ValidateXMLFile

Validates the given XML file against the given xsd schema definition and returns a status reporting the results of the validation.

  • If the validation operation executes with no process error, regardless of whether or not the XML file is valid, the pipelet returns next.
  • If the given XMLfile or xsd schema file don't exist in the given path, the pipelet exits in a pipelet error.
  • The status contains the status of the validation.

The result of any Salesforce B2C Commerce import operations (via a pipelet) is represented by the Status output property. The pipelet returns to the error connector if a process error occurs when executing the import. A process error prevents or interrupts the basic execution of the import. An example of a process error is when the specified import file doesn't exist on the file system. Client code should consult Status object details to determine if there were any problems importing the individual data within the import file.
