Stepping out of a schema and then back

X-Application Version: 4.1.1
Tamino Version : 4.1.1
Platform : Win2k
WebContainer : Tamocat 4.1.1
JDK Version : 1.4.1

Let us have two schemas, schema A and schema B.
Each instance documents of schema A contains N pointers to instances of schema B.

When editing (or creating) an Schema A instance, I would like to add a new instance of Schema B, and then have a link back to my Schema A page without losing any of the data I had input (like spliting an instance document over multiple pages, but in this case working with multiple document types).

I tried using xapp:link but that didn’t seem to work (which sort of made sense since I was not working with a previously created document, but wanting a new one).

How can I accomplish this?


Hello Joel,

the xapp:link tag should be the right tag to send data from the browser to the server and invoke the next page. However, be aware that the xapp:link tag does not maintain references (pointers) between two documents. This is your (application developer’s) task. You can establish references between documents by using JavaScript or Plugins.

I could give you a better assistance to you problem if you post the JSPs where you edit instances of A and B.

Many thanks.
