With that done, type the command “ls” and hit the enter key. This will show you the contents of the Home directory. Over here you can see the test.xml file being displayed over here.
Step 3 – Validation command
xmllint –schema schema.xsd test.xml. Hit the enter key when you are done.
Step 4 – Validation successful
With that done you will see that your xml file has been validated without any errors.
Step 5 – Open xml in text editor
Now let’s go to the home directory and right click on the xml file. Over here, let’s open it with the Text Editor.
Step 6 – Make changes to the xml file
Now let’s make some changes in the xml file over there. For example, you can add a single quote over there and then save the changes made.
Step 7 – Check error
Now let’s type the same command and use the same file which we edited earlier in the text editor.
You will notice that an error has occurred due to the changes that we made earlier. In this manner, you can use the xml validator for xsd files.
