JDF has the principle of namespace extensions to add new functionality. It also has combined @Types such as @Type="Imposition DigitalPrinting". If I had a new device/process which needs to form part of a combined device, how would it be specified to keep CIP4 compliancy.
eg. @Type="Imposition DigitalPrinting newnamespace:NewDevice" ?
The above seems odd as the namespace is really meant to be on an XML attribute or XML element name, not within the value.
many thanks - somehow missed that in the spec.
yes, you are right, it looks really odd. However, this is the way how it is described in the JDF Specificaion.
See JDF Spec 1.6 Final Chapter 3.12 Extensibility.
The chapter 3.12.3 is very specific about Extending Process Types. There is also an example (Example 3.39) which shows you exactly how to do that.
