Subject: Re: [xacml-comment] Public review comments for xacml-json-http-v1.0-csprd03: 5.2.5 The StatusCode object representation

Hi Glenn,

I think you are wrong. I took the wording verbatim from the core XACML spec which says that StatusCode does contain a sequence of StatusCode.

Am I missing the point?


5.55 Element <StatusCode>

The <StatusCode> element contains a major status code value and an optional sequence of minor status codes.

<xs:element name="StatusCode" type="xacml:StatusCodeType"/>

<xs:complexType name="StatusCodeType">


          <xs:element ref="xacml:StatusCode" minOccurs="0"/>


   <xs:attribute name="Value" type="xs:anyURI" use="required"/>


The <StatusCode> element is of StatusCodeType complex type.

The <StatusCode> element contains the following attributes and elements:

Value [Required]

See Section B.8 for a list of values.

<StatusCode> [Any Number]

Minor status code.  This status code qualifies its parent status code.

The statement that

            “.. the StatusCode object may contain a sequence of StatusCode objects..”

is confusing because a StatusCode may contain only one child StatusCode.  This may be a correct statement in an XML definition, but in general use the term “sequence” means a series, list, or array of multiple objects, so can be read as saying that the StatusCode can contain an array of StatusCodes.

It would be better to change this text to read

            “.. the StatusCode object may contain a StatusCode object..”
