I have gone through the
latest XML NameSpaces Draft , but I have not been able to figure out the
complete behaviour of XML NameSpace software and so the ques.
I am confused as to how XML NameSpace aware processors would process:-
- Nameprefixes present in XML files (eg. <edi:Segment>)
Looking at the "xmlns" attribute value (the NameSpace Name) it is
difficult to say what it signifies.eg.
* xmlns:validate #FIXED "http://www.org/directory"
- points to a directory of
say validating programs, let's say a set of DLLs.
How would an XML NS processor know what each NameSpace Name points
there some kind of hardcoding done in the processor which tells it what each
NameSpace Name means?
What happens when an element name prefixed with a NS prefix is encountered? How
does the XML NS processor process such names?
Let's say I have an xml file :-
Let's also assume that http://www.my.org/checkdirectory
points to a directory of validating dlls, one of which is Alpha.dll which
<ContentCheck:Alpha> is supposed to refer to.
2) I being the author of my XML file know that http://www.my.org/checkdirectory
refers to a directory of validating programs, but how the XML NS processor know
Thanks in advance for any answers,
