Clearly, there is still some work to be done in order to make schema validation the norm for Web services. But still, I am having a problem with the validation, using the schema that come inside of my web-service wsdl. Basically it was caused by a behaviour that associates first element with wrong namespace.

He loads all the schemas that are imported, but the elements that are declared inside my wsdl, he refuses to find: sax. Hey Daniel, We are having a very similar problem using XFire validation. After applying JAXWSProfile, the schema validation started working as shown above.
An alternative mechanism that could be more convenient when binding Java classes to Schema is to initialize JAXBContext by passing JAXB-annotated class objects.
The classes specified as parameters to new Instance and all classes that are directly/indirectly referenced statically from the specified classes are included into the returned JAXBContext instance.
From what I understand, however, this does not enable validation, it just tells XFire to use your schema as part of the generated WSDL (in response to "? So I actually had to develop a simple handler to enable it: Another problem that I encountered was that validation exceptions don't reach the client, instead the client receives meaningless "Can't unmarshal" exception.The scalar datatypes of the XML Schema Language are mapped to Java data types.JAXB uses Java's annotations for augmenting the generated classes with additional information that bridges the gap between what is decribed by an XML schema and the information available (via Java's reflection mechanisms) from a set of Java class definitions.On one hand, relying on JAXB allows us to easily handle both "wrapped" and "bare" Web service styles. On the other hand, very often with Web services there is a need to be able to process XML without reading it into objects, so, chances are, JAXB won't be used in all cases.Also, non-JAXB approach provides for more sophisticated error handling using custom error handlers that can be used in conjunction with the validation framework.
