About the challenge of building a common XML vocabulary…


How many elements/attributes contains your XML representation of a person’s name?



  • One (Fullname)
  • Two (Firstname, Lastname)
  • Three (Firstname, Middlename, Lastname)
  • Four (Title, Firstname, Middlename, Lastname)

 


Check out the schema published by the HR-XML Consortium for the very same problem: PersonName 1.2 recommendation.


 


Pretty interesting how complicated naming can be!
