Hi Bruce,

I didn't do the namespace bindings for those prefixes because no elements in any response from that WFS belong to any of those namespaces - as you've shown. If any were, and I hadn't declared them then you would have got a validation error.

If you do add new elements from any of those namespaces to the feature type configurations in the future you will have to add the appropriate namespace bindings. I'm pretty sure Geoserver won't even build the feature type and allow it to be served if namespaces aren't properly declared.

Well done Gilly,
A reminder to all that the instances we agreed to produce are listed at:

As far as I can tell the slightly modified Testbed4 WFS Alistair set up to deliver GeoSciML v3.0, GeoSciML v2.0 and GeoSciML-Portrayal from GSV test data is still valid - at least XMLSpy validates the results (http://geology.data.vic.gov.au/services-test/geosciml/testbed/250k/wfs?SERVICE=WFS&REQUEST=GetCapabilities)

However, the WFS doesn't use the GeoSciML name spaces Gilly listed, only xmlns:cgu="http://xmlns.geosciml.org/Utilities/3.0" and  xmlns:gsml30="http://xmlns.geosciml.org/GeoSciML-Core/3.0".
Presumably using the top level GeoSciML-Core namespace means not having to use the other namespaces:

Or are the query results invalid?

Note that the results contain the GeoSciML v3.0 features:

Along with the GeoSciML-Portrayal features:

I'd appreciate any errors any of you notice with these examples.

Dear GeoSciMLers,

I've now posted the new schemas on http://schemas.geosciml.org/
(I've removed the geosciml.xsd for rc3 for the reasons detailed in Ollie's email below)

Enjoy drafting the v3.0 instance documents!

Dear all,

The RC3 schemas (attached) are ready for upload to schemas.geosciml.org<http://schemas.geosciml.org<http://schemas.geosciml.org/>> and instance doc testing.  I have added in all the required nil/nilReason elements to the schemas generated by Francois in FullMoon, and tested every class, attribute and association in test instance docs.  I have also made some minor model and schema tweaks where I found some missing tags or other UML oversights. *

Note that we have not produced an umbrella "geosciml.xsd" schema due to the issues with namespaces described by Bruce a while ago.  Instance docs will now need to use the schemas from each of the separate GeoSciML application schema packages.

Could everyone please re-acquaint themselves with the instance document list at https://www.seegrid.csiro.au/wiki/CGIModel/EdinburghModelAgendaAndNotes - (Point 17. Schedule for publication and testing of GeoSciML v3 (rc3) and GeoSciML-Portrayal v1).  We are 1 week behind that schedule due to unforeseen northern hemisphere holidays.

Cheers, and happy XML encoding,

* One more update is still to be done in the LaboratoryAnalysis UML package, and will be done when I recover my laptop from a virus infection over the weekend.   Virus 1 - McAfee nil.
