#57 Exception thrown when parsing or generating incomplete documents

PyXB 1.1.0
Content model
PyXB 1.0.0

I tried parsing and generating an incomplete XML document using the advice from Ticket #44. The following stack trace appeared.

Processing file: TestDoc.xml
Traceback (most recent call last):

raise pyxb.MissingContentError()


I've attached sample code to demonstrate the fault.

    Patch relative to 1.0.0 to work around #57

    • status changed from new to closed
    • resolution set to fixed

    Fixed in [2077]. As noted in #44, PyXB is currently not set up for non-validating use. The flag that's causing the problem here is deep enough that it's not clear whether parsing or generating is being done. The attached patch "fixes" this by using the conjunction of Parsing+Generating validation to determine whether validation should occur.

    This fix is unlikely to go into 1.0.1.
