Subject [SUBMIT] xml validation task
Date Fri, 23 Mar 2001 18:05:59 GMT

Attached is a task that checks xml files are valid (or
only well formed).
The task uses crimson SAX2 parser implementation by default,
but one can specify any SAX1/2 parser if needed :

    <xmlvalidate file="toto.xml"/>

    <xmlvalidate failonerror="no" lenient="yes" warn="yes"
	         classname="org.apache.xerces.parsers.SAXParser" >
        <fileset dir="src" includes="style/*.xsl"/>  

Supported properties/subelements are :

- file/embedded fileset : the file(s) you want to check

- lenient : if true, only check the xml document is well formed
	    (ignored if the specified parser is as SAX1 parser)

- classname : the parser to use. (default: crimson)

- classpathref/embedded classpath : where to find the parser class

- failonerror : try and guess... (default: true)

- warn: if true, log parser warn events

I don't know if the task should be optional or not, feel free
to rename the package if you think it's worth shipping with ant.
