Bugs in ebXML Registry specs
Andrzej responds: I'm not sure you should be so quick to judge this a bug/mistake. I can see many scenarios where it would be very convenient to be able to create objects where you specify only the lid and have the registry generate the unique id (uuid). We have a number of those in the project I'm working on. I think it's a valuable feature and that the spec is correct as written. If the application doesn't care what the id is, why should we have to specify it, when the registry can easily generate a unique UUID on our behalf? This doesn't make any sense to me. From a practical users perspective I vote a strong -1 on making this a bug! And +1 one on changing the implementation to suit the spec. I think the implementation is incorrect and the spec is just fine. Andrzej's argument makes sense (Nikola), but question is what to do with the rim.xsd as "id" is required under "IdentifiableType".
