XML Schema Definition (XSD)
by Vijay Mukhi, Shruti Gupta, Sonal Mukhi
The XML Schema specifies the properties of a resource, while the XML file stipulates a set of values for these properties. The primary utility of the XML Schema lies in its ability to concede generous amount of autonomy to the programmer to define the rules of data validity; and thereafter, to hand over the responsibility of data validation to the XML validator. This liberates the programmer from the mundane drudgery of the task of data validation.
