Subject: RE: [search-ws] oasis xml namespace names

Well, three points, Ralph.


1. This replaces the info: URIs that have been in these 2.0 schemas. No compatibility there.

2. We cannot continue to use the old "zing" namespace names.  Those names were inappropriately assigned.

3.  If we are standardizing these schemas within OASIS, the rules say we have to use OASIS names.  


With regard to point 3, I'm willing to argue this point with OASIS but only if there is a basis for argument, which so far I can't see.

I’m opposed to this proposal.  It ends all backwards compatibility.

I am going to have to change the namespace names in our schemas, according to OASIS rules.  See below.


I've tentatively changed them to:






Let me know if you see any problems with this. Or if you prefer different (base) names before these are cast in stone.

Hi Ray,


  Actually we require that. All schemas must be included as separate plain text files and those files take precedence over anything incorporated into the specification document.


  What you're going to need is an OASIS http namespace for your schema(s) and to provide an accompanying namespace document (on the docs.oasis-open.org/templates page) that points to all of the resources.


  All OASIS namespaces begin with 

http://docs.oasis-open.org/ns/search-ws/{namespace of your choice}


  Let me know if you have more questions.

Standards are like parachutes: they work best when they're open.

Hi Mary,


I'm not sure who to ask this, perhaps you could forward to or suggest someone appropriate.


Our  SRU document,  the latest draft of which is at:



includes several XML schemas, currently  in Annex D, a normative annex.  And there are normative references to these schemas.


My question is, can these schemas, actually Annex D in its entirety, be non-normative, that is can the schemas be maintained outside of the standard.  I can go into the long details of why, later if you'd like, the short explanation is that it will make life easier.  (But if it is not permissible we can live with that.)
