ISSUE-9: Support for xs:union


Raised by: Paul Downey
On product: Basic

Description: A number of binding tools do not support the xs:union construct 
well.  They often map a attribute/element xs:union value to a simple string 
irrespective of whether the type contains integers or other more specific 
types.  (It would be hoped that binding tools will improve in this area in 

Proposal:  Developers should be made aware that binding tools don't always 
handle xs:union well, and as such should avoid the construct if possible. 
However, there are occasions when xs:union can not be avoided.  In this case 
developers should be aware that additional application level processing may 
be required.
