IBM Sterling Ideas

Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

IBM is transforming its request for enhancement (RFE) process. The purpose of the transformation is to provide a more consistent experience for you to submit requests and to enable IBM product owners to respond to your requests more quickly. For more information click here.

Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,
1. Post an idea
2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you
3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notifications on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

 

Merged idea

This idea has been merged into another idea. To comment or vote on this idea, please visit ITX-I-80 Handling XML data Using WTX map.

ignore unknown xml elements when verification is well-formed only Merged

Please add an XML parser option, that checks for well-formedness only and ignores unknown elements, so that WTX maps run successfully when the XML contains the elements that are used in the map. Unknown elements should not raise an error. Only elements that are being used in the map but not given in the XML file should raise an error.

WTX offers verification=well-formed and verification=validation for Xerces based typetrees. Our expectation for the well-formed option was, that WTX ignores validation errors like unknown XML elements. However verification=well-formed runs on error when encountering unkwnown XML elements, even though the XML file is well-formed. Native XSD based cards behave the same way.
