I don't know of any rule that makes this illegal (try it on some processors
to check). But it's certainly meaningless. (It certainly doesn't mean that
the attribute is allowed provided its value isn't "A", if that's what you
were thinking!)

Subject: Attribute declaration when use="prohibited"



Hi all,

If the attribute declaration has use="prohibited", Can we have simpleType as
child of attribute?

EX:

<xs:attribute name="Second_Attribute" use="prohibited">

                                   <xs:simpleType>

                                          <xs:restriction base="xs:string">

                                                 <xs:enumeration value="A"
/>

                                          </xs:restriction>

                                   </xs:simpleType>

</xs:attribute>

 

Can anybody tell me whether the above attribute declaration is correct or
not??

 

Thanks and Regards,

Bharath.

Hi.. 

According to schema spec. the attribute declaration is 

 

<attribute
  default = string
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/REC-xmlschema-2-20041028/datatypes.html#string> 
  fixed = string
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/REC-xmlschema-2-20041028/datatypes.html#string> 
  form = (qualified | unqualified)
  id = ID
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/REC-xmlschema-2-20041028/datatypes.html#ID> 
  name = NCName
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/REC-xmlschema-2-20041028/datatypes.html#NCName> 
  ref = QName
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/REC-xmlschema-2-20041028/datatypes.html#QName> 
  type = QName
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/REC-xmlschema-2-20041028/datatypes.html#QName> 
  use = (optional | prohibited | required) : optional
  {any attributes with non-schema namespace . . .}>
  Content: (
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/REC-xmlschema-1-20041028/#element-annotation>
annotation?,
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/REC-xmlschema-1-20041028/#element-simpleType>
simpleType?)
</attribute>

 

(i.e) attribute declaration content can be "annotation" and "simpleType".
When I give a complexType as follows, 

 

<xs:attribute name="Second_Attribute" use="prohibited">

                                   <xs:simpleType>

                                          <xs:restriction base="xs:string">

                                                 <xs:enumeration value="A"
/>

                                          </xs:restriction>

                                   </xs:simpleType>

 

                                   <xs:annotation>

<xs:documentation>

Adkssan

</xs:documentation>

</xs:annotation>

</xs:attribute>

 

Where I have given both annotation and SimpleType. 

Altova spy is giving error that "annotation element is not allowed". But
according to schema spec, I think this is correct.

Can anybody tell me whether this is an error or not an error.

 

Thanks and Regards,

Bharath.
