<Ajith> guys - I've to go away for 5 mins

ISSUE-66: Enumeration based on SimpleType

gcowe: also mentions the collection pattern which is similar

ISSUE-65: Overlapping Patterns

gcowe: introduces issue, is overlapping an issue, but working with schematron works even when patterns overlap.

pauld .. overlap doesn't seem to be a problem

<Ajith> ok - i'm back

pauld: proposes ISSUE 65 is closed

<pauld> RESOLUTION: close ISSUE-65 with no action

ISSUE-12: identifying a conformant schema

pauld: we're using Schematron and XPath to detect patterns .. so far so good.. we may yet come unstuck with import/include and have to do more work ..

pauld .. will value Scott's fresh eyes on this work

gcowe: been working on this, adding more XPaths, for collection, stringEnumeration, structures as opposed to individual elements/attributes

pauld: thanks george for his work, we'll pick up on this at the F2F

ISSUE-5: test suite

pauld: explains the test suite setup to test patterns against a number of toolkits
... worry is that test schema may be incorrect - rendering test results incorrect

scott: will find out what other tools are used in NACS

pauld: asks scott to contribute any new patterns
... been looking at java based tools - axis and xfire...

ajith: will progress work with xmlunit to help automate testing

pauld: asks ajith to post a link to describe using xmlunit in axis


pauld: ... outlines plans for basic patterns - interop event on east coast US in november - with maybe another f2f in september - probably in europe

pauld: f2f next week, Scott, Ajithi, etc can join us on IRC and we can set up ad-hoc dialing if required, probably not via Zakim.

If there is interest, we can have a regular meeting during the F2F.


Ajith: leaving the WG in two weeks time to take up full time education.

pauld: OK, congratulations on your new adventure and thanks for your contribution to the WG.
