Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Created: (OBIX-162) 17 Conformance

17 Conformance

                 Key: OBIX-162
                 URL: http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OBIX-162
             Project: OASIS Open Building Information Exchange (oBIX) TC
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: OBIX 1.1 Specification
    Affects Versions: OBIX 1.1 XSD PR02
         Environment: TAB Review
            Reporter: Toby Considine
            Assignee: Toby Considine
            Priority: Critical

"17 Conformance reads in part: 

An implementation is conformant with this specification if it satisfies all of the MUST and REQUIRED level requirements defined herein for the functions implemented. Normative text within this specification takes precedence over normative outlines, which in turn take precedence over the XML Schema and WSDL descriptions, which in turn take precedence over examples. 

Possibly my mis-reading but this prose appears to contradict the statements in 1.6 that read in part: 

All sections explicitly noted as examples are informational and SHALL NOT be considered normative. 

All UML and figures are illustrative and SHALL NOT be considered normative. 

I read this prose in 17 as making examples, UML and figures normative. Yes? 

BTW, the conformance clause does not mention http://docs.oasis-open.org/obix/obix/v1.1/csprd02/schemas/obix-v1.1.xsd 

The TC Process, https://www.oasis-open.org/policies-guidelines/tc-process, provides at (7a) third unnumbered bullet point that: 

Where any definition in these separate files disagrees with the definition found in the specification, the definition in the separate file prevails. 

I realize that your ""...take precedence over the XML Schema and WSDL descriptions"" does not contradict that rule but it would be best to include the separate computer files (the XML schema and the RDDL file) as part of the conformance clause. Just to remove any ambiguity."
