Populating DataSet: (xsd and xml) Or (xml). Difference?

viwufiviwufi Posts: 22Member

(using .net2003)

[code]
DataSet ds = new DataSet();
FileStream fs =
new FileStream( "XML.xml", FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read );
ds.ReadXml( fs );
fs.Close();

foreach( DataRow dr in ds.Tables["user"].Rows )
Console.WriteLine( "name:{0}", dr["name"] );
[/code]

and

[code]
DataSet ds = new DataSet();

FileStream fs =
new FileStream( "schema.xsd", FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read );
ds.ReadXmlSchema( fs );
fs.Close();

fs = new FileStream( "XML.xml", FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read );
ds.ReadXml( fs );
fs.Close();

foreach( DataRow dr in ds.Tables["user"].Rows )
Console.WriteLine( "name:{0}", dr["name"] );
[/code]

What is the difference, because ReadXml method works just fine without first reading the schema?

Thanx,

    Schema explicitly defines the data-types for the columns and such. Not using the schema forces the dataset to make the best guess for the data-types, which might be a wrong assumption.
