XML Validations show only in editor area [message #185307] Wed, 20 December 2006 12:19 Go to next message

Hi,

We are using the StructuredTextEditor to display XML content. The
StructuredTextEditor is embedded in a MultiPageEditor. It all works fine and
validations performed by the org.eclipse.wst.xml.core plug-in also work
fine. However, the validation errors are displayed in the editor area only.

Is there an easy and straightforward way to make org.eclipse.wst.xml.core
plug-in to display validation errors in the Problems View as well?

Thanks,
Nikolai

Hi Nikolai,

There are two distinct phases of validation for XML: as-you-type and
manual/build. The first one is invoked when you type in the editor and the
second when you select validate from a file's context menu or automatically
on resource changes if the validation builder is added to a project. If you
use a dynamic web project the validation builder is added to your project on
creation. If you use a simple project (no nature) you can add the builder
using the project's properties page.

For XML, both validation phases make use of the same validation code invoked
by different frameworks. The as-you-type source annotations are produced by
a source validator delegate controlled by notifications from the editor.The
validation errors that show up in the problems view are produced by a
validator registered with the WTP validation framework. Unlike the source
(as-you-type) validation, the manual/build validators are not selected based
on content type, but rather by using a file's extension. For an example,
have a look at the validator registered by the org.eclipse.wst.xml.core
plugin. The extension point for this type of validator is
org.eclipse.wst.validation.validator.

Back to your scenario now: is your XML content saved in a file with an
extension other than XML? In that case I think you can try registering a
validator similar to the XML one, target it to know about your file
extension and either re-using or extending the XML validator code.

I hope this helps.

Regards,
Valentin

Hi Valentin,

Thanks very much for the information. It helped a lot.

Yes, I use different file extensions, not .xml. Following your suggestion I
registered a validator for my file extensions, using the
org.eclipse.wst.validation.validator extension point. I used the Validator
class from org.eclipse.wst.xml.core plug-in. Everything worked fine. I got
the build validation errors displayed in the Problems View together with the
as-you-type errors in the editor area.

Next step is to put a wrapper around the Validator class as I need to
perform some additional validations as well.

Thanks,
Nikolai
