Description Jaroslav Tulach 2002-02-11 06:07:52 UTC
Currently it is not easy to specify an array type attribute in XMLFS and in
.nbattrs. But for many cases (actions api, issue 17597) it would be excelent to
have human friendly way to provide array attributes. 

The possible format could look like:

<attr name="attrName" arrayvalue="java.lang.String" > <!-- String[] -->
	<element stringvalue="First" />
	<element stringvalue="Second" />
	<element stringvalue="Last" />
Comment 1 Jesse Glick 2002-02-11 11:17:19 UTC
Should this "block" #17597?
Comment 2 Jaroslav Tulach 2002-02-11 12:30:54 UTC
Ok, blocking 17597 for planning reasons.

Comment 7 Jesse Glick 2003-03-18 10:07:37 UTC
I don't think this is P2! We do OK with comma-separated values in the
current filesystem DTD as far as I know. This is just a syntactic
ease-of-use RFE, which should IMHO be maybe P4.
Comment 8 _ pkuzel 2003-03-18 10:14:40 UTC
Blind guess. Is not there hidden some arrayvalue attribute merging
Comment 9 Jaroslav Tulach 2005-12-09 16:51:49 UTC
Let's do some cleanup.
