I have a problem with extending a complexType with an attribute group.
The following types are defined:
<xs:choice minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded">
<xs:element name="source" type="element1"/>
<xs:element name="value" type="element2"/>
This is part of a very large schema. When validating this schema, I get
the following error message for the type B: "The basetype has
'elementOnly' content so this extended type must also".
And indeed, when I look at the contentTypeCategory of B, it has "emtpy"
while A has a contentTypeCategory of "elementOnly". Until now I failed
to reduce the large schema to a minimal schema reproducing the problem.
Because when I reduce it only to those definition (including the
referenced definitions), the contentTypeCategory of B is also
"elementOnly", so that the error doesn't occur. Probably you have any
idea, why the contentTypeCategory of B may become "empty" sometimes?
I got the problem using XSD 2.1. Until now I had no time to test it with
more recent versions of XSD.
