HTTP and FTP URIs certainly don't work with filesystem paths. File: URIs only do by convention, and there are (somewhat hand-wavy) rules for mapping filesystem paths to file: URIs. But a filesystem path is-not-a file: URI, and so a filesystem path is never an appropriate argument for fn:resolve-uri() or in fact for any other function defined by XQuery F&O.
Also, URLs are no different than URIs except that URLs are expected to directly point to a resource, where a generic URI may simply name the resource. But they follow the same rules. Neither of them have any relationship to filesystem paths. I'm not saying this is good or bad, it's simply true. And Zorba most certainly works with full URIs, not just URLs. file:path-to-uri() is documented to resolve relative filesystem paths using the current working directory as the base. So you're seeing your RBKT dir because that's the current working directory for testdriver, I suspect. Again, I'm not saying this is good or bad, it's simply true. I would certainly support you if you wanted to say that there should be a two-argument form of this function that allowed you to supply a different base URI or path, but you'll need to run that through the EXPath process (whatever that is). Finally, regarding fn:encode-for-uri(): http://www.w3.org/TR/xpath-functions/#func-encode-for-uri It only escapes *characters* in a string which are illegal in the path segment of a URI. It is not intended in any way to convert a filesystem path to a valid URI (relative or otherwise). -- https://code.launchpad.net/~danielturcanu/zorba/mytrunk/+merge/78253 Your team Zorba Coders is subscribed to branch lp:zorba. -- Mailing list: https://launchpad.net/~zorba-coders Post to : firstname.lastname@example.org Unsubscribe : https://launchpad.net/~zorba-coders More help : https://help.launchpad.net/ListHelp
