Sample Instance Documents

These examples have been verified against v1.0r9 using Xerces. To verify, place VOResource-v1.0.xsd into the same directory as instance document.

Sample Java Classes

As a further test, Java classes for this schema were successfully generated using Axis' wsdl2java; the results can be found in VOResourceJava-r7.zip.
