Subject: RE: [wsrp-wsia] [I#165] The Consumer should not strip the namespa ceprefix from f orm parameters

Hi Gil.

I think that you are right, encoding of the parameter names in a form is
not necessary. However we will need to namespace the form name. The
paragraph on stripping the namespace from that name when making a WSRP call
still holds true.

Another point to note is that HTML/XHTML does not require uniqueness of
form control names across the HTML. This is because the deciding attribute
for form controls is "name", which does not have to be unique, and not
"id", which does (see
http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/interact/forms.html#h-17.2). Thus, Producers
doesn't need to prefix anything to form names, and thus it is pointless for
the Consumer to strip namespaces. We should also stress this fact in the

      Issue: 165
      Status: Active
      Topic: interface
      Class: Technical
      Raised by: Gil Tayar
      Title: The Consumer should not strip the namespace prefix from form
      Date Added: 1-Dec-2002
      Document Section:   v0.85/9.3
      "Quoting from the spec: ""If namespace encoding is used for form
      parameters or other data the entity receives as in markupParams, then
      the Consumer MUST strip the namespace prefix from the parameter names
      before passing them to the Producer"".
      believe the Consumer should not do this for two reasons:
      1. It now means that the Consumer has to understand the uploadData
      and recognize one of the mime types, specifically
      application/x-www-form-urlencoded. This is definitely not generic.
      2. The Producer will anyway have to understand namespace prefixing,
      including using it in JavaScript client code, so its not that big of
      a chore for the Producer to do this (for example, by adding another
      form parameter which includes the prefix code)."
