<trackbot> Tracking ISSUEs and ACTIONs from http://www.w3.org/2005/06/tracker/databinding/
pauld: no objections for the last minutes
pauld: all are welcome to the WG
... lets go through briefly through the issues we discussed last time
paulb paulb: wonders about the value of this pattern for databinding
paulb: proposes to tackle issue 9 first
paulb: we use unions in our
... I haven't given it serious thought but I know that XQuery struggled with it
... I think the schema tool should at least support unions to the level of Xquery
sekhar: is it a strongly typed object that you get from XQuery?
pauld: what is the JAXB support for unions
sekhar: JAXB used to return a
strongly typed object
... JAXB had a complex algorithm to calculate a common super type
... will find more info for the next telcon
<pauld> ACTION: svajjhal to report on JAXB support for open enumerated type [recorded in http://www.w3.org/2006/01/17-databinding-minutes.html#action01]
<trackbot> Created ACTION-8 - Report on JAXB support for open enumerated type [on Sekhar Vajjhala - due 2006-01-24].
sekhar: Union is a case we don't
have a strong mapping to a programming language
... I will look into the enumerated type support in Java and get back to the group
<pauld> discussion of using open enum for versioning
paulb: people use it for versioning or localization
pauld: I want to revisit this
issue the next time when sekhar comes back with more info
paulb: there's no generic rule
that is applicable to all languages
... we may have recommendations that say how QNames are mapped to language identifiers
jonc: we may not allow the full use of XML here - to make it a safe for most languages
sekhar: we should leave the job to the databinding vendor
<Yves> the length issue reminds me of the issue of internationalization of domain names
paub: what would a databinding tool do if I have a million character long element name ?
