Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Updated: (ODATA-236) Define maximum length of namespace names and simple identifiers

     [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/ODATA-236?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel ]

Ralf Handl updated ODATA-236:

    Proposal: Restrict length of SimpleIdentifier to 30 and QualifiedName to 300 (or 309 to account for the dots :-)  (was: Remove the length restriction because we don't want to accommodate all programming languages anyway (ABAP's limit is thirty :-))

>                 Key: ODATA-236
>                 URL: http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/ODATA-236
>             Project: OASIS Open Data Protocol (OData) TC
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: OData CSDL v1.0
>    Affects Versions: V4.0_WD01
>         Environment: [Proposed]
>            Reporter: Ralf Handl
>            Priority: Blocker
>             Fix For: V4.0_WD01
> Currently the prose specification defines no limit for namespace names, and the CSDL schema definition limits them to 512 characters.
> Both the prose spec and the schema limit simple identifiers to 479 characters.
> Apparently the C# compiler accepts only 511 characters for both variable names and namespace names, so 512 is too long for namespaces, and 479 is oddly short for a simple identifier.
> JavaScript on the other hand has no limit for variable names.
