating any advice/help,
