Politics? baaah no, Feedback on peer's work? yeah!
Hi Eliot, Since politics seem popular in this list these days. I'll break the trend by being the fisrt in this list to provide you with feedback about the docuent you posted (ref: Using UML to Define XML document types) a) first and formemost, since it now seems that we have a plethora of way to define an XML document structure and types, your approach have the advantage to isolate from these particular ways to define an XML document. From what I read, this method will surely be favored by visually inclined people. But for more aural ones, text methods will would probbly prevail. I still have to carefully understand and study the advantages you listed. b) In page 3 you said: "Elements have a local type name, a "public" (persistent) name...". What do you mean by a persistent name in addition to the local type name? c) In page 4 the figure shows an element's information content. I know that we do not have for XML the equivalent of the grove element"s class definition. But, is this list of properties for an element the only ones or is there any additional ones. Or are these properties above the abstraction level of the element's properties. d) Your element's content definition (page 5) is probaly more useful than the actual info set definition since your definition show the relationship between the elements. Thus, there is less ambiguity. enough for the moment. I need a second reading to ding more into it. Thanks for this good work Eliot.
