Hi Ed and all,

I would like to know, what's the best way in retrieving facets. I noticed
a thread saying that we should use getFacetContents but which one should I
use in order to easily retrieve the facets, faster and better. Is it using
SimpleTypeDefinition or TypeDefinition directly?

I have something like this:
<!-- xsd snippet starts here -->
<xsd:complexType name="orderType">
<xsd:sequence>
<xsd:element name="noOfOrder" minOccurs="0" type="xsd:integer"/>
</xsd:sequence>
</xsd:complexType>
<!-- xsd snippet ends here -->

//java code starts here
XSDParticle particle = (XSDParticle)obj;
XSDElementDeclaration element = (XSDElementDeclaration)
particle.getContent();

if(null != element.getTypeDefinition()) {
XSDTypeDefinition typeDef = element.getTypeDefinition();
XSDSimpleTypeDefinition simpleTypeDef = null;

if(null != typeDef.getSimpleType()) {
simpleTypeDef = typeDef.getSimpleType();
// this is the question:
//should I use this simpleTypeDef here???? or is there any simpler
solution
}

}

Thanks.
~Nazir~

It really comes down to what you want them for... More likely you want
to use getFacets to get all the facets of all the type hierarchy merged
nicely to give the ones that are applicable...

Yes, you should use the simple type definition. They're the only things
with facets.

Thanks for the quick response, Ed.

Just another one, I noticed that when I was trying to get this using
simpleType:
<xsd:element name="noOfOrder" minOccurs="0" type="xsd:integer"/>
it kinda gave me these facets:
fractionDigits='0', pattern='[\-+]?[0-9]+'

Any idea why I got these facets?
Thanks again.

Yes. The xsd:integer type is defined in the XMLSchema.xsd and it's
definition there, along with the definitions of the rest of the type up
its type hierarchy define these facets.

Ed,

In this case, even though I didn't specify any of my facets related to
this integer, getFacetContents will always get the defined facets in
XMLSchema.xsd? I bet other types too right?

Zillion thanks again,
~Nazir~

Nazir,

The getFacets method returns the facets accumulated from the entire type
hierarchy including the part that's in the XMLSchema.xsd; these are the
facets that apply for any instance of that type. The getFacetContents
returns only the facets defined exactly on the specific type you're on.
