> I am on rev 5274. 
> data import from .xml file: empty attributes (e.g. description="") are ignored and the
field retains its former value.

> This patch comments out the check for null or empty values in the data XML file found
by the EntitySaxReader. I also added an additional warning message in case you do not want
to persist empty values to the database but still would like to know what happened.

> Chris- 
> Just a comment: it's very important that a field in the entity engine is set to null
ONLY when the XML file specifically has an empty attribute (ie, description=""). Otherwise,
there's a lot of seed data that is in separate XML files, and they could overwrite each other.

> Si, 
> I'm not sure I understand your comment about seed data in seperate XML files overwriting
each other. Shouldn't seed data XML files be entity specific? Why would one seed data XML
file overwrite another? 
> Do you have any comment on what a better solution is for seed data values that could
be empty? 
> Thanks
