Dear Felix,

For EBUCore what was in bracket were examples.

The namespaces are for the latest versions of EBUCore and TV-Anytime:

EBUCore: "urn:ebu:metadata-schema:ebuCore_2010"
TVA: "urn:tva:metadata:2010"

Subject: Mappings update for XPath

Hello all,

I have finished my action item ACTION-288 on XPath 1.0 expressions, see the attached zip file. Below are some comments, including questions - please check. I cannot commit to the server at the moment - Thierry, could you do that for me? See the attached zip file.

- I used relative location paths http://www.w3.org/TR/xpath/#NT-RelativeLocationPath . Often it is not clear what the starting point for the expressions is (document root or somewhere else?), so using the relative location path seems save to me.

- I used single quotes for values, e.g. @DESCRIPTION='Image Creator'

- I kept capitalization "as is", e.g. METADATA/IPR/IPR_NAMES/IPR_PERSON[@DESCRIPTION='Image Creator'] . Format owners, please check whether that is appropriate.

- I used small letter "or" as a separator between xpath expressions, since the literal sequence "or" is part of xpath spec http://www.w3.org/TR/xpath/#NT-OrExpr
same for "and" http://www.w3.org/TR/xpath/#NT-AndExpr

- I replaced "AND" in examples like


with "or" since "or" is inclusive in XPath, and I think that is the desired intention.

- EBUCore and TVA: could someone tell me the namespace URIs? The mapping tables just mention the prefixes.

- I could (again in EBUCore) not make sense of expressions like
EBUCoreMain/coreMetadata/type/objectType/@typeLabel (collection, string)
EBUCoreMain/coreMetadata/type/objectType/@typeLink (collection, anyURI)
and I just deleted the part in the brackets ().

Regards, Felix.
