Subject RE: namespace question
Date Fri, 26 Sep 2003 16:35:25 GMT
I have a few followup questions about this.

1) What is the preferred way to do this?  Is it preferred to use
elementFormDefault="qualified" or not?  Is there anything mentioned about
this in ws-i or any other spec that tries to standardize web services?

2) So if elementFormDefault="qualified" is not set and the element is a
child of the schema root then it should use the targetNnamespace?  Otherwise
if it is a local element it should not.  If elementFormDefault="qualified"
is set then all should use the targetNamespace.  Just to make sure.

Thanks,

Chris
