It is convenient to think of WAS configuration as a giant DOM tree. The main trunk of that tree is IBM proprietary and very thin. The major sections of that DOM tree show up as XML files in the configuration repository. Many of those XML files have schemas. Thus, there is a grammar that can be used to decide if the configuration entries are grammatically correct.

Validation options:

getValidationLevel setValidationLevel

Defualt value is HIGHEST. Probably should not be changed.

getCrossDocumentValidationEnabled setCrossDocumentValidationEnabled

Default value is true. Probably should not be changed.

getValidationOutput setValidationOutput

Can be set to any fully qualified file name as long as WAS has permission to write there.

With the possible exception of the name of the file that holds the validation results, you will probably never change these settings. You can also change these settings by editing
