Not enforcing order/multiplicity in an xsd:sequence [message #492935] Thu, 22 October 2009 12:21 Go to next message

Consider the following XSD fragment:

<xs:sequence maxOccurs="unbounded">
<xs:element name="fruit" type="xs:string" minOccurs="1" maxOccurs="1"/>
<xs:element name="cake" type="xs:int" minOccurs="1" maxOccurs="1"/>
</xs:sequence>


So, this requires that a single fruit is followed by a single cake, but any number of pairs can be included (i.e. fruit, cake - or, fruit, cake, fruit, cake, fruit, cake - etc.).

If I wrap this in a complexType and transform that to EMF, I end up with a class with getFruit() and getCake() methods that return lists. So far, so good. However, when I come to serialize that class, the multiplicity and ordering of the fruits and cakes are not enforced, leading to XML that is considered invalid against the schema, such as:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<x2:Repeater xmlns:x2="http://x2">
<cake>22</cake>
<fruit>Banana</fruit>
<fruit>Apple</fruit>
<fruit>Orange</fruit>
<cake>75</cake>
</x2:Repeater>


Any comments welcomed.

Apologies if I've overlooked something, but I couldn't find any existing references to this problem.

Thanks,
Ben.

Ben,

In https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=51210 there is a
prototype implementation for capturing more complex particle constraints
such as the one you show here. There just never seems time to complete
this...

There's also the overall feature for controlling the mixed order, right?

Thanks Ed. Actually, I'd seen that Bugzilla entry, but hadn't appeciated that it's an instance of the same issue.

Cheers,
Ben.
