Quiz

1.

What file extension is used to identify XSD schema documents?

2.

What two primary attributes are used with the xsd:element element to describe an element in an XSD schema?

3.

What simple type would you use to represent a recurring monthly bill in an XSD schema?

4.

How do you control how many times an element may appear within an XSD schema?

Quiz Answers

1.

XSD schema documents are stored with a file extension of .xsd.

2.

The two primary attributes used with the xsd:element element to describe an element in an XSD schema are name and type.

3.

Both the xsd:recurringDate and xsd:recurringDay types are sufficient to store the date of a recurring monthly bill. The xsd:recurringDate type would be better if you cared about knowing the month of the bill, whereas the xsd:recurringDay type would work fine if you were interested only in the day of the month.

4.

The xsd:minOccurs and xsd:maxOccurs attributes allow you to control how many times an element appears within an XSD schema.
