Table Metadata

Simple Quick Change

In order to provide holding places for metadata being entered by AstroGrid datacenters now, we need to add two new elements to the column definition ( ErrorColumn & UcdPlus ):

   <xs:complexType name="ParamType">
      <xs:sequence>
         <xs:element ref="vr:Name" />
         <xs:element ref="vr:Description" minOccurs="0"/>
         <xs:element ref="vs:DataType" minOccurs="0"/>
         <xs:element ref="vs:Unit" minOccurs="0"/>
         <xs:element ref="vs:UCD" minOccurs="0"/>
         <xs:element name="ErrorColumn" type="xs:string" minOccurs="0"/>
         <xs:element name="UcdPlus" type="xs:string" minOccurs="0"/>
      </xs:sequence>
   </xs:complexType>

Once the discussion is complete on UCD versioning and column associations, we can change the above and transform the documents as appropriate

TabularSkyServiceType class change

As above, but also change TabularSkyServiceType to TabularServiceType which then just describes tables. It becomes an element in SkyService, rather than a subclass. This should make it easier to map to VOTable headers, and of course means we can reuse TabularServiceType for RDBMS-based services that are not sky objects.

Factor out UCD, UcdPlus, DataType and Units

Given these are (or will be) used so often, it might be worth defining a tiny 'master' schema for each of these elements so they can be reused more easily. However if they're used more widely, it will become considerably more difficult for them to develop...

Extend relationshipType enumeration

I would like to extend the relationshipType enumeration with at least a served-by value that is the converse of the service-for value so that it makes it easy to point to a service from a resource. (More detail can be found on http://wiki.astrogrid.org/bin/view/Astrogrid/RelatedRegistryResources)

This has been added to VOResource v1.0.
