You are welcome.  And, I'm glad you've found generateDS.py useful.
I appreciate the comment.

There is support for default values.  You can take a look in the
tests/ directory:


The code that runs the tests is in tests/test.py.

I have not looked at that for a good while.  I'll have to check to
see if it is working myself. ...

OK, I looked, and yes, default_cases*.* seems to be doing what I
expect it to do, which could be different from the correct behavior.
You can compare these files:


defaults_cases2_out.xml is generated from defaults_cases.xml by the
module that was generated from tests/defaults_cases.xsd.
defaults_cases1_out.xml is the "correct" file that the unit test (in
tests/test.py) compares against.

You can also look at tests/defaults_coverage*.  That unit test is
also checking this feature.

If there is something that generateDS.py is not doing with respect
to default values and that you think it should do, could you send me
a test case and tell me what you'd expect instead of what it
actually does.  Perhaps something is broken or perhaps there is a
case that it is not handling.

Thanks in advance for help, and thanks for reporting the problem.

Questions -- I looked at your Web site, and saw the list of
papers that you have written.  Do you use generateDS.py in your
work?  What kind of data and content do you process with it?  Just
