Attached is an edited version of the errata web page.

Yes, this sounds good.  I would prefer we use the redirector if this will
work
with the implementors.

Doug/Chris/Arvola, would you look at the Errata item I put on the previous
message and edit as necessary to accomplish what is indicated here?

David.

Subject: RE: [ebxml-msg] envelope.xsd


I support publishing an errata indicating that the schemas for the SOAP
Envelope and ebMS namespaces are directly resolvable from their namespace
URLs, and that the use of the xsi:schemaLocation attributes for these
namespaces in instance documents are allowable but not strictly necessary.
We MUST also update msg-header-2_0c to import the SOAP namespace from the
official SOAP schema location.

We should remove xml_lang.xsd and xmldsig-core-schema.xsd and earlier drafts
of the ebMS schema from the TC web site. I am ambivalent about what we
should do with envelope.xsd on the TC web site. Replacing it with the
redirector that David has crafted or just leaving the existing copy there is
fine with me.

The problem is procedural.  I agree with all of you, but this is not just
one
change.  We need to update every example in the spec along with all the
changes
suggested by Doug/Chris.

We have already voted.

This is not worth a 3 month schedule slip when we can do something as simple
as
a redirector.  We can fix this in the next version.  In the mean time, let's
just put a note in the errata file that there is no longer a need to point
to
oasis-open.org/.../envelope.xsd.  We need something in there anyway to show
it
is not blank (BTW, the errata page points to rev_B).

David.

David:

I tried your version of envelope.xsd (which is simply a redirector) and it
worked for me.

What I did was to make a local copy of your envelope.xsd, modify a local
copy of msg-header-2_0.xsd to import from the SOAP Envelope namespace using
the locally cached copy of envelope.xsd (the redirector), and then open up
msg-header-2_0.xsd using XML Authority. No error was reported.

But the fundamental disagreement between you and Doug (or Chris) is that you
want to leave msg-header-2_0.xsd unchanged (still using the TC web site as
the imported schema location) whereas Doug and Chris (and I concur with
them) that the imported schema location should be the same as the SOAP
Envelope namespace URI.

I support Doug's suggestions for changes, provided the implementers are OK
with updating their software to import the official schema for the SOAP
Envelope namespace.

As I was reading Doug's message, his discussion made me wonder...
Could we put something in this place which was a simple redirector
to the normative SOAP envelope?

I am not a schema expert so someone please tell me how to do this.
Would the attached schema work?

Doug:

The schema posted by David for the 2_0c package that we voted on indicates:

	<import namespace="http://www.w3.org/2000/09/xmldsig#"
schemaLocation="http://www.w3.org/TR/xmldsig-core/xmldsig-core-schema.xsd"/>
	<import namespace="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink"
schemaLocation="http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/ebxml-msg/schema/xlink.
xsd"/>
	<import namespace="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/"
schemaLocation="http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/ebxml-msg/schema/envelo
pe.xsd"/>
	<import namespace="http://www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespace"
schemaLocation="http://www.w3.org/2001/03/xml.xsd"/>

That is, we are no longer referring to the xml_lang.xsd and
xmldsig-core-schema.xsd we have on the TC web site. I would recommend that
Ian remove the above two files from the web site.

Whether envelope.xsd should be removed from the TC web site depends on the
outcome of the current thread of discussion.

Subject: Re: [ebxml-msg] envelope.xsd


Since my name has appeared a few times in this thread attached to opinions I
didn't
intend to express, thought I'd chime in.

First, I intended to suggest exactly what Chris put into words.  We agreed
during a
recent teleconference not to remove all of 2.3.2 because we couldn't ignore
the real
possibility developers would include the schemaLocation attribute and point
to various
XSD documents for each and every namespace we define or that must appear in
an ebXML
Message (I think that's just our schema and SOAP's).  As we've been
discussing for
quite some time now, we also should not be even strongly recommending a
non-normative
XSD instance when discussing the SOAP namespace.

I can also understand a potential problem for implementations if we
completely remove
our current envelope.xsd file.  The removal of one or two lines when sending
ebXML
Message instances must be balanced against those instance documents not
making use of
the normative SOAP schema.  We have been working to define ebXML Messaging
as a valid
extension set for SOAP, not a protocol that uses "something like" SOAP.

Going a bit further, we can't "just" fill our envelope.xsd file with the
contents from
schemas.xmlsoap.org.  That schema instance has not been submitted to our
group nor
have we (or can we) changed the copyrights to say "OASIS" in that document.

I would suggest
1) making the changes to 2.3.2 Chris has suggested.  I might go one step
further and
change "strongly RECOMMENDED" to "MAY" on line 625 because the SOAP schema
location
matches the namespace identifier.  The "Failure to include the
schemaLocation
attribute could prevent XML schema validation of received messages."
sentence on lines
627-8 is also strong for this reason.

2) cleaning up the http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/ebxml-msg/schema/
directory to
remove any XSD instances no longer correct or necessary.  At the moment,
this would
mean removing envelope.xsd and xml_lang.xsd.  I'm not going to be the only
person who
lists this directory and others may be confused by the inclusion of these
files.

3) correct our schema instance's <import /> elements to reference the right
location
for the SOAP envelope namespace:

  <import namespace="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/"
schemaLocation="http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/ebxml-msg/schema/envelo
pe.xsd" />

becomes

  <import namespace="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/"
schemaLocation="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" />

4) dredging up our discussion of the XML dsig namespace to remind us all if
anyone
found a XML Schema Recommendation - compliant version of that XSD instance.
In other
words, can the <import /> below point to some normative location?  If so,
making
similar changes (as in 2 and 3 above) to use this normative XSD instance.
Sorry, I
don't remember the result of this part of that long thread.  I only recall
that our
xlink.xsd file is as good as it gets.

<import namespace="http://www.w3.org/2000/09/xmldsig#"
schemaLocation="http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/ebxml-msg/schema/xmldsi
g-core-schema.xsd"
/>

thanx,
    doug

Title: OASIS-OPEN ebXML-Messaging v2

OASIS-OPEN ebXML-Messaging v2.0 Errata

 

3/01/02

1.       The schemas for the SOAP namespace http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/ and for the ebMS namespace http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/ebxml-msg/schema/msg-header-2_0.xsd are directly resolvable from their corresponding namespace URIs. Therefore, the use of the xsi:schemaLocation attribute to specify the locations for these namespaces is NOT REQUIRED. Such usages are to be removed from all examples included in the specification.

2.       For schema processors that are dependent on explicit schema location information, the xsi:schemaLocation attribute MAY still be used. For example:

<SOAP:Envelope xmlns:SOAP="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/"

xmlns:eb="http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/ebxml-msg/schema/msg-header-2_0.xsd"

xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"

xsi:schemaLocation="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/

http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope.xsd

http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/ebxml-msg/schema/msg-header-2_0.xsd

http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/ebxml-msg/schema/msg-header-2_0.xsd">

<SOAP:Header>

<eb:MessageHeader ...>

...

</eb:MessageHeader>

</SOAP:Header>

<SOAP:Body>

<eb:Manifest ...>

...

</eb:Manifest>

</SOAP:Body>

</SOAP:Envelope>

3.       To accommodate existing implementations that are pointing to the alternate url:

http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/ebxml-msg/schema/envelope.xsd

the above schema has been replaced with a redirector schema pointing to the official W3C SOAP schema url:

http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/
