NAME

       XML::LibXML::Schema - XML Schema Validation

SYNOPSIS

         use XML::LibXML;
         $doc = XML::LibXML->new->parse_file($url);

         $xmlschema = XML::LibXML::Schema->new( location => $filename_or_url );
         $xmlschema = XML::LibXML::Schema->new( string => $xmlschemastring );
         eval { $xmlschema->validate( $doc ); };

DESCRIPTION

       The XML::LibXML::Schema class is a tiny frontend to libxml2's XML Schema implementation.
       Currently it supports only schema parsing and document validation. As of 2.6.32, libxml2
       only supports decimal types up to 24 digits (the standard requires at least 18).

METHODS

       new
             $xmlschema = XML::LibXML::Schema->new( location => $filename_or_url );
             $xmlschema = XML::LibXML::Schema->new( string => $xmlschemastring );

           The constructor of XML::LibXML::Schema may get called with either one of two
           parameters. The parameter tells the class from which source it should generate a
           validation schema. It is important, that each schema only have a single source.

           The location parameter allows one to parse a schema from the filesystem or a URL.

           The string parameter will parse the schema from the given XML string.

           Note that the constructor will die() if the schema does not meed the constraints of
           the XML Schema specification.

       validate
             eval { $xmlschema->validate( $doc ); };

           This function allows one to validate a (parsed) document against the given XML Schema.
           The argument of this function should be a XML::LibXML::Document object. If this
           function succeeds, it will return 0, otherwise it will die() and report the errors
           found. Because of this validate() should be always evaluated.
