   Re: [xml-dev] Versioning of Enums

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]


some 'at first glance' questions. If these seem a bit dumb, please take them 
as an oppotunity to promote the strengths of this approach :-

1. How does this approach specifically assist in dealing with versioning 
issues ?

2. I see mention of auditability and impact analysis but didn't understand 
how these would be acheived. ?

3. How is this approach 'better' than creating a vocabulary schema for each 
third party contract using the 'chameleon' schema + 
xs:redefines/union/restrition etc. I mentioned earlier (I take the point 
about being able to specify particular contexts in which an enumeration can 
apply - but is there more ?)

4. Large lists are still a problem right ?. It is not unusual in the 
financial services sector for many lists to be > 200 entries, a reasonable 
number to be > 1000 and a few that are >10,000. Using schematon XSLT would 
be a bit impractical wouldn't it ?

4. You mentioned in your earlier response to Glen, that you had hoped in UBL 
to remove ALL embedded enumerations from schema. Did you decide then that no 
enumeration could be considered 'stable' or did you want this just to keep 
the approach consistent regardless ? (you also mention 'type 1' code lists 
which suggest in schema definition ?)
