Subject:  Very basic XML Question

I am planning to create a windowsNT based prototype 'proof-of-concept'
EDI-like system for the batch processing of XML files.

For outbound, the plan is to use Mercator as the mapping tool to map data
from a legacy mainframe application into an XML file that complies with a
DTD/Schema that I will define myself and transmit the resulting XML file as
an SMTP plain-text attachment.

For inbound, the plan is to receive the XML data as an SMTP plain-text
attachment, run the data through a validating XML parser to ensure the data
complies with the DTD and then pass it through Mercator to map it into an
appropriate format for loading into the legacy mainframe application.

My question is about the validating XML parser.  I have visited <>  and <>
to identify appropriate parsers (the requirement is to use a major
organisation's offering - i.e. Microsoft, Sun, IBM, Oracle).  I have
downloaded Microsoft's parser, IBM's visualtoolswin, Sun's JAXP 1.0.1.

I naively expected to find an executable that I could incorporate into an
NT script as a command line driven program to take parameters of an input
data file, an input DTD and an output error file, but I didn't find
anything like that.

Can anyone suggest the best way to do what I am trying to achieve?


Kind Regards,
