Bearable

A small Clojure library that makes writing XML schemas slightly more bearable.

Usage

Bearable adds several new tags to prxml. A good explanation of prxml can be found here.

The new tags available through Bearable are:

  • :ordered-list! -- requires an element to contain an ordered list of elements
  • :unordered-list! -- requires an element to contain an unordered list of elements
  • :choice! -- requires an element to contain one element from a list of elements
  • :restricted! -- requires an elements to meet certain restrictions

Example

Suppose we want to validate the following:

<own3dReply>
  <liveEvent>
    <isLive>false</isLive>
    <liveViewers>4825</liveViewers>
  </liveEvent>
</own3dReply>

We would write the following code:

(use 'bearable.schema)

(def xsd 
 [:xs:schema {:xmlns:xs "http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"}
   [:ordered-list! {:name "own3dreply"}
     [:ordered-list! {:name "liveEvent"}
       [:restricted! {:name "isLive" :base "xs:string"} [:xs:pattern {:value "true|false"}]]
       [:xs:element {:name "liveViewers" :type "xs:integer"}]]]])

(schema xsd "xs" 2)

It would produce the following schema:

<xs:schema xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
  <xs:element name="own3dReply">
    <xs:complexType>
      <xs:sequence>
        <xs:element name="liveEvent">
          <xs:complexType>
            <xs:sequence>
              <xs:element name="isLive">
                <xs:simpleType>
                  <xs:restriction base="xs:string">
                    <xs:pattern value="true|false"/>
                  </xs:restriction>
                </xs:simpleType>
              </xs:element>
              <xs:element name="liveViewers" type="xs:integer"/>
            </xs:sequence>
          </xs:complexType>
        </xs:element>
      </xs:sequence>
    </xs:complexType>
  </xs:element>
</xs:schema>
