1378RE: [newsml-g2] Where to store custom and dynamic properties in News Item?
- Aug 12, 2013Hi
The NewsML-G2 XML Schema includes
l-Power.xsd) multiple Extension Points which are defined as
<xs:any namespace="##other" processContents="lax" minOccurs="0"
<xs:documentation>Extension point for provider-defined
properties from other namespaces</xs:documentation>
- their purpose is to hold additional provider specific properties
- the names of these additional properties must be from another namespace =
not the nar: namespace
Typically these Extension Points are placed as last child of elements which
act as wrapper of properties, e.g. rightsInfo, itemMeta, contentMeta,
