CWM12 — XML metamodel should be based on W3C XML Information Set

  • Key: CWM12-78
  • Legacy Issue Number: 4247
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Adaptive ( Mr. Pete Rivett)
  • Summary:

    XML metamodel should be based on W3C XML Information Set. W3C has a standard called XML Information Set (at Candidate Recommendation status) "This specification defines an abstract data set called the XML Information Set (Infoset). Its purpose is to provide a consistent set of definitions for use in other specifications that need to refer to the information in a well-formed XML document"

    In effect it defines an information model for XML with the following Information Items (the equivalent of classes in CWM): Document, Element, Attribute, Processing Instruction, Unexpanded Entity Reference, Character, Comment, Document Type Declaration, Unparsed Entity,Notation, Namespace. It would seem that since this is what W3C says should be modeled for XML documents then this should be the basis of the CWM XML model (the content part as opposed to the Schema part), or at least CWM should specify how it maps to this Information Set.
