Re: Comments on GRDDL (transformation failure case)

Dear Andrew, and XSL/XQuery WG

thank you for your earlier comment:

1) When a transformation fails, or it produces non-RDF elements, the
result/meaning should be specified.

The GRDDL WG have now considered this comment, and decided to address it 
by adding a new test to the GRDDL Test Cases WD.

The test case is currently in a pending list. The Test Cases editor has 
been actioned to add it to the editors draft. The two implementations 
that pass the tests in the Last Call editor's draft, also both pass this 
test, and so the WG has approved the test.

The test case is currently found at:


and indicates the the XHTML document


has a single GRDDL result:


arising from the single GRDDL transformation of the input that executes 
without errors.

The Test Cases editors draft is found at:


and the final URI agreed for this test is:


Please reply whether you are satisfied with this response.

We are still awaiting a response concerning the other half of your 
comment, see:

thank you

Jeremy Carroll, on behalf of the GRDDL WG

PS: As a personal comment, I note that this test shows a limited degree 
of interoperability between the two GRDDL implementations tested, in 
that they agree on the GRDDL result for this test. It does not show 
interoperability between their error handling mechanisms. Any 
interoperability in handling the errors is unlikely, since one is 
written in python and the other in Java. The manner in which such errors 
are reported, or indeed, if they are reported, is not specified by this 
test, or, to my knowledge, elsewhere in the GRDDL documents.
