Subject [jira] Created: (JCR-62) import must not ignore xml prefixed attributes
Date Sat, 12 Mar 2005 20:57:58 GMT
import must not ignore xml prefixed attributes
----------------------------------------------

         Key: JCR-62
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-62
     Project: Jackrabbit
        Type: Bug
  Components: xml  
    Reporter: Roy T. Fielding
    Priority: Blocker


XML import currently ignores attributes that are in the xml namespace.
e.g., DocViewImportHandler's startElement():

                if (atts.getQName(i).startsWith("xml:")) {
                    // skipping xml:space, xml:lang, etc.
                    log.debug("skipping reserved/system attribute " + atts.getQName(i));
                    continue;
                }

That is a significant loss of information, since xml:base, xml:lang, and xml:id attributes
are critical to the content.  We should register the xml prefix as a reserved namespace (not
needing an xmlns declaration) and then treat it like any other attribute.

Here are some useful XML examples:
