Title: RE: [emergency] update for EDXL DE xsd and Sample xml

Gary et .al


Thank you so much.  I think the example gives a good target message structure.


This means the Schema still needs work.  I was getting warnings in Visual Studio on <namespacedXMLcontent> but though it was an artifact from the inability to resolve the underlying schemas for CAP and UNWD content.  I know this is doable but maybe the attribute for changing namespace has a different construction. I am using the same attribute structure for the <keyXMLContent> and it does not seem to be having problems.


I also, really need a location element in the <contentObject> to identify the location of fixed sensors.  It would also be nice if we could have multiple <values> under a single <valueListURN> which would significantly improve readability and shorten the message length.

I loaded your XSD.  Xray liked it.

I loaded your sample message.  Xray said it was not valid according to your XSD.
I have attached the screen shot.  Offending location was line the end of line 90
or beginning of line 91 ( between the 2 lines exerpted below):


I have a freeware validator, so it might be my validator, but then so do a lot
of other folks.

I have added to my Radiation Example and also done some addition work on the
schema.  I would appreciate everyone with an XML validation tool to examine them
both in detail.  I created them with my Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Beta 2
software.  I used it because the production Visual Studio 2003 will not allow a
<choice> in a <sequence> of elements.  When I used the <group> element it
validated but was obviously an artifact of the older Microsoft software.  I am
also no expert of XML schema and would still like to provide flexibility in the
EDXLDistribution schema for include namespaces for validating <ContentObject>
XML and wrapping the contents of <namespacedXMLcontent> with encryption and
signature capability.

Please review this and let me know what your tools determine.

Subject: [emergency] EDXL DE xsd and Sample xml and latest draft


I'm a bit delayed on sending the full draft due to schema validation issues.  I
think they are resolved in the files sent.

Dave did a great job putting the schema together.  I still had issues with the
<group> element followed by a <choice> in three validation tools.  By removing
the <group> as a wrapper, it 'seems' to have resolved the issue.  I am no expert
on xml schema 'model groups', 'partitions' or the like. We're likely to get
(hopefully constructive) comments on the schema format during review.

In the Specification Draft, Section 3.2: Data Dictionary, Appendix A: Examples
and Appendix B: Schema still need replacing.  I'll do that after a sleep break.

Best Regards,
