DMN14 — DMNDiagram 'Size' attribute has capital 'S' in schema definition

  • Key: DMN14-142
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Montera Pty Ltd ( Greg McCreath)
  • Summary:

    The DMNDI13 XML schema has element child element 'Size' for DMNDiagram. Note the capital 'S'. This is an anomaly as all other element names have a lower case first char.

    Additionally, the spec on page 238 incorrectly has the element as 'size' - with a lower case.

    Suggestion is deprecate 'Size' in the schema, support both for a time, then drop 'Size' to support only support 'size' - to align the naming in the schema with other elements. And update the spec accordingly.

    It is not worth breaking backward compatibility, for a purely cosmetic issue in the XML schema. The XML serialization is meant to be written and read by software and this should be a major problem for implementers. XML schema validation should easily uncover a bug in an exporter and the fix is trivial.
