== What does 'go version' print?

go version go1.2.1 darwin/amd64

== What steps reproduce the problem?

http://play.golang.org/p/3_oUruPYhq

== What happened?

Encoder.EncodeToken duplicates namespace attributes.

== What should have happened instead?

The encoded document should have had a single namespace attribute.

== Please provide any additional information below.

Attribute names on an element must be unique; this is a well-formedness constraint per
the XML 1.0 specification (http://www.w3.org/TR/xml/#uniqattspec). Per the
specification, both validating and non-validating parsers must report well-formedness
violations (http://www.w3.org/TR/xml/#sec-conformance).

Encoding and decoding XML documents should be idempotent and produce equivalent
documents.  This issue means that not only that decoding and encoding the result
produces a non-equivalent document, but that the document it generates is
not-well-formed.

This issue only occurs with namespaces.  Normal attributes are handled correctly.

Comment 2:

Here's another example: http://play.golang.org/p/GTjuLNxE-d
This lack of encode/decode idempotency makes things awkward when trying to test for
expected output, as well as the lack of well formedness.

I would expect Token to strip xmlns attributes: if you want them, use RawToken.

The change below does that and appears to fix both of the above examples:

https://code.blinkace.com/go/xml/commit/bded824c18c5a2595e750c920ea5e7437607900c

The code base above also exposes the current set of namespace bindings on Decoder, which is generally more useful that having the xmlns attributes themselves (see #12406)

I wanted to know if there is a work around for this yet (duplication of namespaces)?

I want to use a decoder/encoder combination with Token() to selectively reconstitute an XML document (.NET csproj format)

	for {
		token, _ := decoder.Token()

		encoder.EncodeToken(token)
		if token == nil {
			break
		}
     }

Creating and maintaining all the structs to demarshal into an object is not a suitable solution.

ydnar added a commit to ydnar/go that referenced this issue Oct 14, 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.

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

I want to read an XML file, write to another file, replacing a node in the tree.

I'm doing that using roughly:

decoder.Token()

switch {
    // on receiving the token we want to replace
    encoder.EncodeElement(fragment, t)
    continue
}

encoder.EncodeToken()

In the output document, every element has xmlns="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/encoding/, which is there namespace of the root node of the original doc.

I can't find a way to suppress that

I guess I need to find a different way to transform the file

@iwdgo Given input XML like this

  xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
  xsi:schemaLocation="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/encoding/ AnyConnectProfile.xsd">

should I be able to prevent the Encoder from adding xmlns="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/encoding/ to every element in output by doing something like this?

		switch t := token.(type) {
		case xml.StartElement:
			if t.Name.Local == "AnyConnectProfile" {
				t.Attr = append(t.Attr, xml.Attr{xml.Name{"", "xmlns:prefix"}, ""},)

I say something like, because the above does not work. It results in this on the root element

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

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

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

After closing a tag using a namespace, the valid namespace must be taken
from the opening tag.

encoding/xml: allow callers to specify namespace prefix

A preferred namespace prefix can now be specified by setting the local
name space to "prefix:space".

In a struct tag:

struct Message {
    XMLName struct{} `xml:"urn:ietf:foo foo:message"`
    Value string `xml:"urn:ietf:foo foo:value"`
}

encoding/xml: use tag prefixes if previously defined

Instead of having redundant xmlns= attrs.

encoding/xml: rename (*printer).popPrefix to popPrefixes

since it pops 1 or more prefixes

encoding/xml: rename printer struct fields

To reflect the fact that prefixes apply to tag names, not just attrs.

encoding/xml: preemptively declare and record all namespace prefixes

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

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,

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

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: 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 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,
but the resulting XML should be equivalent (and correct).

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.
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

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

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

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.

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

I’m not sure what the right fix is for this. Malformed namespaces
(leading or trailing colons, more than 1 colon) should result in an error.

encoding/xml: allow callers to specify namespace prefix

A preferred namespace prefix can now be specified by setting the local
name space to "prefix:space".

In a struct tag:

struct Message {
    XMLName struct{} `xml:"urn:ietf:foo foo:message"`
    Value string `xml:"urn:ietf:foo foo:value"`
}

encoding/xml: use tag prefixes if previously defined

Instead of having redundant xmlns= attrs.

encoding/xml: rename (*printer).popPrefix to popPrefixes

since it pops 1 or more prefixes

encoding/xml: rename printer struct fields

To reflect the fact that prefixes apply to tag names, not just attrs.

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: 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.
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
