PIDS11 — using XML for traits and metadata

  • Key: PIDS11-28
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3019
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Level Seven Visualizations ( Jon Farmer)
  • Summary:

    Since this representation of trait values in XML is fully-compliant at the
    IDL level, it's not a functionality change.
    The expression of trait metadata (so as to document the STRUCTURE of it) is
    a functionality change but it is defensible as a fix, even to make to make
    it possible for PIDS clients to validate dates - not just textual format but
    the value domains at the basic and abstract datatypes.

    I think we can all agree at this point that we need an operation on
    IdentificationComponent called


    and I feel strongly that it should use DTD notation. If we agree at this
    level (please everyone - do you agree so far?), then I think the next
    question is how to express basic and abstract types in the DTD.
