[Mono-dev] coda on bug in xsd.exe

Atsushi, Lluis,

In the original schema i sent i used a recursive group style specification
(as the schema specified the abstract syntax of a language). This style
eliminates replication of choice statements throughout the schema. i finally
got the chance to run the schema through xsd.exe on .net and it complained
bitterly regarding the recursive groups, but did not fall over. So, there is
a difference in the implementations between mono and .net there. After
producing a schema that removed the recursive groups by in-lining all the
choice statements, xsd.exe on .net simply falls over on the new schema with
an attempt to access something from null. i will proceed to see what happens
with the non-recursive group style specification on the mono-flavor of
xsd.exe and report my results, as this may be of general interest to mono

Best wishes,

Mono's XML serialization engine, as well as .NET, does not support
all valid schemas. Actually it works under pretty much constrained
situation. Sadly there is no documentation on how it does *not* work.

I once blogged one example I know:
