    It's not really documented how a parameter whose size is determined dynamically
    should react with segment entries which are fixed. Should the user be warned
    when they don't match? In addition arrays can be split across its dimensions
    by using the attribute lastEntryForThisArray, how does this interact with
    segments or in combination with dynamic values in parameter lengths? An array
    in a container, referenced as a containerSegment should be considered as well.
    This needs to documented.

    If you have a parameterRefEntry of dynamic length and parameterSegment next of
    a fixed lenght – BUT you really need to adjust the segment based on the
    dynamic lenght. This seems either impossible or difficult to do in XTCE at
    this time.

  • Disposition Summary:

    Merged to proposal for XTCE12-107

    The root cause of this issue is that array definitions in XTCE 1.1 are broken. The repairs are part of the resolution for XTCE12-107. Merging this issue with that one to share resolutions.
