Jose LacalSubject: XQuery and eXist error processing an XMI file.
Author: Jose Lacal
Date: 07 Jun 2007 12:36 PM
Hello, I am a newbie so this might be a stupid question.

a.) I have an XMI file (attached) generated through StarUML (a good F/OSS UML/MDA tool).

b.) I loaded the XMI file into eXist (a F/OSS native XML database).

c.) The following XQuery works as expected:

declare namespace UML = "href://org.omg/UML/1.3";
for $elem in doc("http://localhost:8080/exist/servlet/db/uml_usecases/UseCase03.xml")/XMI/XMI.content
let $base_actor := $elem/UML:Model/UML:Namespace.ownedElement/UML:Model/UML:Namespace.ownedElement/UML:Actor
let $base_tag := $elem/UML:TaggedValue
{ $base_actor }
{ $base_tag }

I get the following:


<UML:Actor xmi.id ="UMLActor.23" name ="AB_Member" visibility ="public" isSpecification ="false" namespace ="UMLModel.2" supplierDependency ="UMLDependency.27 UMLDependency.31 UMLDependency.33" isRoot ="false" isLeaf ="false" isAbstract ="false" specialization ="UMLGeneralization.38"/>


d.) Here is the problem: I want to extract individual values out of the UML:Actor node, for example:
* xmi.id ="UMLActor.23"
* name ="AB_Member"

So I modify the XQuery as follows:
{ $base_actor/name } instead of { $base_actor/ }
and now I do not get _any_ results under $base_actor, only under $base_tag

Then, if I modify the XQuery as follows:
{ $base_actor//@name }

I get:
Error found
XPST0081: No namespace defined for prefix request

How can I extract the values inside the UML:Actor node? Any suggestions appreciated. Regards.

Hi Jose,
the correct query to get an attribute is

{ $base_actor/@name }
