Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-383) xmlbeans magic allows us to accept some invalid deployment descriptors
Date Fri, 11 Nov 2005 07:32:03 GMT
    [ ] 

David Jencks commented on GERONIMO-383:

yes, this area needs a thorough review to make sure we are validating pre-j2ee 1.4 descriptors
properly before converting them to j2ee 1.4 descriptors.  I believe there are still quite
a few unvalidated cases.

> The element reordering and other xmlbeans magic we do to convert pre-1.4 deployment descriptors
to 1.4 versions can have the unintended side effect of converting invalid 1.4 descriptors
to valid ones.  This has been fixed in SchemaConversionUtils.convertToServletSchema for servlet
1.3 web.xml.  We should apply this same fix of checking for namespace before conversion to
other modules (ejb etc) and extend the checking to:
> 1. look for the DOCTYPE using xmlbeans
> 2. converting to a made-up namespace for that dtd
> 3. validating against xmlbeans objects for the schema corresponding to the dtd.
