Hi folks,                                      Friday (2 September 2005)

I have just posted a first draft of a CIM Delta schema that supports all
of the necessary CIM model elements necessary to update any of the CIM
printing objects:

    ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/wims/schemas/cimdelta-20050902.xsd
    - CIM Delta schema

    ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/wims/schemas/cimdelta-20050902.xml
    - CIM Delta instance machine-generated by XMLSPY

    ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/wims/schemas/cim-test-20050902.xml
    - CIM Delta instance to revise Printer.DetectedErrorState

This schema would support writing an instance document that extends or
replaces every CIM printing class and CIM printing property.  It is
based on the detailed semantics defined in the "Specification for the
Representation of CIM in XML", DMTF DSP0201, Version 2.1, January 2003.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  The DMTF's XML representation of the CIM Model is NOT
based on an XML Schema - it's based on an SGML DTD - Rick Landau agrees
with me that it would be a very large (and useless) job to create an XML
Schema that is is equivalent to this SGML DTD - Rick's tool-to-be will
parse instances of the CIM Delta schema and use them to update the XML
source of the CIM printing objects.

Comments?

Cheers,
- Ira
