Java – how to reference XSD Schema location while parsing XML Doc via SAX Xerces

how to reference XSD Schema location while parsing XML via SAX Xerces?

< ?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?> < com.firma
xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"

>  
< !--  xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="F:\...\myschema_v2.5.xsd"   

Must I reference this element really within the XML Doc??? I hope, not…

I also set it as follows in Java code, which is not elegant, while schema location is fixed(not appropriate for production)
SaxParser.setProperty(
"http://java.sun.com/xml/jaxp/properties/schemaSource",
"F:…\myschema_v2.5.xsd"
);

Best Solution

include the schema in your jar and load it using getResourceAsStream in the following way

reader.setProperty("http://java.sun.com/xml/jaxp/properties/schemaSource", 
  new InputSource(getClass().getResourceAsStream(xsdLocation)));
