In many tutorials on the internet, I have read that global elements must be name space qualified.

Here are my questions regarding the global emenets :

  • What is meant by global elements. Are they root elements like <purchaseOrder>
  • If I used a default name space for a global elements, do I have still to qualify the element ??

  • Thanks in advance.

    Hi Khaled,

    To answer your first questions yes, global elements enables the element to appear at the top-level of an instance document, also global element can be referenced in one or more declarations using the ref attribute. Also in addition to global elements there are global attributes.
    I am not sure about your second question, however I think global element must be qualified either by explicit qualification of the element or implicit qualification provided by a default namespace.
