   RE: [xml-dev] New tool for handling XML in Java

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Dare - Thanks for pointing that out.  To clarify, the point is that the BEA
XMLBeans architectural approach does allow for 100% compliance with W3C XML
Schema.  As the current release is an early beta, it doesn't yet support the
items listed in secution 3U of the FAQ, but it will do so in later

Are you saying that XMLBeans can represent all the datatypes, structures
and constraints of W3C XML Schema in Java? This seems to conflict with
the FAQ where it states

u. What portions of XML Schema are not supported in the beta release?
The current release of the XMLBeans service does not support:

* Includes, although imports are supported
* Redefine
* Substitution groups
* Key / keyRef / unique constraints

which seems to be a similar list to the section  of W3C XML Schema not
supported by XML Serialization in the .NET Framework[0]


Computers are unreliable, but humans are even more unreliable. Any
system which depends on human reliability is unreliable.
