RE: [xsl] XPath 2.0 Best Practice: wrap the first node of every path expression within schema-element?

Is there anyone from Altova on this list? To my mind, if the Altova XSLT/XPath processor doesn't raise an error or a warning on: schema-element(Book)/Foo then it is a pretty serious drawback of the Altova processor. Certainly I will not recommend to my clients the use of any XSLT/XPath processor which does not raise an error or warning on schema-element(Book)/Foo /Roger -----Original Message----- From: Florent Georges [mailto:lists@xxxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Wednesday, March 26, 2008 5:35 AM To: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: Re: [xsl] XPath 2.0 Best Practice: wrap the first node of every path expression within schema-element?

The mispellings are not on direct childs of the element you used schema-element on. Maybe they only implemented simpler checks: only on direct childs, and maybe only when schema-element appears within the XPath expression itself. If I remember correctly, Altova doesn't respond to questions if you didn't get a support contract (they won't even listen to your comments.) So we can only guess here, and say that if the following XPath expression doesn't emit any warning, then this processor most probably doesn't implement any static type analysis: <xsl:template match="/"> <xsl:value-of select="schema-element(Book)/Foo"/> </xsl:template> Regards, --drkm _______________________________________________________________________ ______ Envoyez avec Yahoo!
