You are right any external references is not checked by marklogic. You have to appended the xml file with doctype declaration
try adding this to you xml file before insertion
<!DOCTYPE article PUBLIC "-//DUMMY//DTD dummy DTD//EN" [
<!ENTITY ldquo "“" >

Subject: [MarkLogic Dev General] Loading an xml document referencing externally defined entities
I'm trying to load an XML document using the XCC library which has reference to entities defined seperately in a .ent file.
The document header has a DTD reference
--- xml doc
<!DOCTYPE TOPIC SYSTEM "lww-five-minute.dtd">
Inside lww-five-minute.dtd is an external entity reference
--- dtd doc
<!ENTITY % xmlspecchars-integrated.ent PUBLIC
"-//LWW//DTD XML Special Characters Module v4.0 20050408//EN"
Then inside xmlspecchars-integrated.ent is entity definitions
<!ENTITY ldquo "“" > <!--=double quotation mark, left, U+201C-->
When I try to load the document using Session.insertContent() I get the following error:
com.marklogic.xcc.exceptions.XQueryException: XDMP-DOCENTITYREF: Invalid entity reference "ldquo" at new5mcc.xml line 28635
I've tried putting the dtd and ent files onto the ML server but no avail.
If I pre-parse the XML with some other XML tool which resolves the entities then put *that* file to ML it works fine.
Any suggestions on how to load an xml document which uses external entity definitions ?
