S1000D Issue 4.2 vs. Issue 4.1 - Part III

Part 3: The Elements and Attributes of the Business Rules Documents

1) The following is a brief analysis of the elements and attributes introduced in Issue 4.2 to provide a schema to cover the business rule document. The principal markup elements their attributes and children used to describe the business rule documents will be discussed.

a) Elements are identified in Red bold text.

b) The attributes are highlighted in Yellow.

c) Elements or attributes added in S1000D Issue 4.2 but not specifically related to the Business rule documents are highlighted in Bright Blue.

d) Definitions are provided for the highlighted items.

e) Definitions are not provided for common attributes and elements found in descriptive data modules and reused in the Business rules document data module.


2) Each element will be presented with its definition, followed by its attributes and children elements.

a) Attribute definitions will be provided when the attribute is first identified.

b) Subsequent occurrences of the elements and attributes will have a reference to the location of the element or attribute definition.

c) Reference to the location of children element definitions is provided.

The following elements are children of several elements. They have been highlighted <brLeveledPara> (5) <brDecision> (6) <brdecisionRef> (8)
