XML includes

Fri Nov 10, 2017 2:22 pm

Amidst all this dicussion of syntax, I have a question about the XML. (Can you tell I'm doing some experiment code work?)

I'm trying to use XInclude directives within states (inside <task_system_state> tags).
If I put an include directive that points to a missing file (or corrupt file) inside a state, I don't get a parser error.
Include directives right after <monkeyml> continue to give errors for missing files.

I've tried:
<xi:include href="../XmlSharedIncludes/BaseExp.xml" parse="xml">
<xi:include href="../XmlSharedIncludes/BaseExp.xml" parse="xml" xpointer="xpointer(//monkeyml/*)"/>
(and tried with and without the trailing slash before >)

Is this expected?

thanks,
Radu

Hi,

The XML parser Oxygen uses does not support evaluating full xpath expressions in xi:include xpointer schemes.
This topic in our user's guide has a few examples with the xpointer syntax that is currently supported:

https://www.oxygenxml.com/doc/versions/19.1/ug-editor/topics/including-document-parts-with-XInclude.html

Basically you can include an element which has a certain xml:id or you can use an xpointer syntax like "/1/2" to include the second child of the root element. You also cannot include multiple elements.

Regards,
Radu
