Documentation on XInclude processing
The page at https://www.saxonica.com/documentation/index.html#!sourcedocs/XInclude doesn't mention the possibility of requesting XInclude processing using query parameters on the URI.
The page at https://www.saxonica.com/documentation/index.html#!configuration/config-features, under RECOGNIZE_URI_QUERY_PARAMETERS, points to "Source Documents" (https://www.saxonica.com/documentation/index.html#!sourcedocs) for information on using query parameters, but it's hard to find out which subsection it's referring to. There are various mentions of query parameters in this chapter, but no comprehensive list.
The section https://www.saxonica.com/documentation/index.html#!sourcedocs/whitespace mentions properties related to whitespace handling.

#3 Updated by Debbie Lockett about 2 months ago
- Status changed from New to In Progress
sourcedocs/XIncludewas updated (commit on 2020-02-29) to "mention the possibility of requesting XInclude processing using query parameters on the URI.", so this got corrected in the Saxon 10 documentation with the 10.0 release (2020-03-16).
There is a comprehensive list of query parameters available when using the
fn:collection()function at https://www.saxonica.com/documentation/index.html#!sourcedocs/collections (under "Processing directories"), but indeed it would be good to add a corresponding list for the query parameters available when using
fn:doc(). Having done this the link from
RECOGNIZE_URI_QUERY_PARAMETERSshould be clarified.
xincludeneeds to be added to the list at
There is some confusion in the documentation about whether validation is specified using the query parameter
validation=strict. Referring directly to the
URIQueryParameters.javasource code, the correct key is
validation, so there are a number of documentation references to fix.
In the fix for Bug #4476: Type error evaluating (fn:collection(...)), a new query parameter
content-typewas added for use in Saxon 10 (when using
fn:collection()). This code was added just after the 10.0 release, on 2020-03-19, so became available from 10.1 (2020-05-14). The new parameter was added to the list at
sourcedocs/collectionsin the documentation source, but intentionally commented out so that it would not be included in the documentation for 10.0. However we neglected to reinstate it for the 10.1 release. This should be fixed.
#4 Updated by Debbie Lockett about 2 months ago
- Status changed from In Progress to Resolved
- Applies to branch 10 added
- Fix Committed on Branch 10 added
The four URI query parameters that are available for use with the
doc() function are:
Committed updates to the documentation source on Saxon 10 and trunk branches:
xincludeadded to the list at
functions/fn/doc, so that this list of the query parameters available is now complete (point 3 above)
- Having done this, I decided not to add a new
sourcedocssection with another copy of this list (and could not see an obvious section for it just to be added to). The vague link to
sourcedocsfrom configuration/config-features, under RECOGNIZE_URI_QUERY_PARAMETERS, has been replaced with specific links to the relevant sections of
sourcedocsfor each of the 4 available query parameters. (This addresses point 2)
- To enable this, a note about using the
parserURI query parameter has been added to
sourcedocs/controlling-parsing(because it wasn't otherwise mentioned there)
- Fixed incorrect
valreferences to the
validationquery parameter (point 4)
- Reinstated documentation for new
collection()query parameter (point 5)
Note no action required for point 1, so this addresses all issues of the bug.
The Saxon 10 documentation will be updated with the next maintenance release.
