XMI12 — Invalid example model encoding XML

  • Key: XMI12-3
  • Legacy Issue Number: 5770
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Telecommunity Consultants ( Phillip J. Eby)
  • Summary:

    The example model encoding XML is invalid, according to the DTD that appears above it. It shows <Envelope.toAddress> and <Envelope.fromAddress> tags which are not as described in the DTD, instead of containing nested <Address> tags, as it should.

    I found this confusing and in fact implemented code that handled parsing of erroneous constructs such as these because I thought I had misread the specification portions of the document. The error has been present since early versions of the XMI 1.1 specification.
