Subject [jira] [Created] (AXIS2-5799) Axis2 xsd2java - namespace prefix added to inherited attributes
Date Tue, 05 Jul 2016 08:47:11 GMT
Jeff Thomas created AXIS2-5799:

             Summary: Axis2 xsd2java - namespace prefix added to inherited attributes
                 Key: AXIS2-5799
             Project: Axis2
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: adb
    Affects Versions: 1.7.3
         Environment: Axis2 1.7.3
Maven 3.3+
            Reporter: Jeff Thomas
            Priority: Blocker
             Fix For: 1.7.4, 1.8.0

We have recently migrated from Axis2 1.6.2 to 1.7.3.

We have multiple XSDs that extend complex-type elements from a common parent XSD.

After the migration, we now have different namespace prefixes on our attributes.

For example:  
1.6.2     <child:Object id="1234" name="JohnDoe".../>
1.7.3     <child:Object child:id="1234" parent:name="JohnDoe".../>

According to the namespace spec ():
"Default namespace declarations do not apply directly to attribute names; the interpretation
of unprefixed attributes is determined by the element on which they appear."

In the generated Java code, for example the parse methods now have fully qualified attribute

if (localName != null){
  writeAttribute("", "name", org.apache.axis2.databinding.utils.ConverterUtil.convertToString(localName),
if (localId != null){
  writeAttribute("", "id", org.apache.axis2.databinding.utils.ConverterUtil.convertToString(localId),

Previously I believe, the given attribute namespace was null.  

The serialized XML generated with this approach does not validate in AltovaXML editor.  (The
attribute 'core:name' is not permitted in the element <child:Object>).

I will attach an example with two XSDs and the Axis 1.7.3 generated source-code.
