I’m trying to access xsd in src/main/resources/XYZ/view folder where XYZ/view folder are created by me and folder has abc.xsd which I need for xml validation.
When I try to access the xsd every time I get the result as null,
I have tried as,
@Value(value = "classpath:XYZ/view/abc.xsd") private static Resource dataStructureXSD; InputStream is = dataStructureXSD.getInputStream(); Source schemaSource = new StreamSource(is); Schema schema = factory.newSchema(schemaSource);
Resource resource = new ClassPathResource("abc.xsd"); File file = resource.getFile();
and many more trails I made to get the resource or classloader etc.
Finally I get the xsd with,
File file = new File(new ClassPathResource(“/src/main/resources/XYZ/view/abc.xsd”).getPath()); Schema schema = factory.newSchema(file);
and it is working, I want to know why the other two trails would have gone wrong or why it didn’t work for me and fine for others. 🙁
Or is there other good way of doing it which I’m missing
If you want to load a resource file, use a
@Autowired private ResourceLoader resourceLoader; ... final Resource fileResource = resourceLoader.getResource("classpath:XYZ/view/abc.xsd");
Then you can access the resource with:
