Title: [xml-dev] Question on xml namespace

A bit of a controversial question, but here's my take:


Namespaces can act as "collectors" of XML constructs (elements/attributes/datatypes) for some purpose. I say "some" purpose because it is left open to how namespaces are used.


For example, I know of one e-forms product that uses namespaces as a way to route information in a form to multiple systems by using the namespace as a mechanism - that is, all information that was entered into the form into fields that are associated with constructs (in the XML schema "behind" the form) that are in a given namespace (got that so far?) are routed to channel A, which processes information for that "vocabulary".


Hope that helps--

Subject: [xml-dev] Question on xml namespace

Hi All,
 Can somebody tell me the real use of xml namespace in xml domain only.
I know that xml namespace is useful in xsl.
But is there any real use of namespace to represent one xml document.
Can somebody provide some example ?

Thanks in advance,
Rabindra Nath Saha.
