As a couple of people have noted, I've done some work on getting
full namespace support into 1.5.
However, I think some clarifications need to be made:
1) When people full namespace compliance, what do they mean exactly? My
understanding (and the answer I got when I posed the question to
jdev) is that this simply means support for arbitrary prefixes. Is
2) Since a normal connection has two XML streams, and thus, two XML
documents, are the namespace prefixes required to be the same for
both streams? ie, is this valid?
C: <bar:iq type='set' id='a1'>
S: <iq type='result' id='a1'/>
IMO, this should be allowed. Full namespace support requires some
fundamental changes to the way a XML streams implementation works, and I
know from my work on 1.5 that this is much easier to implement than
keeping prefixes the same would be.
There should be a JEP on this, to outline exactly what the requirements
