XTCE13 — Cleanup Container EntryList element by deprecating IndirectParameterRefEntry

  • Key: XTCE13-27
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Boeing ( David Overeem)
  • Summary:

    The IndirectParameterRefEntry is a clever construct that has the potential to be useful, although I am not aware of anyone who has used it.

    I suggest that we consider removing it because it is a limited case of the more general case solved by the IncludeCondition element. The IncludeCondition can provide this functionality and a lot more. As a result, this element is effort for implementers that doesn't add anything really "new". In addition, it leaves a case where the need is addressed in more than 1 way - which is generally not the best idea.
