BPMN2 — [XSD] Documentation and ScriptTask (and probably expressions) should be stored as CData elements and not String attribut

  • Key: BPMN2-177
  • Legacy Issue Number: 14733
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Object Management Group ( Mariano Benitez)
  • Summary:

    Documentation and the scripts are formatted text, we should keep the format (spaces, tabs) that the user defined.

    Storing formatted text as string attributes makes it impossible to do so, since it turns the attributes quite big and looses the format.

    It would be better if we store any formatted text as a CDATA element, so we can easily keep the format.

    Proposal: change the XSD for documentation, script task and formal expressions to use a CDATA element instead of a string attribute.
