Hi folks,                                     Saturday (6 November 2004)


[for discussion at our next WIMS telecon and in San Antonio]

I have just posted a Subunits XML schema v0.20, which validates without
warnings using XML SPY 2004, XRay 2.0, and XSV 2.5 (the free XML Schema
Validator) at:

    ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/wims/schemas/subunits-20041106.xsd

Every table in Printer MIB v2 (RFC 3805) is expressed in this XML schema
in the following subunits:

    Channel - input job channel
    Console - local console (including console lights and buffer)
    Cover - cover or door
    General - general (defaults and top-level counters)
    InputTray - input tray
    Interface - interface from RFC 1213 and RFC 2863
    Interpreter - interpreter (without transformer enhancements)
    Marker - marker (including marker colorant and marker supplies)
    MediaPath - media path
    OutputBin - output bin


Notes:

(1) The types 'SubunitCounter[16|32]', 'SubunitIdentifier[16|32]',
    'SubunitPointer[16|32]' are used for clarity and consistency.

(2) Out-of-band values for counters and pointers use new elements of
    type 'SubunitCounterBasisWKV' or 'SubunitPointerBasisWKV'.

(3) To be supplied - Finisher subunit (from RFC 3806) - to complete
    model in Printer MIB v2 (RFC 3805).

(4) For discussion - Scanner subunit - to complete set of subunits for
    multifunction device counters.


Cheers,
- Ira

------------------------------------------------------------------------
[changes from Subunits v0.10 to v0.20]

(1) Minor editorial fixups;

(2) Added 'set of' datatypes ('Channels', etc.) for Printer MIB tables,
    per request of Pete Zehler (Xerox);

(3) Added General, Interpreter, Marker, MarkerSupply, MarkerColorant,
    MediaPath, and OutputBin groups for complete mapping to Printer MIB;

(4) Added include of Alert XML schema to define 'SubunitAlerts' element
    (i.e., prtAlertTable mapping);

(5) Renamed all 'InputXxx' elements to 'InputTrayXxx',
    for clarity (to distinguish from input jobs in MFD model);

(6) Renamed all 'OutputXxx' elements to 'OutputBinXxx',
    for clarity (to distinguish from output jobs in MFD model);

(7) Added 'InterpreterAddressabilityUnit' (missing in Printer MIB v2),
    to remove ambiguity (w/ marker addressability units);

(8) Added 'MarkerInfo' and 'MarkerColorantInfo' (both missing in
    Printer MIB v2), for completeness;
