SYMPTOMS

When you create multiple instances of the XmlValidatingReader class in an application, performance degradation of the application may occur.

CAUSE

Each instance of the XmlValidatingReader class creates a new XmlSchemaCollection object, and the existing collection is added to the new collection object. This uses lots of resources because each instance of the XmlSchemaCollection object in turn creates a synchronized hashtable, a URL resolver, a read/write lock, and a Schema Names object. This might lead to the performance degradation that is mentioned in the "Symptoms" section.
