Hi all!

I have 2 questions:

1) how can I apply a XML Schema to an XML fragment obtained through an HTML form?
the XML schema covers only that form fields (is a proper schema to validate a record of a simple xml database)

2) how can I add a new record of my database? I input the fields through an HTML form and I must add my record to my database. The XML database is like this:

<database>
<record id="1">
...
</record>
<record id="2">
...
</record>
<record id="3">
...
</record>
<record id="4">
...
</record>
</database>

my html form "fills" the record fields, that must be validated with a given (and proper) xml schema. I must add the "record" tag, with the counter attribute "id".

I'm using Tomcat, Xerces and many other XML/Java related technologies...
I appreciate any suggestion, tip or anything that help me to understand how to do and what is the best way to do this job!

Thank you in advance.
