      An <xsd:import/> instruction for an invalid file name causes the following exception on context initialization:

      at org.apache.ws.commons.schema.XmlSchemaCollection.read(XmlSchemaCollection.java:351)
      at org.apache.ws.commons.schema.SchemaBuilder.resolveXmlSchema(SchemaBuilder.java:1839)
      at org.apache.ws.commons.schema.SchemaBuilder.handleInclude(SchemaBuilder.java:1615)
      at org.apache.ws.commons.schema.SchemaBuilder.handleXmlSchemaElement(SchemaBuilder.java:181)
      at org.apache.ws.commons.schema.SchemaBuilder.build(SchemaBuilder.java:83)
      at org.apache.ws.commons.schema.XmlSchemaCollection.read(XmlSchemaCollection.java:424)
      at org.apache.ws.commons.schema.XmlSchemaCollection.read(XmlSchemaCollection.java:347)
      at org.apache.ws.commons.schema.XmlSchemaCollection.read(XmlSchemaCollection.java:379)
      at org.springframework.xml.xsd.commons.CommonsXsdSchemaCollection.afterPropertiesSet(CommonsXsdSchemaCollection.java:133)

      The root cause is a file not found exception, but it's not at all obvious which XSD caused this, nor what file is missing. (In my case there was a typo in a the import instruction so it was quite hard to spot by just examining the schema files.) I think it's mostly org.apache.ws.commons.schema.XmlSchemaException to blame for not correctly displaying the root cause, but it would be even nicer if CommonsXsdSchemaCollection would trap the exception, report explicitly which XSD resource caused it and re-throw it as a CommonsXsdSchemaException.
