DDSXML — Minor typos, inconsistencies, and updates in specification document

  • Key: DDSXML-5
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Real-Time Innovations ( Fernando Garcia-Aranda)
  • Summary:

    The specification includes a number of typos that should be fixed:

    • On Table 7.2, the caption should be "Supported XML Attribute Values" instead of "Supported XML Element Values"
    • In section Using Schema Files with Different Namespaces fix closing tag of "datareader_qos", which is incorrectly labeled as "dateader_qos".
    • In section, the type of the "kind" element should be "historyKind" instead of "dds:historyKind".
    • In section, rename "Binary" simpleType as "ddsBinary" and change the value element's type to "ddsBinary".
    • In section change the topic name from "FisrstTopic" to "FirstTopic".

    Moreover, the specification includes some inconsistencies:

    • Section 7.1.1 states that the XML representation of DDS-related resources shall use <dds> as the root of every document; however, this is incompatible with the flexibility offered by building blocks. It is also incompatible with having a root for type representation such as <types>. We should simply remove this requirement.

    Finally, some of the references are outdated and should be updated to the latest revision of the specifications:

    • Update reference to the IDL standard to version 4.2.
    • Update reference to the DDS-XTypes standard to version 1.2.
