This may be slightly off topic for JDOM but I'm hoping its close enough.
I've done the appropriate GOOGLEing for the answer but just can't seem
to figure it out. 
I am trying to implement schema validation BUT my schema is on the file
system, not on a web server. I keep getting an error in the SAX parser,
"no protocol" which I assume means it can't find the schema (this could
be an incorrect assumption but I don't know at this point). Here is my
code. I'm setting the variable, schemaURI, to a URI like
    SAXBuilder builder = new
    builder.setErrorHandler(new MySAXChecker()); 
    // turn on schema support
NamespaceSchemaLocation", schemaURI);
    try {
    catch (JDOMException e) {
      System.out.println("Source xml is not well-formed.");
    catch (IOException e) {
      System.out.println("Could not get source XML: " + e.getMessage());
