I have been working to incorporate MSV in code to perform a simple function: determining that a given XML Schema document is both well-formed and conforming to the W3C recommendation. I need to report the message, line number, and column number for any and all errors. I wish to emphasize as well that in this case I have no need for validating XML instance documents against schemas.

The following is representative of the code I am using:

        try {

               factory = VerifierFactory.newInstance("http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" );
         catch(SAXParseException e) {
            errors.add(e); //errors is a Collection
         catch(Exception e) {
            //Do something

With this code, multiple errors are not being captured--just the first one. Is there a more effective and complete way for testing an XML Schema document for well-formedness and validity?

Thank you very much for any help you can provide.
