   Re: ASN.1 is an XML Schema Language (Fix those list s!)and Binary XMLnot

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

How would you specify an XER encoding to XMI (http://www.omg.
org/technology/documents/formal/xmi.htm)? For example, an instance of the example 
PersonnelRecord at http://asn1.elibel.tm.fr/en/xml/ASN1-as-an-XML-schema-notation.
htm could be encoded in XMI as:

<PersonnelRecord dateOfHire="19710917">
     <Name givenName="Mary" initial="T" familyName="Smith"/>
    <ChildInformation dateOfBirth="19571111">
        <Name givenName="Ralph" initial="T" familyName="Smith"/>
      <Name givenName="Susan" initial="B">

The XMI encoding allows MOF-attributes to be either XML-attributes or XML-child 
elements whose tagnames use a dot notation; normally you produce one form but you 
have to read either. Would there be XER rules that map this encoding to and from 
the example ASN.1 type definition?
