Subject: Re: [search-ws] recordPacking: No Schema Change Required


Schema is just for SRU/XML. Only logical effect of this value on SRU/XML -
if ever used with SRU/XML - would be to trash the record data. No schema
change required.

This parameter value is primarily intended for operation with extension
formats, or host formats. A draft extension to ATOM was published on the TC
site earlier (July 16)  [1,2]. We have taken that work and expanded on it
(July 23) to include support for RSS and JSON as a direct ATOM mapping [3].

There is no whiff of XML schema here in any of these formats. And no change
to any XML schema is required.

Is there any reason not to allow for an SRU response to be hosted by an
extension format? That is all I am attempting, while making it easier for
OpenSearch applications to get at the data.

One could say that these OpenSearch responses were SRU compliant.

I'm feeling pretty dense too. This just seems to be so obvious. :)
