(See https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/golang-nuts/5aFvL5dZHvk )

The embedded struct with field name XMLName of type xml.Name (with no tag) is being ignored.

issue #7614 fixed a similar problem when the embedded struct had a tag.

Here's the test:

package main

import (
    "encoding/xml"
    "fmt"
)

type element struct {
    XMLName  xml.Name
    Children []interface{}
}

type svgstr struct {
    element
    Height string `xml:"height,attr,omitempty"`
    Width  string `xml:"width,attr,omitempty"`
}

type svgstr2 struct {
    XMLName  xml.Name
    Children []interface{}
    Height   string `xml:"height,attr,omitempty"`
    Width    string `xml:"width,attr,omitempty"`
}

func main() {
    s := svgstr{
        element: element{XMLName: xml.Name{Local: "svg", Space: "www.etc"}},
        Width:   "400",
        Height:  "200",
    }

    b, _ := xml.MarshalIndent(s, "", " ")
    fmt.Println(string(b))

    //normal behaviour below for comparison . no issues here
    s2 := svgstr2{
        XMLName: xml.Name{Local: "svg", Space: "www.etc"},
        Width:   "400",
        Height:  "200",
    }

    b, _ = xml.MarshalIndent(s2, "", " ")
    fmt.Println(string(b)) //works fine when not embedded
}

The output I get is:

<svgstr height="200" width="400"></svgstr>
<svg xmlns="www.etc" height="200" width="400"></svg>

Both should give the same result, as the second line, with name as "svg" and a xmlns attribute also supplied.

Change https://golang.org/cl/108616 mentions this issue: encoding/xml : fix panic on embedded unexported XMLName

@iwdgo
Copy link
Contributor

iwdgo commented Apr 21, 2018

By laws of reflection, unexported fields are unreachable by .Value. Documentation mentions that reflect package is used. XMLName are allowed at any level of an inner struct but laws of
reflection still prevail.

The "element" field above is not exported and no value can be obtained for the XMLName. This is the origin of the difference and is normal. This issue can cause panic is the cases documented for the reflect
package.

The submitted fix checks that the assigned XMLName value can be obtained by the reflect package.
Otherwise, it is discarded like other fields.

ydnar added a commit to ydnar/go that referenced this issue Oct 12, 2021
All issues of golang#13400 which are not new functionalities have fixes.
There are minor incompatibilities between them due to the handling of
prefixes. Duplicating a prefix or an namespace is invalid XML.
This is now avoided. XML produced is always valid.

Tests have been added for each fix and example and previous tests
fixed as output is already more compact is some cases.

encoding/xml: fix duplication of namespace tags by encoder (golang#7535)

A tag prefix identifies the name space of the tag and not the default name
space like xmlns="...". Writing the prefix is incorrect when it is bound
to a name space using the standard xmlns:prefix="..." attribute.
This fix skips this print.

Consequences are
 - duplication is avoided in line with name space standard in reference.
 - the _xmlns declaration does not appear anymore. To keep the previous
behaviour, the prefix is printed in all other cases. Token now always
produces well-formed XML except when the explicit name space collides
with the prefix.

Made prefix handling "xmlns="space" xmlns:_xmlns="xmlns" _..." has
be removed in all wants of tests. In some cases, useless declarations like
xmlns:x="x" are still added in line with previous behavior.

encoding/xml: fix unexpected behavior of encoder.Indent("", "") (golang#13185, golang#11431)

MarshalIndent and Marshal share code. When prefix and indent are
empty, the behavior is like Marshal when it should have a minimal
indent, i.e. new line as in documentation.

A boolean is added to the local printer struct which defaults to false.
It is set to true only when MarshalIndent is used and prefix and indent
are empty.

encoding/xml: fix overriding by empty namespace (golang#7113)

The namespace defined by xmlns="value" can be overridden in
every included tag including by the empty namespace xmlns="".
Empty namespace is not authorized with a prefix (xmlns:ns="").

Method to calculate indent of XML handles depth of tag and
its associated namespace. The fix leaves the method active even
when no indent is required.

An XMLName field in a struct means that namespace must be
enforced even if empty. This occurs only on an inner tag as an
overwrite of any non-empty namespace of its outer tag.

To obtain the xmlns="" required, an attribute is added.

encoding/xml: fix panic on embedded unexported XMLName (golang#10538)

By laws of reflection, unexported fields are unreachable by .Value.
XMLName are allowed at any level of an inner struct but the struct
may not be reachable. If XMLName field is found without name,
it cannot be exported and the value is discarded like other fields.
Some comments have been to underline where the issue arises.
Another XMLName test was incorrectly set up and is fixed.
Various cases added in a specific test.

encoding/xml: fix panic of unmarshaling of anonymous structs (golang#16497)

Encoding/xml is using type "typinfo" which provides its own "value" method
using the reflection package. It fails to check for the documented possible
panics of the reflection methods. It is impossible to fix the method as the
parameter is also using reflection.

The fix is to discard anonymous structs which have no value anyway.
Encoder/xml documentation already mentions that fields are accessed using
the reflection package. A relevant test is added.

encoding/xml: fix closing tag failure (golang#20685)

Push/pop of elements name must be done using the eventual prefix together
with the tag name. The operation is moved before the translation of prefix
into its URI. One end element of a test is fixed as expecting the last used
namespace is incorrect.
After closing a tag using a namespace, the valid namespace must be taken
from the opening tag.

encoding/xml: add check of namespaces to detect field names conflicts (golang#8535, golang#11724)

Comparing namespaces of fields was missing and false conflicts were detected.

encoding/xml: fix invalid empty namespace without prefix (golang#8068)

Empty namespace is allowed only if it has no prefix. An error message is now
returned if a prefix exists. A similar case when no prefix is provided,
thus with syntax xmlns:="..." is also rejected.

encoding/xml: fix normalization of attributes values (golang#20614)

The attribute value was read as text. The existing attribute reader logic is
fixed as an attribute may have a namespace or only a prefix. Other
possibilities have been removed.

To keep the behavior of raw token which allows many faults in attributes list,
error handling is heavily using the Strict parameter of the decoder.
Specific tests have been added including list of attributes.

To keep the behavior or unmarshal, escaped characters handling has been
added but it is not symmetrical to Marshal for quotes but follows XML
specification.

encoding/xml: fix absence of detection of another : in qualified names (golang#20396)

The occurrence of second : in space and tag name is rejected.

Fixes: golang#7113, golang#7535, golang#8068, golang#8535, golang#10538, golang#11431, golang#13185, golang#16497, golang#20396, golang#20614, golang#20685

encoding/xml: fix printing of namespace prefix in tag names

Prefix displays in XML when defined in tag names.
The URL of the name space is also returned for an End Token as
documentation requires to improve idempotency of Marshal/Unmarshal.

Translating the prefix is popping the NS which was unavailable
for translation. Translate for an End Token has been moved inside
the pop element part.

Fixes golang#9519

This commit reorganizes how namespace prefixes are recorded and detected,

encoding/xml: revert change in 8f143f5277; do not preemptively declare XML namespaces
ydnar added a commit to ydnar/go that referenced this issue May 1, 2023
All issues of golang#13400 which are not new functionalities have fixes.
There are minor incompatibilities between them due to the handling of
prefixes. Duplicating a prefix or an namespace is invalid XML.
This is now avoided. XML produced is always valid.

Tests have been added for each fix and example and previous tests
fixed as output is already more compact is some cases.

encoding/xml: fix duplication of namespace tags by encoder (golang#7535)

A tag prefix identifies the name space of the tag and not the default name
space like xmlns="...". Writing the prefix is incorrect when it is bound
to a name space using the standard xmlns:prefix="..." attribute.
This fix skips this print.

Consequences are
 - duplication is avoided in line with name space standard in reference.
 - the _xmlns declaration does not appear anymore. To keep the previous
behaviour, the prefix is printed in all other cases. Token now always
produces well-formed XML except when the explicit name space collides
with the prefix.

Made prefix handling "xmlns="space" xmlns:_xmlns="xmlns" _..." has
be removed in all wants of tests. In some cases, useless declarations like
xmlns:x="x" are still added in line with previous behavior.

encoding/xml: fix unexpected behavior of encoder.Indent("", "") (golang#13185, golang#11431)

MarshalIndent and Marshal share code. When prefix and indent are
empty, the behavior is like Marshal when it should have a minimal
indent, i.e. new line as in documentation.

A boolean is added to the local printer struct which defaults to false.
It is set to true only when MarshalIndent is used and prefix and indent
are empty.

encoding/xml: fix overriding by empty namespace (golang#7113)

The namespace defined by xmlns="value" can be overridden in
every included tag including by the empty namespace xmlns="".
Empty namespace is not authorized with a prefix (xmlns:ns="").

Method to calculate indent of XML handles depth of tag and
its associated namespace. The fix leaves the method active even
when no indent is required.

An XMLName field in a struct means that namespace must be
enforced even if empty. This occurs only on an inner tag as an
overwrite of any non-empty namespace of its outer tag.

To obtain the xmlns="" required, an attribute is added.

encoding/xml: fix panic on embedded unexported XMLName (golang#10538)

By laws of reflection, unexported fields are unreachable by .Value.
XMLName are allowed at any level of an inner struct but the struct
may not be reachable. If XMLName field is found without name,
it cannot be exported and the value is discarded like other fields.
Some comments have been to underline where the issue arises.
Another XMLName test was incorrectly set up and is fixed.
Various cases added in a specific test.

encoding/xml: fix panic of unmarshaling of anonymous structs (golang#16497)

Encoding/xml is using type "typinfo" which provides its own "value" method
using the reflection package. It fails to check for the documented possible
panics of the reflection methods. It is impossible to fix the method as the
parameter is also using reflection.

The fix is to discard anonymous structs which have no value anyway.
Encoder/xml documentation already mentions that fields are accessed using
the reflection package. A relevant test is added.

encoding/xml: fix closing tag failure (golang#20685)

Push/pop of elements name must be done using the eventual prefix together
with the tag name. The operation is moved before the translation of prefix
into its URI. One end element of a test is fixed as expecting the last used
namespace is incorrect.
After closing a tag using a namespace, the valid namespace must be taken
from the opening tag.

encoding/xml: add check of namespaces to detect field names conflicts (golang#8535, golang#11724)

Comparing namespaces of fields was missing and false conflicts were detected.

encoding/xml: fix invalid empty namespace without prefix (golang#8068)

Empty namespace is allowed only if it has no prefix. An error message is now
returned if a prefix exists. A similar case when no prefix is provided,
thus with syntax xmlns:="..." is also rejected.

encoding/xml: fix normalization of attributes values (golang#20614)

The attribute value was read as text. The existing attribute reader logic is
fixed as an attribute may have a namespace or only a prefix. Other
possibilities have been removed.

To keep the behavior of raw token which allows many faults in attributes list,
error handling is heavily using the Strict parameter of the decoder.
Specific tests have been added including list of attributes.

To keep the behavior or unmarshal, escaped characters handling has been
added but it is not symmetrical to Marshal for quotes but follows XML
specification.

encoding/xml: fix absence of detection of another : in qualified names (golang#20396)

The occurrence of second : in space and tag name is rejected.

Fixes: golang#7113, golang#7535, golang#8068, golang#8535, golang#10538, golang#11431, golang#13185, golang#16497, golang#20396, golang#20614, golang#20685

encoding/xml: fix printing of namespace prefix in tag names

Prefix displays in XML when defined in tag names.
The URL of the name space is also returned for an End Token as
documentation requires to improve idempotency of Marshal/Unmarshal.

Translating the prefix is popping the NS which was unavailable
for translation. Translate for an End Token has been moved inside
the pop element part.

Fixes golang#9519

space like xmlns="...". Writing the prefix is incorrect when it is bound
to a name space using the standard xmlns:prefix="..." attribute.
This fix skips this print.

Consequences are
 - duplication is avoided in line with name space standard in reference.
 - the _xmlns declaration does not appear anymore. To keep the previous
behaviour, the prefix is printed in all other cases. Token now always
produces well-formed XML except when the explicit name space collides
with the prefix.

Made prefix handling "xmlns="space" xmlns:_xmlns="xmlns" _..." has
be removed in all wants of tests. In some cases, useless declarations like
xmlns:x="x" are still added in line with previous behavior.

encoding/xml: fix unexpected behavior of encoder.Indent("", "") (golang#13185, golang#11431)

MarshalIndent and Marshal share code. When prefix and indent are
empty, the behavior is like Marshal when it should have a minimal
indent, i.e. new line as in documentation.

A boolean is added to the local printer struct which defaults to false.
It is set to true only when MarshalIndent is used and prefix and indent
are empty.

encoding/xml: fix overriding by empty namespace (golang#7113)

The namespace defined by xmlns="value" can be overridden in
every included tag including by the empty namespace xmlns="".
Empty namespace is not authorized with a prefix (xmlns:ns="").

Method to calculate indent of XML handles depth of tag and
its associated namespace. The fix leaves the method active even
when no indent is required.

An XMLName field in a struct means that namespace must be
enforced even if empty. This occurs only on an inner tag as an
overwrite of any non-empty namespace of its outer tag.

To obtain the xmlns="" required, an attribute is added.

encoding/xml: fix panic on embedded unexported XMLName (golang#10538)

By laws of reflection, unexported fields are unreachable by .Value.
XMLName are allowed at any level of an inner struct but the struct
may not be reachable. If XMLName field is found without name,
it cannot be exported and the value is discarded like other fields.
Some comments have been to underline where the issue arises.
Another XMLName test was incorrectly set up and is fixed.
Various cases added in a specific test.

encoding/xml: fix panic of unmarshaling of anonymous structs (golang#16497)

Encoding/xml is using type "typinfo" which provides its own "value" method
using the reflection package. It fails to check for the documented possible
panics of the reflection methods. It is impossible to fix the method as the
parameter is also using reflection.

The fix is to discard anonymous structs which have no value anyway.
Encoder/xml documentation already mentions that fields are accessed using
the reflection package. A relevant test is added.

encoding/xml: fix closing tag failure (golang#20685)

Push/pop of elements name must be done using the eventual prefix together
with the tag name. The operation is moved before the translation of prefix
into its URI. One end element of a test is fixed as expecting the last used
namespace is incorrect.
After closing a tag using a namespace, the valid namespace must be taken
from the opening tag.

encoding/xml: add check of namespaces to detect field names conflicts (golang#8535, golang#11724)

Comparing namespaces of fields was missing and false conflicts were detected.

encoding/xml: fix invalid empty namespace without prefix (golang#8068)

Empty namespace is allowed only if it has no prefix. An error message is now
returned if a prefix exists. A similar case when no prefix is provided,
thus with syntax xmlns:="..." is also rejected.

encoding/xml: fix normalization of attributes values (golang#20614)

The attribute value was read as text. The existing attribute reader logic is
fixed as an attribute may have a namespace or only a prefix. Other
possibilities have been removed.

To keep the behavior of raw token which allows many faults in attributes list,
error handling is heavily using the Strict parameter of the decoder.
Specific tests have been added including list of attributes.

To keep the behavior or unmarshal, escaped characters handling has been
added but it is not symmetrical to Marshal for quotes but follows XML
specification.

encoding/xml: fix absence of detection of another : in qualified names (golang#20396)

The occurrence of second : in space and tag name is rejected.

Fixes: golang#7113, golang#7535, golang#8068, golang#8535, golang#10538, golang#11431, golang#13185, golang#16497, golang#20396, golang#20614, golang#20685

encoding/xml: fix printing of namespace prefix in tag names

Prefix displays in XML when defined in tag names.
The URL of the name space is also returned for an End Token as
documentation requires to improve idempotency of Marshal/Unmarshal.

Translating the prefix is popping the NS which was unavailable
for translation. Translate for an End Token has been moved inside
the pop element part.

Fixes golang#9519

ydnar added a commit to ydnar/go that referenced this issue May 1, 2023
All issues of golang#13400 which are not new functionalities have fixes.

error handling is heavily using the Strict parameter of the decoder.
Specific tests have been added including list of attributes.

To keep the behavior or unmarshal, escaped characters handling has been
added but it is not symmetrical to Marshal for quotes but follows XML
specification.

encoding/xml: fix printing of namespace prefix in tag names

Prefix displays in XML when defined in tag names.
The URL of the name space is also returned for an End Token as
documentation requires to improve idempotency of Marshal/Unmarshal.

Translating the prefix is popping the NS which was unavailable
for translation. Translate for an End Token has been moved inside
the pop element part.

Fixes golang#9519

This commit reorganizes how namespace prefixes are recorded and detected,

Some tests are changed, because the value of the marshalled XML has changed,

encoding/xml: revert change in 8f143f5277; do not preemptively declare XML namespaces
ydnar added a commit to ydnar/go that referenced this issue May 1, 2023
All issues of golang#13400 which are not new functionalities have fixes.
There are minor incompatibilities between them due to the handling of
prefixes. Duplicating a prefix or an namespace is invalid XML.
This is now avoided. XML produced is always valid.

Tests have been added for each fix and example and previous tests
fixed as output is already more compact is some cases.

encoding/xml: fix duplication of namespace tags by encoder (golang#7535)

A tag prefix identifies the name space of the tag and not the default name
space like xmlns="...". Writing the prefix is incorrect when it is bound
to a name space using the standard xmlns:prefix="..." attribute.
This fix skips this print.

Consequences are
 - duplication is avoided in line with name space standard in reference.
 - the _xmlns declaration does not appear anymore. To keep the previous
behaviour, the prefix is printed in all other cases. Token now always
produces well-formed XML except when the explicit name space collides
with the prefix.

Made prefix handling "xmlns="space" xmlns:_xmlns="xmlns" _..." has
be removed in all wants of tests. In some cases, useless declarations like
xmlns:x="x" are still added in line with previous behavior.

encoding/xml: fix unexpected behavior of encoder.Indent("", "") (golang#13185, golang#11431)

MarshalIndent and Marshal share code. When prefix and indent are
empty, the behavior is like Marshal when it should have a minimal
indent, i.e. new line as in documentation.

A boolean is added to the local printer struct which defaults to false.
It is set to true only when MarshalIndent is used and prefix and indent
are empty.

encoding/xml: fix overriding by empty namespace (golang#7113)

The namespace defined by xmlns="value" can be overridden in
every included tag including by the empty namespace xmlns="".
Empty namespace is not authorized with a prefix (xmlns:ns="").

Method to calculate indent of XML handles depth of tag and
its associated namespace. The fix leaves the method active even
when no indent is required.

An XMLName field in a struct means that namespace must be
enforced even if empty. This occurs only on an inner tag as an
overwrite of any non-empty namespace of its outer tag.

To obtain the xmlns="" required, an attribute is added.

encoding/xml: fix panic on embedded unexported XMLName (golang#10538)

By laws of reflection, unexported fields are unreachable by .Value.
XMLName are allowed at any level of an inner struct but the struct
may not be reachable. If XMLName field is found without name,
it cannot be exported and the value is discarded like other fields.
Some comments have been to underline where the issue arises.
Another XMLName test was incorrectly set up and is fixed.
Various cases added in a specific test.

encoding/xml: fix panic of unmarshaling of anonymous structs (golang#16497)

Encoding/xml is using type "typinfo" which provides its own "value" method
using the reflection package. It fails to check for the documented possible
panics of the reflection methods. It is impossible to fix the method as the
parameter is also using reflection.

The fix is to discard anonymous structs which have no value anyway.
Encoder/xml documentation already mentions that fields are accessed using
the reflection package. A relevant test is added.

encoding/xml: fix closing tag failure (golang#20685)

Push/pop of elements name must be done using the eventual prefix together
with the tag name. The operation is moved before the translation of prefix
into its URI. One end element of a test is fixed as expecting the last used
namespace is incorrect.
After closing a tag using a namespace, the valid namespace must be taken
from the opening tag.

encoding/xml: add check of namespaces to detect field names conflicts (golang#8535, golang#11724)

Comparing namespaces of fields was missing and false conflicts were detected.

encoding/xml: fix invalid empty namespace without prefix (golang#8068)

Empty namespace is allowed only if it has no prefix. An error message is now
returned if a prefix exists. A similar case when no prefix is provided,
thus with syntax xmlns:="..." is also rejected.

encoding/xml: fix normalization of attributes values (golang#20614)

The attribute value was read as text. The existing attribute reader logic is
fixed as an attribute may have a namespace or only a prefix. Other
possibilities have been removed.

To keep the behavior of raw token which allows many faults in attributes list,
error handling is heavily using the Strict parameter of the decoder.
Specific tests have been added including list of attributes.

To keep the behavior or unmarshal, escaped characters handling has been
added but it is not symmetrical to Marshal for quotes but follows XML
specification.

encoding/xml: fix absence of detection of another : in qualified names (golang#20396)

encoding/xml: preemptively declare and record all namespace prefixes

Immediate children of XML tags that share a namespace and prefix will now
have that namespace prefix declared on the parent tag.

Explicitly declared namespace prefixes via xmlns:prefix="uri" attributes
will now have their values recorded and reused for marshalling child tags.

This commit reorganizes how namespace prefixes are recorded and detected,
along with how start tags are recorded via a slice of element structs.

Some tests are changed, because the value of the marshalled XML has changed,
but the resulting XML should be equivalent (and correct).

encoding/xml: restore tests with xmlns:prefix= attrs to existing behavior

Use xmlnsURL instead of xmlnsPrefix to specify namespace prefixes.

encoding/xml: prefer unprefixed names where possible

encoding/xml: add EncodeToken tests for explicit prefixes

encoding/xml: add test cases for prefixed local names

encoding/xml: revert change in 8f143f5277; do not preemptively declare XML namespaces
ydnar added a commit to ydnar/go that referenced this issue May 1, 2023
All issues of golang#13400 which are not new functionalities have fixes.
There are minor incompatibilities between them due to the handling of
prefixes. Duplicating a prefix or an namespace is invalid XML.
This is now avoided. XML produced is always valid.

Tests have been added for each fix and example and previous tests
fixed as output is already more compact is some cases.

encoding/xml: fix duplication of namespace tags by encoder (golang#7535)

A tag prefix identifies the name space of the tag and not the default name
space like xmlns="...". Writing the prefix is incorrect when it is bound
to a name space using the standard xmlns:prefix="..." attribute.
This fix skips this print.

Consequences are
 - duplication is avoided in line with name space standard in reference.
 - the _xmlns declaration does not appear anymore. To keep the previous
behaviour, the prefix is printed in all other cases. Token now always
produces well-formed XML except when the explicit name space collides
with the prefix.

Made prefix handling "xmlns="space" xmlns:_xmlns="xmlns" _..." has
be removed in all wants of tests. In some cases, useless declarations like
xmlns:x="x" are still added in line with previous behavior.

encoding/xml: fix unexpected behavior of encoder.Indent("", "") (golang#13185, golang#11431)

MarshalIndent and Marshal share code. When prefix and indent are
empty, the behavior is like Marshal when it should have a minimal
indent, i.e. new line as in documentation.

A boolean is added to the local printer struct which defaults to false.
It is set to true only when MarshalIndent is used and prefix and indent
are empty.

encoding/xml: fix overriding by empty namespace (golang#7113)

The namespace defined by xmlns="value" can be overridden in
every included tag including by the empty namespace xmlns="".
Empty namespace is not authorized with a prefix (xmlns:ns="").

Method to calculate indent of XML handles depth of tag and
its associated namespace. The fix leaves the method active even
when no indent is required.

An XMLName field in a struct means that namespace must be
enforced even if empty. This occurs only on an inner tag as an
overwrite of any non-empty namespace of its outer tag.

To obtain the xmlns="" required, an attribute is added.

encoding/xml: fix panic on embedded unexported XMLName (golang#10538)

By laws of reflection, unexported fields are unreachable by .Value.
XMLName are allowed at any level of an inner struct but the struct
may not be reachable. If XMLName field is found without name,
it cannot be exported and the value is discarded like other fields.
Some comments have been to underline where the issue arises.
Another XMLName test was incorrectly set up and is fixed.
Various cases added in a specific test.

encoding/xml: fix panic of unmarshaling of anonymous structs (golang#16497)

Encoding/xml is using type "typinfo" which provides its own "value" method
using the reflection package. It fails to check for the documented possible
panics of the reflection methods. It is impossible to fix the method as the
parameter is also using reflection.

The fix is to discard anonymous structs which have no value anyway.
Encoder/xml documentation already mentions that fields are accessed using
the reflection package. A relevant test is added.

encoding/xml: fix closing tag failure (golang#20685)

Push/pop of elements name must be done using the eventual prefix together
with the tag name. The operation is moved before the translation of prefix
into its URI. One end element of a test is fixed as expecting the last used
namespace is incorrect.
After closing a tag using a namespace, the valid namespace must be taken
from the opening tag.

encoding/xml: add check of namespaces to detect field names conflicts (golang#8535, golang#11724)

Comparing namespaces of fields was missing and false conflicts were detected.

encoding/xml: fix invalid empty namespace without prefix (golang#8068)

Empty namespace is allowed only if it has no prefix. An error message is now
returned if a prefix exists. A similar case when no prefix is provided,
thus with syntax xmlns:="..." is also rejected.

encoding/xml: fix normalization of attributes values (golang#20614)

The attribute value was read as text. The existing attribute reader logic is
fixed as an attribute may have a namespace or only a prefix. Other
possibilities have been removed.

To keep the behavior of raw token which allows many faults in attributes list,
error handling is heavily using the Strict parameter of the decoder.
Specific tests have been added including list of attributes.

To keep the behavior or unmarshal, escaped characters handling has been
added but it is not symmetrical to Marshal for quotes but follows XML
specification.

encoding/xml: fix absence of detection of another : in qualified names (golang#20396)

The occurrence of second : in space and tag name is rejected.

Fixes: golang#7113, golang#7535, golang#8068, golang#8535, golang#10538, golang#11431, golang#13185, golang#16497, golang#20396, golang#20614, golang#20685

encoding/xml: fix printing of namespace prefix in tag names

Prefix displays in XML when defined in tag names.
The URL of the name space is also returned for an End Token as
documentation requires to improve idempotency of Marshal/Unmarshal.

Translating the prefix is popping the NS which was unavailable
for translation. Translate for an End Token has been moved inside
the pop element part.

Fixes golang#9519

Some comments have been to underline where the issue arises.
Another XMLName test was incorrectly set up and is fixed.
Various cases added in a specific test.

encoding/xml: fix panic of unmarshaling of anonymous structs (golang#16497)

Encoding/xml is using type "typinfo" which provides its own "value" method
using the reflection package. It fails to check for the documented possible
panics of the reflection methods. It is impossible to fix the method as the
parameter is also using reflection.

The fix is to discard anonymous structs which have no value anyway.
Encoder/xml documentation already mentions that fields are accessed using
the reflection package. A relevant test is added.

encoding/xml: fix closing tag failure (golang#20685)

Push/pop of elements name must be done using the eventual prefix together
with the tag name. The operation is moved before the translation of prefix
into its URI. One end element of a test is fixed as expecting the last used
namespace is incorrect.
After closing a tag using a namespace, the valid namespace must be taken
from the opening tag.

encoding/xml: add check of namespaces to detect field names conflicts (golang#8535, golang#11724)

Comparing namespaces of fields was missing and false conflicts were detected.

encoding/xml: fix invalid empty namespace without prefix (golang#8068)

Empty namespace is allowed only if it has no prefix. An error message is now
returned if a prefix exists. A similar case when no prefix is provided,
thus with syntax xmlns:="..." is also rejected.

encoding/xml: fix normalization of attributes values (golang#20614)

The attribute value was read as text. The existing attribute reader logic is
fixed as an attribute may have a namespace or only a prefix. Other
possibilities have been removed.

To keep the behavior of raw token which allows many faults in attributes list,
error handling is heavily using the Strict parameter of the decoder.
Specific tests have been added including list of attributes.

To keep the behavior or unmarshal, escaped characters handling has been
added but it is not symmetrical to Marshal for quotes but follows XML
specification.

encoding/xml: fix absence of detection of another : in qualified names (golang#20396)

The occurrence of second : in space and tag name is rejected.

Fixes: golang#7113, golang#7535, golang#8068, golang#8535, golang#10538, golang#11431, golang#13185, golang#16497, golang#20396, golang#20614, golang#20685

encoding/xml: fix printing of namespace prefix in tag names

Prefix displays in XML when defined in tag names.
The URL of the name space is also returned for an End Token as
documentation requires to improve idempotency of Marshal/Unmarshal.

Translating the prefix is popping the NS which was unavailable
for translation. Translate for an End Token has been moved inside
the pop element part.

Fixes golang#9519

encoding/xml: fix typo in test
ydnar added a commit to ydnar/go that referenced this issue May 5, 2023
All issues of golang#13400 which are not new functionalities have fixes.
There are minor incompatibilities between them due to the handling of
prefixes. Duplicating a prefix or an namespace is invalid XML.
This is now avoided. XML produced is always valid.

Tests have been added for each fix and example and previous tests
fixed as output is already more compact is some cases.

encoding/xml: fix duplication of namespace tags by encoder (golang#7535)

A tag prefix identifies the name space of the tag and not the default name
space like xmlns="...". Writing the prefix is incorrect when it is bound
to a name space using the standard xmlns:prefix="..." attribute.
This fix skips this print.

Consequences are
 - duplication is avoided in line with name space standard in reference.
 - the _xmlns declaration does not appear anymore. To keep the previous
behaviour, the prefix is printed in all other cases. Token now always
produces well-formed XML except when the explicit name space collides
with the prefix.

Made prefix handling "xmlns="space" xmlns:_xmlns="xmlns" _..." has
be removed in all wants of tests. In some cases, useless declarations like
xmlns:x="x" are still added in line with previous behavior.

encoding/xml: fix unexpected behavior of encoder.Indent("", "") (golang#13185, golang#11431)

MarshalIndent and Marshal share code. When prefix and indent are
empty, the behavior is like Marshal when it should have a minimal
indent, i.e. new line as in documentation.

A boolean is added to the local printer struct which defaults to false.
It is set to true only when MarshalIndent is used and prefix and indent
are empty.

encoding/xml: fix overriding by empty namespace (golang#7113)

The namespace defined by xmlns="value" can be overridden in
every included tag including by the empty namespace xmlns="".
Empty namespace is not authorized with a prefix (xmlns:ns="").

Method to calculate indent of XML handles depth of tag and
its associated namespace. The fix leaves the method active even
when no indent is required.

An XMLName field in a struct means that namespace must be
enforced even if empty. This occurs only on an inner tag as an
overwrite of any non-empty namespace of its outer tag.

To obtain the xmlns="" required, an attribute is added.

encoding/xml: fix panic on embedded unexported XMLName (golang#10538)

By laws of reflection, unexported fields are unreachable by .Value.
XMLName are allowed at any level of an inner struct but the struct
may not be reachable. If XMLName field is found without name,
it cannot be exported and the value is discarded like other fields.
Some comments have been to underline where the issue arises.
Another XMLName test was incorrectly set up and is fixed.

Immediate children of XML tags that share a namespace and prefix will now

Some tests are changed, because the value of the marshalled XML has changed,

encoding/xml: fix typo in test
ydnar added a commit to ydnar/go that referenced this issue May 21, 2023
All issues of golang#13400 which are not new functionalities have fixes.
There are minor incompatibilities between them due to the handling of
prefixes. Duplicating a prefix or an namespace is invalid XML.
This is now avoided. XML produced is always valid.

Tests have been added for each fix and example and previous tests
fixed as output is already more compact is some cases.

encoding/xml: fix duplication of namespace tags by encoder (golang#7535)

A tag prefix identifies the name space of the tag and not the default name
space like xmlns="...". Writing the prefix is incorrect when it is bound
to a name space using the standard xmlns:prefix="..." attribute.
This fix skips this print.

Consequences are
 - duplication is avoided in line with name space standard in reference.
 - the _xmlns declaration does not appear anymore. To keep the previous
behaviour, the prefix is printed in all other cases. Token now always
produces well-formed XML except when the explicit name space collides
with the prefix.

Made prefix handling "xmlns="space" xmlns:_xmlns="xmlns" _..." has
be removed in all wants of tests. In some cases, useless declarations like
xmlns:x="x" are still added in line with previous behavior.

encoding/xml: fix unexpected behavior of encoder.Indent("", "") (golang#13185, golang#11431)

MarshalIndent and Marshal share code. When prefix and indent are
empty, the behavior is like Marshal when it should have a minimal
indent, i.e. new line as in documentation.

A boolean is added to the local printer struct which defaults to false.
It is set to true only when MarshalIndent is used and prefix and indent
are empty.

encoding/xml: fix overriding by empty namespace (golang#7113)

The namespace defined by xmlns="value" can be overridden in
every included tag including by the empty namespace xmlns="".
Empty namespace is not authorized with a prefix (xmlns:ns="").

Method to calculate indent of XML handles depth of tag and
its associated namespace. The fix leaves the method active even
when no indent is required.

An XMLName field in a struct means that namespace must be
enforced even if empty. This occurs only on an inner tag as an
overwrite of any non-empty namespace of its outer tag.

To obtain the xmlns="" required, an attribute is added.

encoding/xml: fix panic on embedded unexported XMLName (golang#10538)

By laws of reflection, unexported fields are unreachable by .Value.
XMLName are allowed at any level of an inner struct but the struct
may not be reachable. If XMLName field is found without name,
it cannot be exported and the value is discarded like other fields.
Some comments have been to underline where the issue arises.
Another XMLName test was incorrectly set up and is fixed.
Various cases added in a specific test.

encoding/xml: fix panic of unmarshaling of anonymous structs (golang#16497)

Encoding/xml is using type "typinfo" which provides its own "value" method
using the reflection package. It fails to check for the documented possible
panics of the reflection methods. It is impossible to fix the method as the
parameter is also using reflection.

The fix is to discard anonymous structs which have no value anyway.
Encoder/xml documentation already mentions that fields are accessed using
the reflection package. A relevant test is added.

encoding/xml: fix closing tag failure (golang#20685)

Push/pop of elements name must be done using the eventual prefix together
with the tag name. The operation is moved before the translation of prefix
into its URI. One end element of a test is fixed as expecting the last used
namespace is incorrect.
After closing a tag using a namespace, the valid namespace must be taken
from the opening tag.

encoding/xml: add check of namespaces to detect field names conflicts (golang#8535, golang#11724)

Comparing namespaces of fields was missing and false conflicts were detected.

encoding/xml: fix invalid empty namespace without prefix (golang#8068)

Empty namespace is allowed only if it has no prefix. An error message is now
returned if a prefix exists. A similar case when no prefix is provided,
thus with syntax xmlns:="..." is also rejected.

encoding/xml: fix normalization of attributes values (golang#20614)

The attribute value was read as text. The existing attribute reader logic is
fixed as an attribute may have a namespace or only a prefix. Other
possibilities have been removed.

To keep the behavior of raw token which allows many faults in attributes list,
error handling is heavily using the Strict parameter of the decoder.
Specific tests have been added including list of attributes.

To keep the behavior or unmarshal, escaped characters handling has been
added but it is not symmetrical to Marshal for quotes but follows XML
specification.

encoding/xml: fix absence of detection of another : in qualified names (golang#20396)

The occurrence of second : in space and tag name is rejected.

Fixes: golang#7113, golang#7535, golang#8068, golang#8535, golang#10538, golang#11431, golang#13185, golang#16497, golang#20396, golang#20614, golang#20685

encoding/xml: fix printing of namespace prefix in tag names

Prefix displays in XML when defined in tag names.
The URL of the name space is also returned for an End Token as
documentation requires to improve idempotency of Marshal/Unmarshal.

Translating the prefix is popping the NS which was unavailable
for translation. Translate for an End Token has been moved inside
the pop element part.

Fixes golang#9519

space like xmlns="...". Writing the prefix is incorrect when it is bound
to a name space using the standard xmlns:prefix="..." attribute.
This fix skips this print.

Consequences are
 - duplication is avoided in line with name space standard in reference.
 - the _xmlns declaration does not appear anymore. To keep the previous
behaviour, the prefix is printed in all other cases. Token now always
produces well-formed XML except when the explicit name space collides
with the prefix.

Made prefix handling "xmlns="space" xmlns:_xmlns="xmlns" _..." has
be removed in all wants of tests. In some cases, useless declarations like
xmlns:x="x" are still added in line with previous behavior.

encoding/xml: fix unexpected behavior of encoder.Indent("", "") (golang#13185, golang#11431)

MarshalIndent and Marshal share code. When prefix and indent are
empty, the behavior is like Marshal when it should have a minimal
indent, i.e. new line as in documentation.

A boolean is added to the local printer struct which defaults to false.
It is set to true only when MarshalIndent is used and prefix and indent
are empty.

encoding/xml: fix overriding by empty namespace (golang#7113)

The namespace defined by xmlns="value" can be overridden in
every included tag including by the empty namespace xmlns="".
Empty namespace is not authorized with a prefix (xmlns:ns="").

Method to calculate indent of XML handles depth of tag and
its associated namespace. The fix leaves the method active even
when no indent is required.

An XMLName field in a struct means that namespace must be
enforced even if empty. This occurs only on an inner tag as an
overwrite of any non-empty namespace of its outer tag.

To obtain the xmlns="" required, an attribute is added.

encoding/xml: fix panic on embedded unexported XMLName (golang#10538)

By laws of reflection, unexported fields are unreachable by .Value.
XMLName are allowed at any level of an inner struct but the struct
may not be reachable. If XMLName field is found without name,
it cannot be exported and the value is discarded like other fields.
Some comments have been to underline where the issue arises.
Another XMLName test was incorrectly set up and is fixed.
Various cases added in a specific test.

encoding/xml: fix panic of unmarshaling of anonymous structs (golang#16497)

Encoding/xml is using type "typinfo" which provides its own "value" method
using the reflection package. It fails to check for the documented possible
panics of the reflection methods. It is impossible to fix the method as the
parameter is also using reflection.

The fix is to discard anonymous structs which have no value anyway.
Encoder/xml documentation already mentions that fields are accessed using
the reflection package. A relevant test is added.

encoding/xml: fix closing tag failure (golang#20685)

Push/pop of elements name must be done using the eventual prefix together
with the tag name. The operation is moved before the translation of prefix
into its URI. One end element of a test is fixed as expecting the last used
namespace is incorrect.
After closing a tag using a namespace, the valid namespace must be taken
from the opening tag.

encoding/xml: add check of namespaces to detect field names conflicts (golang#8535, golang#11724)

Comparing namespaces of fields was missing and false conflicts were detected.

encoding/xml: fix invalid empty namespace without prefix (golang#8068)

Empty namespace is allowed only if it has no prefix. An error message is now
returned if a prefix exists. A similar case when no prefix is provided,
thus with syntax xmlns:="..." is also rejected.

encoding/xml: fix normalization of attributes values (golang#20614)

The attribute value was read as text. The existing attribute reader logic is
fixed as an attribute may have a namespace or only a prefix. Other
possibilities have been removed.

To keep the behavior of raw token which allows many faults in attributes list,
error handling is heavily using the Strict parameter of the decoder.
Specific tests have been added including list of attributes.

To keep the behavior or unmarshal, escaped characters handling has been
added but it is not symmetrical to Marshal for quotes but follows XML
specification.

encoding/xml: fix absence of detection of another : in qualified names (golang#20396)

The occurrence of second : in space and tag name is rejected.

Fixes: golang#7113, golang#7535, golang#8068, golang#8535, golang#10538, golang#11431, golang#13185, golang#16497, golang#20396, golang#20614, golang#20685

encoding/xml: fix printing of namespace prefix in tag names

Prefix displays in XML when defined in tag names.
The URL of the name space is also returned for an End Token as
documentation requires to improve idempotency of Marshal/Unmarshal.

Translating the prefix is popping the NS which was unavailable
for translation. Translate for an End Token has been moved inside
the pop element part.

Fixes golang#9519

encoding/xml: fix typo in test
ydnar added a commit to ydnar/go that referenced this issue Aug 14, 2023
All issues of golang#13400 which are not new functionalities have fixes.

This is now avoided. XML produced is always valid.

fixed as output is already more compact is some cases.
