Hey folks,

I am just starting to study for OCPJWSD, here in the basic profile i just found some do's and dont's. Can anyone explain why it is so?

An ENVELOPE MUST NOT contain a Document Type Declaration. why?

An ENVELOPE MUST NOT contain Processing Instructions. why?

An ENVELOPE SHOULD NOT contain the namespace declaration xmlns:xml="http://www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespace". why?

A DESCRIPTION SHOULD NOT contain the namespace declaration xmlns:xml="http://www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespace". why?

, Please don't mind if it's a silly question, i would like to know the reason for it instead of simply memorizing.

Thanks,
Sakthi

Hi,

You listed some requirements from basic profile. But actually all of them have a short explanation prepended.

In particular, answer for the first two your questions is:


XML DTDs and PIs may introduce security vulnerabilities, processing overhead and semantic ambiguity when used in envelopes.



Best regards,
MZ
