I'm new in this forum.

I have to perform validation of .bpmn files with xml schema or in other way.

How can I do this?

I run this code:

	try {
      // define the type of schema - we use W3C:
      String schemaLang = "";

      // get validation driver:
      SchemaFactory factory = SchemaFactory.newInstance(schemaLang);

      // create schema by reading it from an XSD file:
      Schema schema = factory.newSchema(new StreamSource(new File("bpmnXMI.xsd")));
      Validator validator = schema.newValidator();

      // at last perform validation:
      validator.validate(new StreamSource(new File("bpmnModelTest.bpmn")));
    }catch (SAXException ex) {
    } catch (Exception ex) {

and this is the result:

org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: cvc-complex-type.3.2.2: Attribute 'xmi:version' is not allowed to appear in element 'bpmn:BpmnDiagram'.

I generate "bpmnXMI.xsd" from the "bpmn.genmodel" by the command "Generator -> Export Model" and selecting "XML schema for XMI"

1. Go ahead and use XMLUnit for your XML validation needs. It works well for me.

2. Not sure what you are trying to do - this bpmnXMI.xsd doesn't match the bpmn.xsd file name we use in the bpmn modeler.
