I've been looking for a way to validate whether a value (not its lexical
representation!) is contained in the value space of a type. I had a look at
the interface definitions and saw the method
XSDConstrainingFacet.isConstraintSatisfied(Object value) which seems to be
made for this purpose.

I'm trying to run this source code:


boolean result = true;
XSDEnumerationFacet enumeration = type2.getEffectiveEnumerationFacet();
for (Iterator i = enumeration.getValue().iterator(); i.hasNext();) {
Object value =;
for (Iterator j = type1.getFacets().iterator(); j.hasNext();) {
XSDConstrainingFacet facet = (XSDConstrainingFacet);
result = result && facet.isConstraintSatisfied(value);


But now I'm discovering problems: For XSDWhiteSpaceFacet instances the
method always returns false (which I didn't expect) and for XSDPatternFacets
always a ClassCastExcpetion is thrown if I pass for example a BigDecimal as
the value. I inserted the source code from below.

public boolean isConstraintSatisfied(Object value)
for (Iterator thePatterns = getPatterns(false).iterator();
thePatterns.hasNext(); )
RegularExpression pattern = (RegularExpression);
// In this if-condition a ClassCastException is thrown
if (!pattern.matches((String)value))
return false;
return true;


I think one possible solution would be to use "value.toString()" instead of
"(String)value" or to return false if the object isn't a String.
