I recently added support for schema imports in pywrapper mainly to support multiple namespaces in the repsonse.
Me (and Javier) wanted to allow something like this:
Here comes my problem:
How do we refer to the FullScientificName concept in TAPIR?
As a convention for schemas we said to create the fully qualified concept from the namespace and the simple xpath to the element. So somethinkg like this:
A real xpath to that element would of course include several namespaces:
Could it be that we never need to refer to "compound" concepts anyway? A provider would probably map his db to the GCP schema alone. The WFS response is only the responded view/data model and we would still just use gcp#accession/FullScientificName as the qualified concept in filters. This is also true for our simple extension schemas I think (EFG for ABCD, all extensions for DwC). But arent there other cases?
