Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-383) xmlbeans magic allows us to accept some invalid deployment descriptors
Date Fri, 11 Nov 2005 15:06:35 GMT
I put this in 1.x as a target.  Does this need to be a 1.0 item?

>>The element reordering and other xmlbeans magic we do to convert pre-1.4 deployment

descriptors to valid ones.  This has been fixed in SchemaConversionUtils.conv
ertToServletSchema 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:

>>3. validating against xmlbeans objects for the schema corresponding to the dtd.
