XSLT and XQuery Serialization 3.1


feedback due by: 2016-01-31


This document defines serialization of an instance of the data model as defined in [XQuery and XPath Data Model (XDM) 3.1] into a sequence of octets. Serialization is designed to be a component that can be used by other specifications such as [XSL Transformations (XSLT) Version 3.0] or [XQuery 3.1: An XML Query Language].

Status of the Document

This section describes the status of this document at the time of its publication. Other documents may supersede this document. A list of current W3C publications and the latest revision of this technical report can be found in the W3C technical reports index at http://www.w3.org/TR/.

This document is governed by the 1 September 2015 W3C Process Document.

W3C publishes a Candidate Recommendation, as described in the Process Document, to indicate that the document is believed to be stable and to encourage implementation by the developer community.

This document was jointly developed by the W3C XSLT Working Group and the W3C XML Query Working Group, each of which is part of the XML Activity. It will remain a Candidate Recommendation until at least 31 January 2016. The Working Groups expect to advance this specification to Recommendation Status.

This document will be considered ready for transition to Proposed Recommendation at the same time that the XQuery 3.1 specification is ready for transition to Proposed Recommendation.

Once the entrance criteria for Proposed Recommendation have been achieved, the Director will be requested to advance this document to Proposed Recommendation status. Working closely with the developer community, we expect to show evidence of implementations by approximately 1 March 2016.

This Candidate Recommendation specifies XSLT and XQuery Serialization version 3.1, a fully compatible extension of Serialization version 3.0. The XML Query and XSLT Working Groups are publishing an updated version of this document because a number of changes were made as a result of review feedback; see the change log.

This specification is designed to be referenced normatively from other specifications defining a host language for it; it is not intended to be implemented outside a host language. The implementability of this specification has been tested in the context of its normative inclusion in host languages defined by the XQuery 3.1 and XSLT 3.0 (expected in 2015) specifications; see the XQuery 3.1 implementation report (and, in the future, the WGs expect that there will also be an XSLT 3.0 implementation report) for details.

This document incorporates changes made against the previous publication of the Working Draft. Changes to this document since the previous publication of the Working Draft are detailed in F Change Log.

Please report errors in this document using W3C&#x27;s public Bugzilla system (instructions can be found at http://www.w3.org/XML/2005/04/qt-bugzilla). If access to that system is not feasible, you may send your comments to the W3C XSLT/XPath/XQuery public comments mailing list, public-qt-comments@w3.org. It will be very helpful if you include the string “[SER31]” in the subject line of your report, whether made in Bugzilla or in email. Please use multiple Bugzilla entries (or, if necessary, multiple email messages) if you have more than one comment to make. Archives of the comments and responses are available at http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-qt-comments/.

Publication as a Candidate Recommendation does not imply endorsement by the W3C Membership. This is a draft document and may be updated, replaced or obsoleted by other documents at any time. It is inappropriate to cite this document as other than work in progress.
