extra namespace attributes added


In an ASP script I receive an XML document like this:

<xql:result xmlns:ino=“http://namespaces.softwareag.com/tamino/response2” xmlns:xql=“XQL FAQ (XML Query Language - Frequently Asked Questions)”>

I let the script process all nodes one by one and do a post to _process these nodes in Tamino. But now when I take a look in Tamino at the updated nodes in each node there’s an extra attribute xmlns:ino=“http://namespaces.softwareag.com/tamino/response2”.

Is there a way to block this extra attribute, because with each update the database grows with the namespace attribute? Or do I have to do it in the ASP script (but then the namespace ino isn’t declared)? ASP seems to do that ‘namespace stuff’ in every root node.


IMHO there is nothing you can do about it.

It shouldn’t present a technical problem and you shouldn’t worry about whether it takes extra space in Tamino.
