Subject [jira] Updated: (MWAR-218) Missed XSD Schema for the file webapp-cache.xml
Date Sun, 14 Feb 2010 08:00:57 GMT


Stephane Nicoll updated MWAR-218:

    Affects Version/s:     (was: 2.0)

> Missed XSD Schema for the file webapp-cache.xml
> -----------------------------------------------
>                 Key: MWAR-218
>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven 2.x WAR Plugin
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>    Affects Versions: 2.1-beta-1
>            Reporter: Felipe Ga├║cho
> When packaging a web-application, maven-war-plugin generates a cache file, as described
> This cache file is an XML file but the generated file doesn't contains an Schema or DTD
declaration on its header. This makes impossible to validate such file, generating warnings
in the most common Java IDEs. Since it is a mandatory XML file I believe it should has a model
specification somewhere (a XSD Schema I hope), eventually just not released for public usage.
> The steps I expect to make Maven 2 WAR plugin better:
> - to modify the generator of the webapp-cache.xml file to include the proper XML header
(with namespace and schema location)
> - to make the schema of such file publicly available, in order to give the developers
and automatic tools a chance to validate any error in a deployable artifact.
> This will give us a chance to detect potential bugs before to deploy a web-application.
> ----------- The expected header is something like:
> <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
> <webapp-structure xmlns="" xmlns:xsi=""
> 	xsi:schemaLocation="
> ...
> </webapp-structure>
