Release Notes for Catalog Integration

The following are release notes for catalog ingestion.

Version 1.11 (Feb 18, 2020)

New elements added:

Elements deprecated:

Note that if your catalog data file has deprecated elements, your catalog won't be rejected. However, you should work to remove these elements from your catalog file to improve matching.

Other updates:

Documentation enhancements (Jan 9, 2020)

Documentation has also been enhanced to make it easier to read and understand the CDF schema elements. You can view the schema documentation in two ways:

Element-filtered Web Pages

The web pages show diagrams and code samples that reflect the element hierarchy, parent-children requirements, and other content model details. Expand the Catalog Data Format Schema folder in the sidebar to see each of these element-filtered web pages.

You can also view all elements in a flat list; however, it's more practical to select a common parent element (such as Movie) and look at the diagram and code sample for this element.

When you click an element in the diagram or code sample, a description of that element scrolls into focus below the diagram or code.

The elements with diagram and code pages are as follows:

Auto-Generated Schema Documentation

This documentation is generated directly from the XSD file and provides a more technical representation of the content (but also includes expandable diagrams).

The catalog.xsd file contains documentation annotations that can be rendered out as auto-generated documentation (much like Javadocs from Java). You can view auto-generated schema docs here. Expand the catalog node and then expand the other nodes as desired:

You can also open the catalog.xsd file directly in an XML editor such as Oxygen XML for more enhanced navigation controls.

You can read the XSD file directly to learn the schema logic. If you're new to XSD files, see XML Schema Part 0: Primer Second Edition for an introduction. More formal reference documentation for the XSD schema is available at XML Schema Part 1: Structures Second Edition and XML Schema Part 2: Datatypes Second Edition.
