  1. OMG Issue

CDSS — DSS: single targetNamespace ""

  • Key: CDSS-1
  • Legacy Issue Number: 14856
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Fujitsu ( Tom Rutt)
  • Summary:

    A single targetNamespace "" is used in all of the following
    machine readable files for the DSS submission:

    wsdl file dss_minimum_functional_profile.wsdl (subset of full set of operations)
    wsdl file dss_core_functional_profile.wsdl (subset of full set of operations)
    wsdl file dss.wsdl (full set of operations)

    xsd file HsspDssSchema.xsd (xs:include in wsdl:types element of each wsdl file)

    The common wsdl:message definitions are repeated in each of the three wsdl files. This will cause a maintenance headache. These should be pulled out into a separate wsdl file which can be referenced by a wsdl:import into each of the three wsdl files above.

    Is it necessary to keep the same namespace for both the schema and wsdl? It might be easier for ongoing maintenance to give the schema a different target namespace from the wsdl descriptions. This is a design decision that the FTF should consider.

    Of greater significance, the targetNamespace used is not an OMG rooted namespace.

    Solution proposed by originator:

    The FTF should use OMG rooted namespaces, as opposed to continuing to use rooted namespaces?

    Rather than using urn values for namespaces, the OMG has recommended strongly, the
    use of URLs which resolve to a RDDL file which has pointers to the
    wsdl and/or schema files which define that namespace?

  • Disposition: Resolved — CDSS 1.0
  • Disposition Summary:

    The recommended changes have been made. Specifically:

    • The common WSDL definitions have been pulled into a new WSDL
      (dssBaseComponents.wsdl). This WSDL is then referenced through a
      wsdl:import into each of the WSDLs that correspond to the
      conformance profiles.
    • The namespaces for the schemas and WSDLs have been separated.
    • The targetNamespace has been changed to be an OMG rooted
    • For the namespaces, URLs that resolve to a RDDL which has pointers
      to the relevant WSDLs and XSDs are now provided, as described in
      the document authored by Tom Rutt on this topic, obtained form
