212 attribute basic data type
Created: 21 Sep 2005
Status: In Force (green)
Part: Part 6 (2004)
Category: Issue for edition 2 of this part
This clause implies that the basic types "BOOLEAN" ... "Unicode255" are required by the schema. In fact, the actual schema does not require that names be from this list, but only that names begin with an upper-case character and all other characters be alphanumeric. This allows types such as "BOOL" to be incorrectly specified in schema-validated SCL files.
Add note to this clause indicating that the schema does not enforce tPredefinedBasicTypeEnum in SCL files. The note should also state that modifying the schema to change tAbstractDataAttribute / bType from tBasicTypeEnum to tPredifinedBasicTypeEnum would provide a means of validating SCL for Substation Automation.
