[GeoSciML] schematron

Turns out that schematron validator implementation (http://www.schematron.com/implementation.html ) turns out to be just a bunch of XSLT, and you know me, when I hear "XSLT", what I really understand is "Cocoon pipeline".

So I did just that, a dead simple implementation that pick a .sch file from this location : https://www.seegrid.csiro.au/subversion/GeoSciML/branches/3.0.0/schematron/

And an instance document in this one https://www.seegrid.csiro.au/subversion/GeoSciML/branches/3.0.0/instances/

And pipe them together, and lo and behold... it seems to work...

The pipeline invokation is

http://ngwd-bdnes.cits.nrcan.gc.ca/service/schematron/validate/ <schematron file>/ <instance to check>



Question - just to be sure, Am I getting the .sch from the right repo location ?

For the curious mind: cocoon pipeline snippet:

          <!-- pattern = validate/(sch file)/(file to check) -->
          <map:match pattern="validate/*/*">
          <map:generate src="https://www.seegrid.csiro.au/subversion/GeoSciML/branches/3.0.0/instances/{2}.xml"/>
          <map:transform type="saxon" src="cocoon:/gen_xslt/{1}"/>  <!-  get the XSLT from the gen_xslt pipeline below -->
          <map:serialize type="xml"/>

        <!-- this pipeline generates, from the .sch, a XSLT that will perform the validation (so this pipeline generates a XSLT file)-->
        <map:match pattern="gen_xslt/*">
         <map:generate src="https://www.seegrid.csiro.au/subversion/GeoSciML/branches/3.0.0/schematron/{1}.sch"/>
                 <map:transform type="saxon" src="styles/iso_dsdl_include.xsl"/>
                 <map:transform type="saxon" src="styles/iso_abstract_expand.xsl"/>
                 <map:transform type="saxon" src="styles/iso_svrl_for_xslt2.xsl"/>
                 <map:serialize type="xml"/>
