e..g magazine cover has different barcodes for different regions by inside magazine remains the same.

I have seen different variations generated by MIS vendors, which is recommended?

  • no PartVersion since not versioned
  • PartVersion contains a list of all versions since the plates are common for all versions
  • PartVersion contains a single version (the base or 'grund' version) since no versions added on top of that

      This is similar but different to Specify ExposedMedia PartVersions for Sheet based versioning (clustered)?

      Since neither "all" "base" or "grund" are specified anywhere in the JDF Specification, the 3rd option is clearly wrong.

      In this case, there is no generalized setup with n>1 non-versioned insides so I'd prefer the elegance of simplicity: If there is no version, it should not be specified, i.e. Option 1 is preferred. But don't forget to set PartUsage="Sparse".

      Unfortunately, the specification remains silent so that prepress systems will probably be well advised to correctly read both option 1 and 2.
