X-Plorer combined with XMLSpy is a nice way to update XML documents directly into Tamino, but … it does not keep the ino:docname attribute. This one is deleted after saving from XML Spy.
Let’s say you filter out unneeded documents from the X-Plorer tool and you double clic on a n instance. The instance is opened under XMLSpy (if you have properly configured the X-Plorer). The URL created from X-Plorer and given to XMLSpy (from $URL$) looks like :
that is enough for XMLSpy to open the file. Unfortunately, both ino:id & ino:docname have disappeared … But the “@13119” enables you to save the file with ino:id 13119, but ino:docname is lost for good. I don’t care about ino:id, I am more concerned with ino:docname (this one is used by the XML:DB API). Is it possible to create an URL from X-Plorer which would specifies the ino:docname instead of the ino:id ? This would look like :
I hope this is clear enough.

Well, I beg your pardon … The @ino:docname is indeed provided into the URL opened by XMLSpy, ie :
I am currently trying to reproduce how I got the @ino:id instead of @ino:docname in a particular case …

Hello, I have been able to reproduce the sequence when the X-Plorer provides the ino:id instead of the ino:docname to the associated authoring application (eg XML Spy) : 1. Open X-Plorer 2. Unfold a database (& connect) 3. Unfold a collection 4. Unfold a schema You are now seeing 5 blue diamonds which embody links to the first 5 instances (cursor) of XML documents. 5. Double-clic (action associated with "open XML instance with XML-Spy tool) on any of the diamond. 6. XML-Spy is automatically opened with the XML document. BUT, the URL build by the X-Plorer uses the @ino:id, not the @ino:docname : (eg http://localhost/tamino/DB/coll/doctype/@9?_encoding=utf-8). I know the way how to get the @ino:docname : After step 4, do not directly double-clic on a diamond. Do a single clic on it, let the X-Plorer displays the XML document on the windows at the left hand side. Then do a double clic on the diamond. It looks like you have to wait for the X-Plorer to load the document (display it on the window) before you want to open it under XML-Spy. The loading might be needed to get the @ino:docname. Anyway, this is annoying because I sometimes forget to check the XML-Spy’s URL to see if the @ino:docname is used instead of the @ino:id. If we are dealing with an @ino:id and we save the document from XML-Spy then we get a double (same document with and without @ino:docname). Cheers
