Namespace and X-App

X-Application Version: 3.1.2
Tamino Version :
Platform : Win2k
WebContainer : Tomcat 3.3a
JDK Version : 1.3.1_04


I have a schema where i can insert a xml-signature with namespace “ds”. Always when i try to get entries, where this signature exists, i get a nullpointer exception from x-app, with following stack trace:

Error message: internal error
Help message:

I have attached the schema as well.

Thanks for help,

you have the same problem as Carl Hoffmann who posted the following topic

Schema w/ import gives error 500

X-Application 3.1.3 is not able to deal with namespaces. Therefore, I tried out your schema with the current version (X-Application 4.1.1) we are currently working on.

Within your schema an xs:import tag is used. Could you post also the schema referenced by


Many thanks.



namespace support and supporting schemas tat import another schema are new features of X-Application 4.1.1.

The problems addressed by this topic does not longer appear.
