This job entry performs an XSD validation against data in a file or in an input field.
XSD is short for XML Schema Definition.  For more information, see here:

As such, there are 2 entities at work here:

  1. The XML you want to validate the layout for
  2. The XSD (Schema) file that describes what the XML file should look like.

See also the XSD Validator step.

Note : This name has to be unique in a single job. A job entry can be placed several times on the canvas, however it will be the same job entry.

    I was wondering why this job entry doesn't allow for the xml filename input from a parents result stream.  I need to dynamically pass this job entry XML files from a parent job, for validation by a static XSD.  Is there an alternative job entry?
