Re: Three quick array questions
- Question (3) is interesting question from a logical design
perspective and I don't think it ever got a reply.
i.e., if an array had SOAP-ENC:offset[i], and if array members
It would seem to me that if the offset indicated "i", then the
position attribute on the array members would be allowed if and only
if the position ordinal followed i,i+1,...n
1) "n" is <= the length of the array
2) "i" >= 0
3) array is not marked xsd:nil="1"
4) array members <= "n"
Under this logic it would also follow that the position attribute is
not required when offset is used.
Is this consistent with others understanding?
