XML Schema (XSD)
The purpose of an XML Schema is to define the legal or valid structure of an XML document. In our case, this XML document will carry the data required by Corticon Server to execute a specified Decision Service. The XML document described by an XSD is the payload (the data and structure of that data) of a SOAP call to the Corticon Server, or may also be used as the payload of a Java API call or invocation.
XSD, by itself, is only a method for describing payload structure and contents. It is not a protocol that describes how a client or consumer goes about invoking a Decision Service; instead, it describes what the data inside that request must look like.
