   FW: [xml-dev] Schema Namespace name, schemaLocation, and Schema V ersion

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Eric - Very interesting. 

And the follow-ups are interesting, too...

David Carlisle points out what Jeni mentioned - that namespace changes can
be quite messy:


	http://lists.xml.org/archives/xml-dev/200103/msg01021.html and

the COM solution mirror's Jeni's "proper version" suggestion. But that only
seems to apply to the schemaLocation (not namespace name), unless you keep
separate schema versions with different namespace names - yuck.

For what's worth, a link on the policy I am using for XSLTunit and
Examplotron (quite similar to what's been discussed here):
Also, the main downside I have found for version attribute is for
vocabularies which are "embedded". Where would you locate a version
attribute for XLink or RSS in a document for instance? ...
Hope this helps.
See you in San Diego.
